    Default Toad Suck, Arkansas, voted “most unfortunate” town name

    A new poll across seven English-speaking countries has chosen Toad Suck, Arkansas, as having the "most unfortunate" town name in the U.S.
    Toad Suck, an unincorporated community in Perry County, took top dishonors, edging out Climax, Georgia, and Boring, Oregon.
    The poll was conducted by the genealogy site Findmypast.com, and polled respondents in the U.S. U.K., Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
    "Some people are disconcerted to learn that their forebears came from somewhere called Toad Suck, Roachtown or Monkey's Eyebrow," said Josh Taylor, genealogist and spokesperson for the site, in a press release.
    Toad Suck reportedly takes its name from a once popular drinking location for boaters on the Arkansas River. The toadsuck.org site explains in more detail, "While they waited, they refreshed themselves at the local tavern there, to the dismay of the folks living nearby, who said: 'They suck on the bottle 'til they swell up like toads.' Hence, the name Toad Suck."
    Interestingly, Climax's unique name isn't its only claim to fame. It's also home to the annual "Swine Time" festival.
    The Top 10 list was voted in the following order:
    Toad Suck, Ark.
    Climax, Ga.
    Boring, Ore.
    Hooker, Okla.
    Assawoman, Md.
    Belchertown, Mass.
    Roachtown, Ill.
    Loveladies, N.J.
    Squabbletown, Calif.
    10. Monkey's Eyebrow, Ky.
    "I maybe expected Squabbletown to rank higher," Taylor said.

    All pretty bad, but I still think this one could have been added to the list, even though technically it is not a city

    It is what it is

    I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said

    I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.

    These towns were likely disqualified to give the others a chance.
