Maybe it’s because I grew up in a state (Kentucky) with town names like “Kettle Island” (there’s no body of water larger than a pond there), “Hazard” (no, no Dukes around), and “Dwarf” (look it up). Maybe it’s just my appreciation for puns, no matter how dumb. Whatever the reason, it makes me quietly happy that people like these are taking advantage of the names of their hometowns, no matter how silly they may seem. It’s a very English and American thing to do!
