Weird Names and Alabama Sucks

I worked some overtime yesterday delivering meds in south Alabama. I noticed that Alabama has some towns with the weirdest names:

Pintlala
Pine Apple
Bagdag---that's right, we have our very own.

What's up with that?

Also, on a completely unrelated note my team got their asses spanked yesterday 28-18 in the Iron Bowl. I'm glad I was driving the whole day and wasn't watching.[xx(][xx(]

There's a "Bagdad" in Louisiana, too.

There is a small town in downstate Illinois called Pekin, and up until a few years ago the high school baseball team was known as the Pekin Chinks. I kid you not.

No Shakehat, but we do have Enterprise, Equality, Reform and a Normal (Which is anything but. Think Deliverance.)
