Climax comes in at the number two spot, nestled comfortably behind Toad Suck, Ark. and above Boring, Oregon and Maryland.

Calls for comment from Climax Mayor Charles Hadsock haven't yet been returned.

According to the state guide, Climax got its name from its geographical position along the railroad.

"Climax is the highest point on the railroad between Savannah and the Chattahoochee River. After its founding in the 1880s, the town served as a rail junction and an agricultural community. It later incorporated in 1905," the site states. "For many years Climax flourished, its businesses, churches, hotels, and services sustaining the community. With the coming of paved highways and the cutback of rail services, however, the town's economic strength declined."

If you think these are bad, you should hear some of the towns in the Amish region of Pennsylvania.

How about Virginville........which is just down the road from Blue Ball. Can't make it up. Oh and of course there's Intercourse which is pretty close by. All true.

You see where folks' minds are nowadays. They do not have anything else to do and I hope taxpayers money did not pay for this.

And Cumming, Iowa where the local, and only, bar sells hats and T shirts that have " I Love Cumming" on them. Actually, they have heart instead of the word love. The Catholic church ladies group had them made, then someone told them the message had other meanings so they donated them to the bar.
