If you ever expand the quiz, give Toad Suck, Arkansas a spot. And Scooba, Mississippi; Quicksand, Kentucky; Ninety Six, South Carolina; and Gin Gin, Queensland. All legit, although all pretty obscure.

I nominate Yellowknife, NWT (it's even the capital!). There is also Blue Ball, Pennsylvania, which is actually a big antiquing destination. And if you find Blue Ball …frustrating, you can always stop in nearby Intercourse.

Bad, like no good? Like was it rusty or had a rotten handle or something? Or is that a technical term I'm just not familiar with?

Out of all of these, I've only been to King of Prussia. It's just outside of Philadelphia and has a huge shopping mall. I sincerely doubt most people who visit there know Prussia was ever a country, let alone where it was.

King of Prussia Mall was actually mentioned in the movie "Silver Linings Playbook". Unfortunately, Jennifer Lawrence enunciated it properly rather than spoke it like a native, which woulda been "Kinga Prussia Mawl".

"Walla Walla cat's meat, eat brown bread, ever seen a donkey drop dead!" A silly rhyme you might have heard in a UK school playground in the near past (post-war) Nonsensical, but now I know where the "Walla Walla" bit comes form....
