    LOL LOL - what are they thinking when they name these places? You'd think someone would have figured out the names are insane. But good for a laugh. :-)

    Parks are ususlly "government" entities, right?
    So, that explains the thinking process - or lack thereof.

    I was hanging out with some friends this weekend and they told me about an Inn they went to when they were at a lake once.

    No lie.... it was called Dick's Halfway Inn. The place actually has a deal where you can order a shot of alcohol and then put a tiny minnow in it to drink it. I don't know why anyone would want to do that, but it's a big deal there.

    I had to laugh when I realized that then you ...

    "Have to go to Dick's Halfway Inn to Swallow the Minnow" Say it outloud to yourself and the double entendre will be obvious.

    Too crazy, but good for a laugh.

    (Just checked it out online - it's even actually called Big Dick's Halfway Inn) Geez.

    Sticking with the Canadian theme Ryan got going, I recall there being a park in Alberta called Head Smashed In Point.

    It was a place where native Canadian "Indians", probably Inyuit, would herd buffalo over a cliff as a form of hunting.

    One of the natives decided he'd like to see what it looked like from the bottom of the cliff. You can fill in the rest.

    True story. As I know it.
