    There are dozens. 

    Accident, MD
    Intercourse and Blue Ball, PA
    Bat Cave, NC

    This would make a great hub for somebody, delving into the origins of these unusual names.

    From Alabama, I bring you Boar Tush, Lickskillet,  There is also Monkey's Eyebrow,AZ. And who can forget Larry Birds hometown of French Lick, IN?

    In Kentucky you have Big Bone Lick State Park, as well as
    Big Beaver Lick, and the ever popular Monkey's Eyebrow.
    And if you are in West Virginia, check out Booger Hole.

    I could go all day

    There is a village in Wales called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch - honest!
    It means 'Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave'
