A new list of towns is getting attention for all the weird reasons.

Ding Dong, Handsome Eddy and Beer Bottle City aren't just funny phrases; they're the actual names of towns.

The blog on real estate website listed the most oddly named town in each state.

Here in Michigan, the village of Free Soil - which is about 20 miles southeast of Manistee - got the nod for our state's strangest.

Elsewhere across the U.S., Mormon Bar, California, Chicken Bristle, Illinois and Boring, Oregon also made the list.

Other strange town names include Pigg, Kentucky and Worms, Nebraska.

But perhaps the strangest name can be found in West Virginia, with the town of Boogie Hole.
