I've decided to try and do something puerile regularly, so I've settled on the intrinsically silly placename (along with 10,000 other blogs, probably). Hey, this is just for my own entertainment, I don't really believe anyone else is reading it.
This month's settlement saddled with an unfortunate moniker is: Elephant Butte, New Mexico. Situated near the Elephant Butte Reservoir, it is named after a volcanic plug that looked a bit like an elephant.
