Yarra? Glenelg? These are real places?
A lot of Australian town/place names are Aboriginal words, like Yarra. Glenelg isn't though.

Established in 1836, it is the oldest European settlement on mainland South Australia. It was named after Lord Glenelg, a member of British Cabinet and Secretary of State for War and the Colonies. Through Lord Glenelg the name derives from Glenelg, Highland, Scotland. In Scottish Gaelic the name is Gleann Eilg. The name Glenelg is noteworthy for being a palindrome.

We have some good town names like Jolly Dump, Johnson Siding and Booge, SD. And don't forget about Gaylord, MN!

I had to Google Jolly Dump to see what it was like. They show a car wash as one of their tourist destinations. http://trip-suggest.com/united-states/s ... olly-dump/

But I guess it's better than Baltimore showing abandoned buildings for people to go and shoot dope or smoke crack in. So I don't judge.

It's not so much a town as it's a place on the map :olol: It looks like the Splash N Dash car wash is actually located up the road in Belle Fourche, a town that I wouldn't recommend visiting.

At least there are some people living in Johnson Siding.
