It must be hard growing up in Toad Suck, Arkansas.
Seriously: This unappetizingly named spit of unincorporated land covers barely a mile and is twisted up in a dense thicket of vegetation. You’d have to be some kind of good ol’ boy Tarzan, swinging from kudzu and washing your nutria codpiece in the river, to survive in the wilds of Toad Suck.
Despite its lack of infrastructure, though, the place recently won top honors in an online poll to find America’s most unfortunate “town” name. In a survey conducted by the family-tree website Find My Past, voters the world over proved that a burg that conjures the thought of dude slurping on a nodulous amphibian was worse than Belchertown, Massachusetts; Climax, Georgia; Hooker, Oklahoma; and a charming little hamlet in Illinois called Roachtown.
