From the humble McDonald's hamburger to the sun-kissed stars decorating our tv screens, America has given us many things over the years- but better than any of those things are these weird-sounding American towns.

From Bacon to Deadhorse (yes, really), here are some of the weirdest-sounding towns across good ol' USA.

1. Bacon Level, AL


Bacon Level may not be the home for the World Bacon Frying Championships (unfortunately), but it is an unincorporated community around 3–4 miles southeast of Roanoke, in Randolph County, Alabama, United States.

A devoutly religious area, nearby churches include... wait for it.... Bacon Level Baptist Church. 

2. Deadhorse, AK

Alaska is undoubtedly one the most stunning, pastoral landscapes in the whole of the Americas, but it could perhaps do with changing the name of one of its towns.

Whilst few people live in Deadhorse, the eerie name, which quite frankly sounds like something out of a Stephen King novel, is mainly a short-term resting place for oil workers and the companies that operate nearby the Prudhoe Bay Oil Field.

3. Nothing, AZ

Perhaps the most uninspired town name in America, this Arizona ghost town mostly attracts intrepid tourists.

Located in Eastern Mohave County, Arizona, the name is pretty apt in fairness so we can't knock it too much.

4. Greasy Corner, AR


Greasy Corner can be found in the southern heartlands of St. Francis County, Arkansas, United States. 

While you can say what you want about the South, one thing they do better than most other Americans is that they make us laugh.
