The time is 1868 in Cass County, Missouri. The Postmaster General has mail for a new settlement but needs a name so the railroad knows where to stop. The townspeople vote several times but each time the name they choose is taken. The frustrated Postmaster General suggests, “choose any damn name you like as long as it is peculiar”. Deal done.

We won’t go down the route of discussing what happens at C and J. We’ve heard peculiar people live that way and we’re having none of that! So let’s stop thinking dirty and move on to the next crazy sign.
