Imagine the tourism campaign for Boring, Oregon or Dull, Ohio. Or Christians living in Satan’s Kingdom, Massachusetts. Or a hair salon in Bald Head, Maine...

For many who actually live in these very real places across the US, it’s their reality.

According to a new map by Zippia, these town names can be the butt of jokes across the country. Or the "Elephant Butte" of jokes, if you live in New Mexico.
