Ah, yes. I just looked up "whimsy" in the dictionary and saw your face there.

The definition of my sex life is "whimsy."  The merest mention of it never fails to bring a smile to people's faces.

I've cut back on the whimsy in the past few years.   I find too much joy a bad thing.

I painted my bathroom walls pink with sparkles, is that whimsical enough?  And no, before anyone asks, I don't call them my sugar walls.

Illinois doesn't have many whimsical town names.  We have Kickapoo and Goofy Ridge, that's kind of funny!  Indiana, however, has French Lick and Santa Claus!

Kickapoo is the name of an American Indian tribe of Algonquin origin, who are also closely related to the Sauk and Fox (also of Algonquin lineage if I remember right.)

Indiana has French Lick, huh? Well knowing full well what French women are capable of (through personal experience) I think I know how the town got it's name.  Smile

Santa Claus, Indiana? Now there's a name...

Kickapoo is a real name? I always thought it was made up by Al Capp.

Kickapoo Joy Juice was one of my mom's frequently-used terms for alcohol, medicine or any unusual concoction. I think I've mentioned having a knowledge of Dogpatch long before ever seeing a strip, thanks to Mom's peculiar references.

On the subject of funny place names, not far from where I grew up, there is a place called Punkydoodles Corners. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punkeydoodles_Corners,_Ontario

Haha, I have a can of this at home:




Since we're still on funny place names, we have a few which are fun to say and are a little silly too [there are many more which are more traditional names like Wolloomooloo and Nar Nar Goon]:

Boing Boing
Bong Bong
Boyland
Come By Chance
Delicate Nobby
Dismal Swamp
Eggs and Bacon Bay
Humpybong
Mount Buggery
Pimpinbudgie

There are plenty more, but I'll try not to hijack the thread too much with stupid names...

Umaril is right, the Kickapoo are an actual people still alive.

It's pretty harmless, but I wouldn't recommend you continue with the use of the term "Kickapoo Joy Juice."  I doubt anybody would care, but there's a lot of hidden negativity there.

I don't use it myself, but it's part of my mom's repertoire. She's a funny one for taking offense to some terms (in an exaggeratedly self-righteous way), but using others that are at least as offensive. She'll "tsk tsk" if you call someone a bugger, but she will frequently refer to someone as a "sod," which is the same thing.

Heh. Reminds me of when I was in high school. Me and a friend were in charge of making programs for the next talent show, which had a Monty Python theme. As a throwaway, on the back we had written "Bugger off." The coordinator told us there was no way we could print that, so we ended up replacing it with "Sod off," which she was cool with.

I've never actually made the connection with the origin of "sod" before.

As far as Indian history goes, New Jersey (my home state) is full of it, as well as PA.
NJ and PA were once inhabited by the Lenni Lenape. In their language it means "the first people" or "the real people."    This supports the fact they were the very first Algonguin speaking people to find (and settle) the Eastern Woodlands also earning them the name "the grandfather tribe."

They were commonly mis-named "Delaware" though, as they lived along the banks of the mighty Delaware river.   Almost every other Eastern tribe  (from the Penobscot and Micmac of Maine) all the way to the Powhatan of Virginia are of Algonquin dialect.

Indy should know this one, but the Delaware people of Texas are actually NJ's Lenni Lenape! Sometime around 1722, the last of the peoples moved off of the banks of the Raritan river and moved westward, eventually settling into Texas.

A lot more to say, but to cover the history of the Eastern Woodland people would take forever. Let me just say it's been a real honor to have known some of the people who are still left.
