Candidate for Funniest River Name

Please forgive me for this, but if you are ever traveling east through the Smokey Mountains on the way to North Carolina, keep an eye out for the French Broad, which we just passed a moment ago.

    Hello Mr Smith,

    In possibly a similar vein to the French Broad we have a stream in New Zealand’s South Island mountains that has the quirky name, “Petticoat Lane”. (Not Petticoat Lane Stream or … Creek or … River; just Petticoat Lane.)

    Let’s not even speculate..

    I always enjoy crossing the “Straight River” driving up I-35 in Minnesota. That one should win for the most ironic river name.

What are you thinking?
