Between Saarbrücken and Zweibrücken in southwest Germany there is a small town called Einöd (Wasteland). It was funny to see a roadsign which read "Wasteland 3 km" ...

Or imagine a job interview:
"So you was born in Wasteland ... ahem, what wasteland are you referring to?"
"Well, Wasteland."
"What wasteland?"
"Wasteland."
"F#*k off. Next please." Big grin

When I was studying for my commercial driving liscence, we would drive to a town called Boring.

One of the best county fairs I have been to is for Gilliam County in eatern Oregon. The name of the town where the fair is held (and largest city) is Condon; Spanish for condom.

Near to where I live is a place called Nasty, and just a few miles further on is a place called Ugley.

This lead, some years ago, to a now famous (infamous) local newspaper headline which read :

"Nasty Man Marries Ugley Woman"

There is also an Ugley Womans Institute and a Nasty Working Mens Club

The best bit about funny place names is to hear the pronunciations that the inhabitants come up with to make them sound less rude,
