Somewhere over Indo-Asia there are waypoints:

Sqauk followed by the waypoint Ident.

I looked twice on the charts when I saw it.

China has a VOR waypoints in the west called VOR and VFR: how silly is that.

Just off the Florida keys is DROWN intersection!
And somewhere, I can't remember if I saw it in Africa or coming over the Med, is VARIG intersection. Should have out that one somewhere in Brasil!

It's a shame that GA pilots use ICAO codes, because otherwise a pilot filing KSUX-KDIK would have a pretty funny route (SUX-DIK)

In Chicago, we have KUBBS and, IIRC, BEARS.
