Which unusually-named Arkansas town makes Buzzfeed list?

Well, it's not Snowball, Hogeye, Smackover, or Greasy Corner… but it does have an unusual name, and a lot of history.

It's Toad Suck, Arkansas! The Faulkner County town made Buzzfeed's list of "14 Places You Won't Believe Actually Exist." In fact, it's #1 on the list, followed by Crotch Crescent in the U.K. and Cheesequake, New Jersey.

The legend of Toad Suck is that long ago, steamboats are said to have traveled the Arkansas River when the water was at the right depth. When it wasn't, crews would sit at the lock and dam. While they waited, they are said to have hung out a tavern there and "suck on the bottle 'til they swell up like toads."
