Slapout, OK. Story goes that Slapout got it's name from an early store keeper who, when asked if he had a certain item would reply, "No, we are slapout of that." I havent been there in about 8 yrs or so but there was still a gas station left at that time.

^^^ You forgot Moon (Twp). I remember when my parents lived in Mars. My ex and I were visitng them on Christmas Day, and formerly DH called his family and said "Merry Christmas from Mars" when they answered the phone in Illinois. They hung up on him.
