Originally called Sylvia, the area developed into a farming center. An attempt by residents to change the settlement's name from Sylvia to Money after local store owner John A. Money was rejected by postal authorities and the name Cash was substituted.

Mount Ayr, Iowa - nothing mountainous or even hilly in this area. It was named after Ayr, Scotland, which has no "mount" prefix, but almost certainly has more rugged terrain.

In Indianapolis, the Capital and close to the exact center of the state, you go north to get to South Bend, south to get to North Vernon, go northwest to East Chicago, and go east to get to West College Corner, Middletown, and Centerville.

Indiana has always been somewhat of a weird state.

To add further confusion as to whether or not it's ironic, Blue Ball, PA is very close to Intercourse, PA.
