I personally don't like the grungy sound of "Scranton" either. I've even heard one tourist joke about it as being called "*******." We used to be called "Slocum Hollow," which I thought was a much prettier name.

I can't believe "*******" is censored! Well, just use your imagination to picture a part of the sexual male anatomy that starts with the letters "Scr". LOL!

Isn't there a town already named S C R O T U M in PA? Oh wait, that's SCOTRUN - I can't drive by that sign on Rt 80 without cracking up.

Never got to stop there, but I passed the exit for Toomsuba. MS many times when I was a long haul driver and always wondered what it was like there... (Toomsuba is East of Meridian, MS on I-20/59)
