The Things That Make Lizards Laugh
I happened to be reading the Wikipedia entry for Morgantown, West Virginia. Does anybody else find this sentence laugh-out-loud funny, in a Bob Newhart sort of way?
Morgantown is the largest city in North-Central West Virginia, and is the principal city of the Morgantown, West Virginia Metropolitan Statistical Area.

It's not nearly as funny when you know how many other major cities are in the Morgantown Metropolitan area, like Bruceton Mills. I must admit, though, that browsing Wikipedia entries for entertainment had not occurred to me. Thanks.

Wow, what an excellent use of the language to make a point. By the time I struggled through it I had forgotten the point they were trying to make. LOL.

I always get a chuckle when I hear a basketball score for Middle Tennessee State. I assume there's an Eastern Tennessee and a Western Tennessee State, but you never hear about them.
And when was the last time you heard from the University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople?
