GWB once answered a question about his favourite childhood book with "The very hungry caterpillar", a book which wasn't published until his 20s.*

DISH (place in Texas)

DRAIN (place in Oregon)

Yes, Drain, Oregon.

I have no idea why, but I've been there.

Oh, I know, they all agreed to use a specific brand of drain cleaner.

The QI Talk thread 'People Whose Names Are Unexpectedly Their Own' has DILDO Island, Newfoundland.

Just trying to rearrange thread posts for research purposes.

Is this important?
