Funny Place Names of Saskatchewan and Newfoundland

There are many funny place names in Canada. Flin Flon, Optic Lake and Wampum in Manitoba; Hungerford, Pain Court and Zigzag in Ontario; Aachikaayusaakaasich Portage in Quebec, Blubber Bay in B.C., Dead Man’s Flats in Alberta, Nuttby in Nova Scotia, Poodles Corner in P.E.I. and Snafu Creek in the Yukon Territory.
But the two provinces in Canada with the nuttiest names have to be Saskatchewan and Newfoundland. As the lists below demonstrate.
