Town Name Goes From Dripping Springs to Pound Town
Remember when Marty used to be Pearl Lake? And quite frankly, some people still call it that... or I have heard "where's Marty"? AND I was just reminded this morning about how St. Augusta tried to change their name to Ventura. Wasn't that short lived... or what exactly happened with that? Or was that just a short lived Jesse Ventura thingy?
Anyway, those don't even begin to top this deal in Texas. A town is called Dripping Springs which I think is sort of cool. But nope- they want to change their name to Pound Town. Seriously? There are so many jokes about this that come to mind. It sounds so dirty, but isn't. It's actually a name from the town's founders, Dr. Joseph and Sarah Pound. I would probably re-think that one. No one, other than the people who live there are going to get the connection.
There's a go-fund me page that you can donate to, if you'd like. Would be kind of funny, wouldn't it?
