NC body parts

Posted August 10, 2011

We're constantly trying to find new and interesting ways to profile our communities across the state. Next week in our Hometown Hello segment we will talk about foot-related towns.

Today's question - what other NC towns sound like a body part such as like Morehead City?  We will feature your examples in coming weeks.

Getting back to foot-related towns and places - this is what I've come up with so far. Are there others?

    I'm confused....what does NECK and HEAD have to do with FEET??
    Do you folks not read well?? Bill, you are more patient and accommodating than I'd be with people who don't pay attention !

    There is a community in Johnston County near Selma called SHOEHEEL.
