Yeah, that's great and all, but this isn't about that. It's about the name of the town. Bad Axe. How cool is that?! I'd live there. "Where ya from?" "Bad Axe." Awesome!
And where did the lucky Mr. Donald Ertman purchase the ticket from? Why, from the Bad Axe Party Store & BP Gas Station, of course! Now there's a combo you don't see every day. Party supplies...AND petroleum! All in one convenient location. (It's been a long time since I've felt like throwing a party whenever I was buying gas, I'll tell you that.)
Actually, Mr. Ertman doesn't reside in Bad Axe. No, he's nearby. Over there in Sanilac County's Minden Township in Michigan's Thumb. That's pretty cool, too. Michigan's Thumb.
How come there aren't more cities named with a hybrid of the state and a body part? Tennessee's Elbow! Montana's Kidney! North Dakota's Little Toe! California's Armpit!
Oh. That's why.
