Garrrr, looks like they've succumbed to the power of Meta-filtration.

Very cool.

An Illinois generator would just have random two-word combinations of "Oak," "River," "Park," "Forest" and "Hills." Or at least for the Chicago suburbs.

It's nice, but I'd like to see a more robust algorithm that would more closely follow our state's heritage of phonetic Native American words (actually, he does well on that), mangled French, and total non-sequiturs (like Embarrass and Eleva).

Yah, well, it's only funny because it's true, ya know. Heydeehoder!

Love it! A Minnesota version would constantly generate "Lake ___" and "Minne ____."

This made me laugh. Wisconsin has more owocs per capita than any other state.

Lived in WI for 5 years, and the scary thing is I can pronounce the random names without looking at the "say it with me" part.

I don't think you could do one of these for Ontario. No generator would ever come up with Stouffville.
