    The Giz Wiz Asks You! > Any more suggestions to where the TWiT Home Office should be located?

    Here are some of the suggestions we've received so far:

    I like to watch you and Leo on stickam. I very seldom miss a show. I have a good name for your home office. Big Bone Lick,Ky. Keep up the good work: Dave

    Is there a Wedlock, TX? My dad says we have a few cousins born just out of Wedlock. Scott

    If the "home office" chooses to move from Arkansas, may I offer two options here in Oregon. These are real towns...Remote, Oregon: This is a tiny place in the woods off State Route 42 between Roseburg and Coos Bay. It is...DUH!...remote.

    Boring, Oregon: Boring is located on state route 212 (Clackamas-Boring Highway) southeast of Gresham, heading from the Portland area into the mountains. I've never been there so I can't tell you if Boring is boring. Keep up with the fabulous "GizWiz" As long as you're there, "I'll be here"!
    Denny Pyott. Glide, Oregon

    I have a couple of recommendations for you. Both are in my home state of Indiana.
    1. French Lick, Indiana.
    2. Gas City, Indiana.
    Yes, both of them are real towns in Indiana. Actually Larry Bird is from French Lick.
    Paul ( you can call me Pete) Griswold
    Ft. Wayne, IN

    Right now we've zeroed in on Cheesequake, NJ for TWiT's home office, thanks to Jeff in Pittsburgh.

    Back when Letterman started doing the whole Home Office thing, my sister and I would compose our own top 10 lists from our home office in Cheesequake, NJ. Yes, there is actually a town called Cheesequake in New Jersey. You wanted a funny name, you can't get much funnier than that. However, if you want to work blue, here in Pennsylvania we have Blue Ball & Intercourse.

    Any more suggestions? Just post them here!

    The international office should be in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso in Africa. Pronounced: oo-ag-a-doo-goo

    How about Short Pump, Va. Yes it is a real town, just south of Richmond I do believe!

    Don't know for the Home Office but have some for the foreign (European) office,
    These are all in the UK:

    1.Apes Hall (Norfolk)
    2.California (Norfolk)
    3.Giggleswick, North Yorkshire
    4.Great Snoring (Norfolk)
    5.Ham and Sandwich (Kent)
    6.Little Snoring (Norfolk)
    7.Mousehole (Cornwall)
    8.Crackpot (Dorset)

    There's always Hell Michigan - you could say you orders come directly from Hell. I've always thought Salt Lick and Bone Lick were strange names for cities in KY.

    As you might know already there are two possible locations in the German speaking region that are not far from each other. You can go within 40 minutes from Petting in Germany to Fucking in Austria.

    Here are the directions:

    Regina Saskatchewan, as made famous by Dave Letterman back in the day.

    Gary, Indiana also has a nice ring to it.

    Hell, MI.
    If I assume "The worse your life the better we sound" I need to move to Hell to get the best possible listening experience. The only detail is that I will need reviews of personal cooling devices. Leo could also use these gadgets to cool his guest seeing he is too cheap to turn on the A/C. I think that employees of TWIT need a union to resolve this issue maybe Alfred E. could be there union president?

    Middelfart, Denmark. Perfect for visiting GizWix'es as it's an important train junction in Denmark.
