Would you want YOUR mailing address to be Kiester (German for ass)?

Seriously, I spent my summers at my grandfather's a few miles from here, and it's a quiet place with decent schools, but not much work around and brutal winters.  I recall walking onto the roof of my grandparents' house from a 1-1/2 story high snowbank during the winter of 1965.  And you may recall my long tome about how my great uncle died - that happened about 2 miles east of Kiester.

Sorry for your uncle.
But speaking of town names, Joppa in Maryland sounds exactly the same for Russians, the same word, even vulgar one...

Many towns in America are biblical names/cities of the holy land.  My guess is this is the case for Joppa MD.  Other translations for Joppa are Jaffa, Yafa, and Yafo.  This is an ancient port on the Mediterranean coast of Israel next to Tel Aviv.

Keister's not so bad, you could live here in Austria instead?

Actually, it did... back in the '80s, President Reagan made some crack about "that really is a pain in the kiester" - and the residents of this small town banded together and protested the negative connotations.  One of the networks picked up the story as a "hi hi" human interest story.

Well, Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes - so you're not too far from bodies of water.  Closest lakes IIRC are Minnesota Lake (about 10 mi) or Freeborn Lake (about 7 mi).

Salt water is about 1300 miles due east.

Sounds interesting.
I wonder if I could convince the family to sell out and move there.
