city of industry

While tracking a package today I learned that there is actually a place in California called City of Industry. That is, the city is actually called “City of Industry.” For some reason that sounds more ridiculous than Industryville, Industrytown, or even Industriopolis. Perhaps it is because those actually sound fake, like something out of The Phantom Tollbooth (c.f. Digitopolis). I think a contributing factor is that City of Industry demands a sort of booming TV-announcer voice whenever you say it. Cityyyyy of In-dussssstryyyyyyyy. Ok, everybody try it now.
