Monday Silliness: California Creeks

Some mornings, anything will make me giggle.

Oddly, these are all Northern and Northish-Central California features. One might interpret this as evidence for the relative phonetic unsilliness of the Chumashish and Aztec-Tanoan language families, but preliminary data from Cahuilla belies this hypothesis. The monotonous crappiness of Southern California place names can instead be blamed on the Spanish missionaries, as if we needed another reason to hate them.
