Census Prankster Renames Bevis Lake

Posted by Hello

It's now... wait for it, wait for it... Butthead Lake!

LAKE STEVENS, Wash. (Jan. 7) - To the Washington state Department of Natural Resources, it's Bevis Lake. In Census Bureau records, it's Butthead Lake.

Ken Brown, a land surveyor with the state agency, suspects somebody in the federal agency decided to have some fun with the name of the 5.7-acre lake in a forested area about 25 miles northeast of Seattle.

He noted that U.S. Geological Survey topographic maps also show the name as Bevis Lake.
