An iconic Southern Indiana pharmacy has announced that it will be closing for good.

Last year, I wrote an article about Butt Drugs in Corydon, Indiana. It's a locally owned pharmacy that catches everyone's attention by its name alone. Butt Drugs has been in business for 71 years, but unfortunately, the pharmacy has decided that it will be closing very soon.

For those who don't know about Butt Drugs, let me give you a brief rundown. Butt Drugs is a local pharmacy in Corydon, Indiana with a funny name as well as some funny products. Butt is a family name, and Butt Drugs is a third-generation family pharmacy established in 1952. According to their website:

Our pharmacy, old-fashioned soda fountain, and gourmet confectionery, as well as unique and local beer, wine, & moonshine - are only a taste of our one-stop shop.  Along with the vintage novelty of our store, we have apparel to recognize the uniqueness of our name.

Not only are they known for their low prices, the soda machine, Butt Shakes, and merchandise, but more importantly, their infamous commercial.

This commercial became so much of a hit that it even made its way to Ellen in 2010 in a segment that highlighted funny commercials.

Butt Drugs is Closing for Good

The owner of Butt Drugs in Corydon, Katie Beckort, announced that the iconic pharmacy will be closing on April 29th, according to WHAS11. Beckhort wrote a letter to customers announcing the closure, saying that the decision to close did not come lightly. In the letter, she wrote that changes with insurance reimbursements over the years were a leading factor in the pharmacy closing. You can read the full letter by clicking here.

KEEP READING: 40 Real Indiana Towns with Quirky, Weird, and Funny Names

Outside the major cities, the Hoosier state is full of tiny little towns you've probably passed through on your way to one of those cities. Most of them are likely 100 to 150 years old, or older, and have been around far longer than the large metropolitan areas such as Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Evansville. Typically, they were started by early settlers who found their way to the state and decided to make it home. Eventually, others would join them, and a community was formed. Over time, as the surrounding areas grew, most of them were folded into those areas and governed by the nearest city or county's governing body officially making them "unincorporated," meaning they did not have their own formally organized municipal government.

A scroll through Wikipedia's long list of unincorporated communities in Indiana shows several of them have names that by today's standards would be considered weird, quirky, or just downright right funny. These are my 40 favorities.
