I do not have a subtle sense of humour so I certainly enjoy fart jokes and the like. Perhaps it is no surprise I laugh like a drain at rude place names. Here is a selection found on a rude name page on the i-r-genius website. I will stick with locations in the English speaking world. India may have places called Cumbum and Dikshit but I am sure both have a totally different meaning in the local language. We should know better than to call a place Felch!
Here are a few of my my favourites
Cuckoo’s Knob, Wiltshire (yes I know knob also means prominent hill, but I am being puerile here)
Felchville. There are Felchvilles in Vermont and Maryland
Humptulips, Washington. According to Wikipedia the name is derived from a local native American language meaning “hard to pole”…
The Bastard, near Campbeltown, Scotland
Twatt. There are Twatts in the Orkneys and the Shetlands (there are twatts everywhere of course!). The word is derived from the Norse for “small parcel of land”. Still it makes for an amusing road sign!
And my all time favourite:
Wanker’s Corner. Here is the website of the Wankers Corner Saloon
