LET IT NEVER BE SAID THAT THIS BLOG FAILS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE PUBLICATION OF GREAT WORLD LITERATURE

Tomorrow!

Yes, I think it is today.

Or is it the Day after tomorrow?

Very odd - the MB just says "TODAY" and when you click the comments, you get the correct headline.

And FYI - I've been to St Mellons....

you have to refresh the main page, i guess, higgy. i had typed in the word "TODAY" and then tried to backspace but somehow it posted instead. sorry!

Yes, Higgy, but have you been to Back Passage, London?

OK - I get how "Wetwang" made the Brit "rude" list - but what the heck's wrong with "Burke Street"?

also - I know people that would move to "Butt Hole Road" just cuz of the name

That's nothing. I believe Canada has a place called Head-Smashed-in-Bufflo-Jump. But this is truly some great literature.

Titty Ho!

I take issue with their choice of number one (Cocks, Cornwall) on the grounds that it is not a double entendre.

It is, of course, a single entendre and quite outside the scope of a book that claims to chronicle the most double-entendre riddled localities.


As for towns with fun names, I'd head for Belchertown, NY (Motto: Hey! At least we ain't Fartsburg!)

TCK - to call someone a Burk(e) in Britain is to essentially call them an idiot - hence it made the list.

elle - I'm not touching your Back Passage (comment....)

upper dicker, indeed. i like that one.

How about Athol, Massachusetts?

*zips in*

I'm puzzled (what's new?) because I don't see where it says "TODAY"....

or am I just LTTG?

The book was created by Rob Bailey and Ed Hurts, who used to live in Lincolnshire.

Ed Hurts ... I think his brother Dick was in my high school English class. Although come to think of it, when the substitute called off the class list he was never actually there.

Greg - ever hear of another name for a rooster?

I don't get why Lincolnshire is there.

How about Weed, OR?

" Shingay cum Wendy,"? What ?

What puzzles me is that this was in the Scunthorpe Telegraph, but Scunthorpe didn't make the list.

Maybe they're working on the 200-name list?

Is there a definitive list like this for North America?

I would rather go to Back Passage than Mudchute, but I really want a place in Twatt.

Anyone else notice that the article managed to publish the entire book? Way to sell!

The kind of book I'd like to read while vacationing in beautiful Dildo, Newfoundland.

I live in Chagrin Falls (chagrin falls on anyone who does not vist this town) and there are many streets named after it (I would never be very happy liveing on chagrin road... though I do live off it)
