Funny place names

Inspired by jackass (did you know there is a school in Mianus?), I thought I would regale you with these gems (it’s even funnier if you’re peurile or you’ve been there on your bike - top marks if anyone has a picture of them pulling silly grins next to a town sign). If you live in one of these places, I’m assuming you have a sense of humour to begin with.

There’s a boat-load of restaurants in Peiness. I know because I once went through Wetwang headed North. And anyone who’s been to Box Hill will be familiar with Burpham. Hoho!

Well I’m familiar with Dicker, Upper Dicker and Lower Dicker…

Hey i know where they are too!

How about Devils Dyke? Pratts Bottom?

Lets not forget Pratt street and Bentdick road, both in Camdem

C*** Street in Colechester… (****ing censorship ********, ****s ****e)

The missus was on the phone at work the other day with a woman in Mumbles, her diction wasn’t so good.

True story.

Butt Hole Road in Conisbrough Parks, DN12,-1.211758&spn=0.005222,0.021629&om=1&iwloc=A

Fanny Hands Lane in Ludford, LN8,-0.204449&spn=0.020937,0.086517&om=1&iwloc=A

There’s always ****ermouth (known locally as ****inmouth!) in Cumbria, an area of which is called Pap Castle

Twatt in Orkney****t,Orkney&db=freegaz&scale=100000&search_result=****t%2COrkney&lang=&keepicon=true

Right, that’s enough silliness for today

My Mum and Dad live in North Scotland near FOCHABERS.

Only about 40 miles away from my family mate.

I pass Weedon all the time (supposedly not pronounced “Wee’d on”!). You don’t get to it after passing through Peiness though… but you can get to it by going through Willey on the A5…

EnlargeThe most frequently stolen [1] traffic sign in Austria, at the entrance to the village of ****ing.****ing (IPA: /ˈfʊkɪŋ/—the “u” is pronounced like the “u” in English “put”) is a small settlement (population c. 150), part of the municipality of Tarsdorf, in the Innviertel region of western Upper Austria, located at <A title= href=“”>48°02′59″N, 12°50′59″E, bordering Bavaria. [2] It is near the city of Salzburg. The village is known to have existed as “****ing” since at least 1070 and is named after a man from the 6th century called Focko. “Ing” is an old Germanic suffix meaning “people”; thus ****ing, in this case, means “place of Focko’s people”. [3]

The name, spelled identically to the gerund form of the often-used English profanity****,” is often found amusing by Anglophones. In German the name has no obvious associations, amusing or otherwise, although most German speakers are aware of the English word. The German equivalent of “to ****,” regarded as equally vulgar to the English word, is ficken (IPA [ˈfɪkən]).

The settlement’s most famous feature is a traffic sign with its name on it beside which English-speaking tourists often stop to have their photograph taken. The sign is the most commonly stolen street sign in Austria. Significant amounts of public funds are spent on replacing the stolen signs. In August 2005 the road signs were replaced with theft-proof signs welded to steel and secured in concrete to make the signs harder to take. [4]

On some photographs that can also be found through the Internet, below the sign with the name “****ing” there is another sign with the words “Bitte - nicht so schnell!” on it. This sign is a German warning for car drivers to drive slowly because of children (under the text there is also a picture of two children). The humorous point in this sign is that “Bitte — nicht so schnell!” means “Please — not so fast!” in English. Combined with the name of the village, it sounds more amusing to people who speak German. [5]

In 2004, owing to the stolen signs and embarrassment over the name, a vote was held on changing the name, but the residents voted against doing so.

Coincidently there is a small municipality just over the border in Bavaria, Germany called Petting, which is a loanword meaning Foreplay in German.
