English Names Are Funny

Eleonora and I passed a pub today named The Famous Cock.

England is full of funny names like that. A quick review of a map revealed the following gems:

Crotch Crescent, Oxford
Titty Ho, Northamptonshire
Wetwang, East Yorkshire
Slutshole Lane, Norfolk
Thong, Kent
Pratts Bottom

Some delightful street names can also be discovered such as Hoare Road, Typple Avenue, Quare Street and Corfe Close. My favorite though is Tumbledown Dick Road in Oxfordshire.

Below are a couple I’ve had the pleasure of seeing:

  1. Hahaha! These are amazing! Just imagine having to tell your teacher your address is 2214 Butt Hole Road. That’s just too funny and strangely makes me want to move to Great Britain now more than ever before. Thanks for the laugh!
