I walked into a local souvenir shop and asking for some “Fucking postcards” and the lady at the cash desk smiled warmly. With a sparkle in her eye she guided me over to a white bookcase. “These are the Fucking postcards right here” she beamed.
Yes, that’s right, there’s a town called Fucking and this woman has been a Fuckite? Fuckonian? all her life.
There are some parts of the world where names take on a whole new meaning. Many of the names you are about to see have housed childhood dreams, celebrated birthdays, seen its first kiss, safeguarded its inhabitants, although their names would place them at the opposing end of the puppy dogs and ice-cream spectrum. Names that when spoken elicit some of the dirtiest and most wrong imagery. However, such places are loved regardless of however hilarious or fowl a name it bares.
And, yes, all of these places are actual places. Seriously.
There are many names that have missed the list so please leave a comment with your favourite rude or hilarious town names from around the world:
Allanstank – Aberdeen, Scotland
Bare Down Yonder – Cornwall, UK
Balls Falls – Ontario, Canada
Ham, near Sandwich – Kent, UK
torrential tears. I’d love to hear some more hilarious names of places.
Please add to the list!
