I piss myself laughing everytime I see it on the television weather charts.

Ha ha ho ho. Or am I just warped?

Has anyone else driven along Bald Knob Road?

YES! I have. I knew there was another hilarious name up there somewhere but couldn't remember it - thank you for posting it! grin Went along it, or saw it anyway when we visited Maleny.

Clitheroe in Lancashire. I'd love to meet the clit heroe, that would make my day!

What about Quimper, in France?

On the island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean, one of the larger towns is called Tampon

Sounds like right bloody hole if you ask me!

There's a Nunney Castle in the Cheshire area, always gave the kids a laugh when they were little.

Oops perhaps Somerset not Cheshire.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I've just found Sandy Balls in Hampshire. It might be on here already, but... LOLOLOLOL.....

And there is Shag Rock on S Georgia (nearish to The Falklands). And who can pass by Spankers Hill Wood in Richmond Park without sniggering? Ho ho! *childish face*
