Turn Left At Butt Hole Road

NYT.com’s most e-mailed story right now is an amusing survey of completely ridiculous names for town and roads across Britain.  My favorites:

Spankerlane

Crotch Crescent

Tumbledown Dick Road  (Yes, seriously.)

Full read here.  And yes, someone made books for your coffee table: Rude Britain and Rude UK.  (X-mas 2009!)

Related: I drove through a town in Pennsylvania once that, if you look quickly, appeared to be “Mansasses.”  It led to endless jokes about “When were we last in Mansasses?” and “We should go for a ride in Mansasses” and “Mmm I just need some Mansasses.”   Good times.
