The atlas of 'vaguely rude place names'
A self-professed geek has created an online atlas of the world's rudest place names.
Londoner Gary Gale collected the world's most amusingly puerile place names all on one website, reports the Daily Telegraph.
It contains hundreds of ludicrously immature road, town and village names, all plotted on an eye-catching map.
British contributions include Pratt's Bottom in Orpington, Andrews Knob in Cheshire, Wetwang in Yorkshire and Ringrash Road in Northern Ireland.
The US offers Hooker in Oklahoma, Climax in Colorado, and Mianus in Connecticut - which famously featured in Jackass: the Movie.
And then there's the Albanian village of Crap, the Algerian settlement of Tit, Anus in the Philippines and countless more examples.
Mr Gale, who describes himself as a "geo-technologist and self professed geek with a life", published his unusual atlas online at http://maps.geotastic.org/rude/.
"I've had a lifelong love affair with maps since discovering the Harry Beck map of the London Underground on the back of the London A-Z street atlas at an early age," he said.

Reminds me of the Inbetweeners Rude Place Names they did for Comic Relief. There was a place in Germany (or somewhere like that) called F**K in which its residents kept getting prank calls.
I came across in scotland called restawhileand bethankful..oh and a place called dull.
A PLACE called, i meant.
...wansnt Bridgend, was it? Lol!
Boring! They're really scraping for news.
Aww, only having a bit of a laugh, lighten up! ;-)
Would'nt it be brill if on the weather on the news they highlighted these places, It would make it much more interesting to watch.
great stuff! I knew Bell End was out there, but not N0b End! Algeria has a pair of T!ts, and Romania three Cl!ts :)) still a work in progress, though- what about Looe? or Brest? Clitheroe maybe...
sorry Brest is there.

A cheap way to make money. What next - the Dictionary of swear words around the world!! In poor taste I think.
