Laughing at Johnny Foreigner
Yes, that’s right kids: Hard drugs make for the breakfast of champions. So help yourself to as much smack & crack as you want!
Anyway, if you don’t live in the UK, then I’m technically a foreigner as far as you’re concerned. Which is good, because it means you can notice all of the sort of things that just pass me by as just another part of the way it is here.
I was particularly impressed when Da Square Wheel Man over at the Bicycle Diaries devoted a whole post to English place names. Names like . . .
- East Breast
- Titty Ho
- Spanker Lane
- Crotch Crescent
That last one doesn’t seem particularly rude though - wonder why it’s on the map?
I’d like to add one more to the list - a village a few miles north of here: Shilbottle. Nothing particularly snigger-worthy about that you might think. Except some wag keeps crossing the ‘l’ on all the road signs to give it an entirely different name.
Anyone out there got local names to rival those on the list?
