THONG.

 

And a few signposts that read

Sign outside cemetary = Elderly people.

I just love UK village names - Six Mile Bottom is my favourite, I have always wanted to live there but failing that I would give Nempnett Thrubwell a go. On our trip we visited Catbrain, Catcombe Burtle and Catcliffe - a definite feline trend coming through there.

:biglaugh: Well here is a link to some signs that were placed in Langwarrin, Victoria overnight a few months back, VIC Roads were not amused and neither were the elderly residents who took offence. Leader News: Melbourne community news

There'a place called Hell in the USA, but I can't remember where. And Hell's Kitchen is in New York (it's also known as "Clinton and Midtown West", but that doesn't have the same ring to it somehow)

 

And how about "Wetwang" in York???!!!
