If you want a laugh get a map of Great Britain and look up all the unfortunate place names – which can knock thousands off the value of a house.

Here in the UK you can reside in Minge Lane or have friends in Bell End, but round the world you can get into real trouble with even more names from the fanciful, to the downright rude.

 

Worcestershire,. Sauce!

Poo

Poo is a Spanish seaside resort which boasts a wonderful beach and there’s no doubt it’s where US rapper Mc Pooh goes on his holidays.

 

If you want a Poo seaside holiday this is the place to go in Spain!

Wank

Okay it’s pronounced ‘Vank,’ but this little town in Germany has a really unfortunate name. It’s in Partenkirchen and the local mayor gets the joke, but only up to a point. The village is named after the local Wank mountain and it’s no doubt a place of refuge for the local hero Andrea Wank, the ski jumper who started at a age 12. Ski jumping that is.

 

NObody admits to living here, but they are big on winter sports.

Intercourse

Well we hope that Andreas Wank never passes through Intercourse Pennsylvania, because its an Amish community and they don’t get the modern obsession with ski jumping!

 

Well you'll want to drop by Intercourse, Ohio. Named by the Amish community to honour social dialogue.

F**king

This name stems from the Old German for the word ‘people’ and no doubt s residents from Wank travel to Austria to see what all the fuss is about. It makes the locals totally nuts that tourists come from miles away to have their picture taken with the F**king sign.  We would show you a photo but it’s too rude!

 

 Climax

Well once you’ve been to Wank and tried that bit of Austria, then you should head off to Climax. It’s a place in Georgia, where they have their own volunteer fire department with a big red truck.

Well we have almost exhausted this line of humour, but one last joke place name to go.

Arsoli

For those who still ant to see more then it’s Arsoli for you. This town is just about an hour’s drive from Rome and if you’ve ever driven in Italy you’ll think that most of the drivers hail from there. Enjoy!
