Lowbrow



There is an article on the NY Times website about places in the UK with funny names. Not just funny names, but sophomorically funny names.

These include Crotch Crescent, Oxford; Titty Ho, Northamptonshire; Wetwang, East Yorkshire; Slutshole Lane, Norfolk; and Thong, Kent. And, in a country that delights in lavatory humor, particularly if the word “bottom” is involved, there is Pratts Bottom, in Kent, doubly cursed because “prat” is slang for buffoon.
The funniest towns I have ever been to are Intercourse, Pennsylvania and Ballingarry in Ireland. Anyone else have any?

I've driven by a town called Knob Lick, Missouri. All of the townsfolk have drymouths and cat-tongues.
