Vaguely Rude Place Names Of The World

From Shag Point, New Zealand, to Humptulips, Washington state, this map fills you in on rude-sounding place names. Quite a few of them are due to language differences, and others are due to the changing meanings of words over time. Still fun to know! I personally think Newfoundland and Nova Scotia are under-represented, considering the many great place names in those provinces. Click on a flag at the link to bring up information on each place.

This map is great but it takes all the fun out of those, "I once knew a girl from Nantucket" limericks.

Back in grade school, our teacher had to hide the "J" encyclopedia from us because we sat around laughing at the map of Japan with Fukuoka, Fukahoma etc
