Your map to reaching Climax

© The Daily Telegraph | 15 February, 2013 02:25

Most of us have heard of Titicaca, the high-altitude lake that straddles Peru and Bolivia, and the prominent Breton port of Brest. But how many people knew about the Philippine town of Anus, the Cambridgeshire hamlet called Six Mile Bottom, or the Indonesian settlement of Semen?

Now, thanks to the meticulous research of Londoner Gary Gale - a "geo-technologist and self- professed geek with a life" - all the world's most amusingly puerile place names can be found on one giggle-inducing website. Gale's creation - Vaguely Rude Place Names of the World - contains hundreds of ludicrously immature road, town and village names, all plotted on an eye-catching map.

Britain's funniest include Pratt's Bottom in Orpington, Andrews Knob in Cheshire, Wetwang in Yorkshire and Ringrash Road in Northern Ireland.

There's Climax in Colorado, Mianus in Connecticut, the Albanian village of Crap, the Algerian settlement of Tit, and countless more examples too rude to repeat.

The site contain's two of Gale's great loves - maps and toilet humour.
