I don’t mind admitting that I have a rather infantile sense of humor, so when I happen upon rude place names, I can’t help but giggle. It doesn’t matter whether they are downright rude enough to elicit a guffaw or a snort or two, or just bring a faint smile, finding humor in rude places names is just simple, harmless fun. This might be a peculiarly British-SOH-centric post, but come with me on a journey around the world to find some rude place names to bring a smile.
1. Poo, India
How would you like to live in Poo? I’m guessing that if you did, you would probably prefer the alternative spellings of Pooh or Puh, but whatever, it is still one of those rude place names that will make you smile. Despite its name, Poo is a lovely place known for its natural beauty and wealth of vineyards, apricot orchards and almond groves. There’s also a Poo in Asturias, Northern Spain and it has a beach. Fancy a day at Poo Beach anyone?
