Sometimes the world is just too serious, never in these places though! (WARNING: contains immaturity and terms which some readers may find awkward to explain.)

  • Foggy Bottom, Washington (USA)
    Foggy Bottom, Washington (USA)

    We're starting our list on a fairly tame one here. Foggy Bottom is actually one of the oldest neighborhoods in Washington, D.C, built in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

  • Shitterton, UK
    Shitterton, UK

    This little hamlet in Dorset, England, has attracted worldwide attention for its name, which dates back at least a thousand years and means "farmstead on the stream used as an open sewer". Yep, it's easy to see why people found it funny!

  • Dildo, Canada
    Dildo, Canada

    Supposedly this town got its name from the phallus-shaped pin stuck in the edging of a row boat to act as a pivot for the oar... but we're not sure we believe you Canada!

  • Pee Pee Township, Ohio (USA)
    Pee Pee Township, Ohio (USA)

    Located in the heart of Pike County, Pee Pee was named after the Pee Pee River, a name derived from the initials of an Irish settler, presumably nothing to do with what's in its waters...

  • Wank, Germany
    Wank, Germany

    Not wanting to be overshadowed by other countries' efforts, southern Germany is home to a town called Wank. If you make your way there, you can visit the town's high summit and take in leisure activities "on the Wank".


The world is a place of amazing natural beauty and phenomena. Part of that has to be the hilariously rude and inappropriate names that people have accidentally given to their homes over time. This article promises to brighten your day!
