No fellow Queenzoners I'm not being lazy and 'cutting and pasting' some dubious link to a dodgy website that makes it easy.

I was flicking through a road map today and came across an arena of Bolton which goes by the name of Nob End. No I didn't believe it either. But it exists.

It would certainly make taxi journeys more interesting. As opposed to the usual 'been busy' or 'what time do you finish?' you can call the driver a nob end and not get thrown out.

'Where to Sir?'*
'Nob End.'

Anybody else live in a daftly named place?

*Only expect to be called Sir if your a knight of the realm and all that.

Kentucky is pretty bad. There is Pig's Knuckle, KY.

Here in Washington: George, Washington (however, it was named after the founder's dog, not the ol' man).

America's is full of them. Isn't there a Hell, Michigan and North Pole, Alaska?

It's been all over the local Maryland news that a street in Columbia, MD, USA is called Satan lane or court, which when the street builder made it decades ago, was an error, but they never ever fixed it.

The council people petitioned to change it, I forget to what, and they just got it renamed.

There is a place called "Canada" just north of the states, while the name is not freaky, the people sure are.

A picture of one of those signs is actually on the inner sleeve of one of Paul Young's records.
What's also funny is, that the town has to spend more money on replacing the signs than any other town, since the signs are frequently stolen by tourists. :)
