Butts Close

Would you live on a street called Butts Close?  What about Turkey Cock Lane, or Cock A-Dobby street?  You could save 20% in England if you don’t mind living on a street with an “embarrassing” name.

Here in America, embarrassment has less relevance. No one cares if you live on Divorce Court, Psycho Path, or Wong Way. Brits are obviously more culturally sensitive about their street names – but then why would they call a street by any of those names in the first place?

For even more interesting and yes, embarrassing, names of places, check out this link.  You may have to copy (Control C) and paste (Control V) the link into your browser.  And “No Snickering.”
