So this weekend I had to work in Bristol (and ladies be reassured,there is nothing like a good set of Bristols to work with).
I got to visit the Christmas Steps,There-and-Back-Again Lane,Made for Ever and of course couldn't resist the thrill of the Willy Wicket*

My sister and I were once looking at a map of the Cornwall area, and laughed for ten minutes when we came across a town called Splatt.

I've been to the town of Dildo here in Newfoundland. It's near Conception Bay. And there's also Come by Chance which is near Goobies.

There is a town called Muff in Ireland. And they have a diving school.
