Why yes, I am about twelve years old…
CRAPSTONE, England — When ordering things by telephone, Stewart Pearce tends to take a proactive approach to the inevitable question “What is your address?”
He lays it out straight, so there is no room for unpleasant confusion. “I say, ‘It’s spelled “crap,” as in crap,’ ” said Mr. Pearce, 61, who has lived in Crapstone, a one-shop country village in Devon, for decades.
As a timesaver, here are the other place names in the story, in order of appearance:
Titty Ho (my personal favorite)
Corfe Close (only a problem if your address ends in a 4)
Tumbledown Dick Road
Butt Hole Road
Of course, my own adopted state of Pennisylvania Pennsylvania has placed Blue Ball and Intercourse very close to one another. I wonder if there’s a shuttle bus.
