It’s Pronounced “PENNIS-tun”

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:

Ugley
East Breast
North Piddle
Spanker Lane
Crotch Crescent
Titty Ho (my personal favorite)
Wetwang
Slutshole Lane
Thong
Pratts Bottom
Penistone
Gaswork Road
Hoare Road
Typple Avenue
Quare Street
Corfe Close (only a problem if your address ends in a 4)
Tumbledown Dick Road
Butt Hole Road
Horrabridge

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.

    I want to attend football game between the two local high schools. The cheers could be priceless.
