Talking of altered roadsigns, TIL the answer to a 30 year old mystery - link.

Not rude, but that reminds me of a jolly moment years ago, when standing on the Station Road bridge across the river Ouse, in York, with another Forummer.
He: "What's this river called again?"
Me (leaning over the side and spotting a sign on the river bank but knowing better): "River Trips".

He honestly believed me for the longest part of one minute and never forgave me.

Link to a pdf that lists all UK place names that feature the word "cunt".

Good find, Bondee! Once upon a time, I knew quite a few people who would have loved to have written that paper.

Not all. I know of a Gropecunt Lane in Staffordshire that isn't listed.

I once heard that there is an area on European section that called as Grand Sex. Do not really know why they need to pick this name.

Hi BoysGreat - we do like sources for assertions here, so can you remember where you heard that?

Snopptorp - dicktown in Sweden is always a great one

Fittja - can be compared to plussy or cjunt (disclaimer as fitta is one of the rudest words in Swedish)

So, if someone said to a Swedish woman that her friend was 'fit', but that she was 'fitter', a terrible misunderstanding might occur?

Possible, but as long as those are not the only English words in the sentence you are probably fine! However the American way of over annunciating the suffix -er would be better as the way I and many others would say it in English is dangerously close to the Swedish variant.

There’s a town in Mongolia called Mörön. And of course there’s Moroni, the capital of the Comoros (as any serious quizzer knows).

Maybe these aren’t really rude, just quite interesting. A few more quite interesting ones (nothing rude):

Sibi, Pakistan
Sibu, Malaysia
Sibiu, Romania

Sibu is one of the places my Dad visited when he was involved in the Borneo conflict in 1965.
