mandoleer BS: Strange/funny/odd names of towns/cities (118* d) RE: BS: Strange/funny/odd names of towns/cities 23 May 05


In Shropshire, there's Knockin - and there IS a shop there.....
A bit further south, more of a village and sounding like a disease of sheep, is Wyre Piddle. Nearish to which is Ab Lench.
A cousin of mine (and former duo partner) moved from Penge to Crawley to Kleindottingen to Manalappan to Snohomish. Seems settled there, fortunately. Never believed in Penge or Crawley until I visited her there.
There's an English town whose name doesn't seem unusual until you try typing it on certain very well protected chat rooms. A chap got booted three times before a friend of mine (who told me this tale) suggested that he spell it with a k. So he typed in Skunthorpe, and all was well....
