How many readers just did a naughty word search in Google Maps?

I grew up near this particular Cock Lane and never found it rude/funny so maybe it’s more about childhood innocence than the non-proliferation of rude slang.

More stunning is the affordable housing crisis, when a semi-detached goes for $550,000

Dunno about Britain, but the US’s naughtiest is probably the house on Felch at Fountain in Ann Arbor.

Is that near the intersection of Cock & Balls?

There’s a Bell End car club, which is presumably restricted to Audi drivers.

Especially when it looks like a standard ex-council house, which will have been built to the lowest possible spec in the 1950s - i.e. no insulation of any sort and absolutely minimal heating, hot water, electrical outlets, etc.

Wagina Island looks good. Possible Google Maps prank? What are the odds of Wagina being next to Haycock? Just look at it.

Close enough to Britain… “The official name of the then British overseas territory was changed from “the British Solomon Islands Protectorate” to “Solomon Islands” in 1975. Self-government was achieved in 1976; independence was obtained two years later. Today, Solomon Islands is a constitutional monarchy with the Queen of Solomon Islands, currently Queen Elizabeth II, as its head of state. Manasseh Sogavare is the current prime minister.” -Wikipedia
