Gary Gale is a geo technologist, a geographer – a “self professed geek with a life”. Hailing from London, his realm of geekdom centers around maps.
His “Vaguely Rude Place Names of the World” exhibits his geek-level passion for cartography in having collated some of the world’s cities that have rather…amusing names. At least in English – and, ironically, there seems to be quite a concentration of these places in England – Butthole Lane, Cocks, and Wetwang are just a few ones I’ve selected at random.
One of my favourites is in Russia though – the town of Vagina. Classic.
