    The UK is full of rude place names. The North West has a Two Butt Lane and a Pincock, while Yorkshire is arguably worse, boasting an Upperthong.

    The publisher of the map assures these are all real UK places.

    South Wales includes such classics as Pwllypant, Cwm Farteg, and Bully-Hole Bottom.

    There is also a surprising number of place names that are also emotions (Seething, Corney, Lusty).
