Peculiar.. Hmmm this one didn’t come easy. Peculiar children? Nah that’s been done! Got it, these are the top five amusing place and street names.
- Peculiar, Missouri. Town motto “where the odds are with you.”
- Hell, Michigan. Sounds too hot for my liking.
- Crackpot, North Yorkshire.
- Lower Swell, Gloucestershire. Near The World Outside HQ. And I know it’s infantile but every time I see the sign I have a little giggle. Upper Swell is a nice place as well but I’d give Slaughter a miss.
- Turkey Cock Lane, Colchester. This was one of favourites when I used to work in a call centre. We had to give address details to customers phoning in and it was hard to keep a straight face when explaining this address.
I like to credit my sources so thanks to Anglotopia for jogging my memory about Lower Swell, Wikipedia and my own memories of working in a call centre.
