A suggestion for ABR Challenge 2017

I'll run this one up the flag pole to see if it floats...

For some reason the Welsh don't have any rude names? Or maybe the journalist doesn't speak Welsh ;)

Bonus points for foreign trips

It'd be much more fun if you gave double points for potentially rude place names in Europe to encourage everyone to spread their wings a bit more.

The Indie map isn't exhaustive, and part of the fun could be to find ones not on the map. A quick Google shows a few in the republic http://irishpost.co.uk/the-funniest-str ... lacenames/ and some up north as well http://theulsterfry.com/local-news/ulst ... ace-names/

This is genius!

I nearly got fired on my first day at my job for orange 13 years ago thanks to one of these. I was sat at a training PC with a map of the UK that was clickable (which was pretty cool back). The trainer asked us to look at random places and I clicked on a Scottish isle and the word Twatt filled my screen and would not go again. I'm still at the same firm and thank god that training dude believed it was a random mistake.

I was at Cockbridge a few weeks ago and the sign had stickers from other bikers on the back. It would be great if we all have a bag of little ABR stickers and stuck one to the back of the signs. Double points if you were the first to sticker one.
And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.

This one isn't on many list of funny place names.

Definitely not a place to go swimming

Sounds like a good idea to me, as you say finding other names would be part of the fun.
