Last summer I did a bicycle tour from Fucking in Germany to Petting in Austria. (I know most people normally do it the other way round)

On the way you can take a lot of funny pictures.

The white sign below is German and the English translation of the text is: Please - not so fast.

Are there other towns in Europe with English names that have a rude name, so that I can do more tours like that. By rude names I'm referring to names that are obscene, disrespectful or names that are violating a taboo. Ideally, the villages should be close to each other so that I can do a bike tour.

I tried to search more of these towns in Google maps by just trying out random offensive words. Obviously this is not a very good choice and I couldn't find any other village. What could I do instead? Where can I find resources that will help me to find bikeable offensive towns in Europe?

This is essentially a list question in its current form and cannot have 'one right answer'. Edit instead to ask for a resource that lists such towns and then perhaps this would be okay. – Ankur Banerjee Dec 7 '11 at 23:46

I don't think there are enough towns to fill a whole list, but I see the problem and I have edited my question. – RoflcoptrException Dec 7 '11 at 23:54

rude in what language? A word that in one language is rude can have a completely different meaning and pronunciation in another. – jwenting Dec 8 '11 at 6:30
    
I thought I have included it in the question, but obviously it is missing. I'm talking about English names. – RoflcoptrException Dec 8 '11 at 8:33

Searching Google for "rude place names" turned up this list, which has lots of entries for Europe.

This might be useful in conjunction with a traveling salesman solver, to compute an efficient route between several of the points.

+1 for mentioning that google is also a good resource for travel questions! – user141 Dec 8 '11 at 16:44
    
Why is Tös regarded offensive in that list? – Pekka 웃 Dec 8 '11 at 22:04
    
@Pekka: toss.urbanup.com/829451. (It's specifically British slang.) – Nate Eldredge Dec 8 '11 at 22:12
    
@Nate ahhh, I didn't make that connection. Thanks. – Pekka 웃 Dec 8 '11 at 22:13

What immediately sprang to mind was not as rude as your opening question, but will still upset people in the Bible Belt of the US and probably a few other people too I suppose:

Hell, Norway

just for the hell of it

Is there a highway to Hell ? – Josay Dec 9 '11 at 15:35

@Josay: Route E6, runs through Hell. – hammar Apr 17 '12 at 12:33

Well, this came up on reddit today and it was perfectly relevant. Not necessarily 'offensive' but if you're trying to do a progressive roadtrip with a theme, here are the stepsenter image description here

If you go to the comments thread on reddit there are some other similarly themed towns that people suggest in Europe.

Or, if you're conservative and want to make the trip a whole lot longer, swap the final two. – gerrit Sep 13 '15 at 14:06
