Not this one I hope !
Not 100% certain that they mention it in that one!  :haha:  But there again I only listened to the first 14 minutes. I wouldn't be so obvious it was released in 2002 and is included in 67 places around the world that he has visited. To give you a clue the band name is a fruit flavoured kids party dessert.

Okay clearly to obscure . It also rhymes with belly and is wobbly. You get a slip of it in your Gin and T sometimes.

Admittedly, my bike isn't in the photo, but I think it's obvious that it's somewhere close.

You all seem like a rather childish, vulgar, and immature bunch*, so I suspect you may appreciate:

Brugges, Belgium

Should I add my contribution to this funny thread, I'd say that I come from a nice French town named:



that the river flowing through is the "Baïse" ("shag" / "feck"). Icing on the cake, I was born in Béziers whose inhabitants are called "Bittérois" (lovely pun which could be translated as "King of the dick")... lol

Nobody's perfect! :grin:

I'm delighted to see INCHBARE on the list. My brother and I used to giggle at that road sign when we were kids, as well as ARDO further north in Aberdeenshire.

Maybe ARDO is only funny when you're young...

As I was parked in the road it was a bit rushed! Cleaning the lens would be more use!
I'll just have to go out again, shame ;)

Cockshoot Close, Stonesfield, Oxfordshire



Trying to line up this shot with a couple of roadworkers vans in the way was ... interesting. I wasn't sure if they thought I was weird, or just checking up on them.

Tinkerbush Lane, Wantage, Oxfordshire



Must be close to Mr Piglumps Palace. He could have done this one himself.

How is it that almost all of these dodgy names are located by MartinW?

Is there a voyeuristic undertones in the locations that he travels to?

Maybe .....

But Pauljobr has found more of them than I have.

I tend to use it as an excuse for a ride.
