A Sad, Sad Day. Butt Hole Road Is Now Archers Way

Recommended Posts

Daily Mail 26.05.2009 - link

Residents of 'Butt Hole Road' club together to change street's unfortunate name

In the end, the constant jokes were just too much to take for the long-suffering residents of Butt Hole Road.

Groups of youths used to visit the street and bare their backsides for photographs while many delivery firms simply

refused to believe it existed.

And coachloads of amused American tourists frequently turned up to view the sign after it appeared in a US book.

And so despairing households in the suburban street in Conisbrough, South Yorkshire, decided that the road's name simply

had to change.

Housesprices on that road are probably up 25% overnight.

They should have plumped for Admirals Way, or similar, it would have added even more Kudos.

I once watched a show with Germaine Greer discussing a certain rather rude word.

She explained the origin of 'Grape Lane' in London.

Very interesting. ;)

Sad indeed, unintentionally suggestive names of anything or anywhere are IMO essential to the smutty and hilarious fabric of our nation.

They should have renamed it Arsehole Way, instead of Archers Way.

Major kudos! :lol:

Very good. Although the link below is to the best street name in the UK - ever.

The best thing ? There is nothing unintentional about it.

It's exactly what it says on the tin. :lol:

Grape Lane

Surely naming a road after Jeffery Archer would reduce the desirable property in it?

I'd prefer butt hole road.

That reminds me of an old joke about Jeffery Archer needing an ars3hole transpant...

but the ars3hole rejected him

The usage of the word “butt” was probably a reference to the area being used for archery in times gone by.

I think it’s a shame they gave way on the name. The best way to protect the luxury of the ignorant and stupid to do what they do [and I believe this luxury should be protected because I do a lot of it] is not to give way in the face of it.

Going by the GropeC**t example, doesn't this mean that the road was once used for cottaging?

Perhaps they should have renamed it 'Back Passage'

Here's the entrance to Pattaya's most debauched street.

According to the locals the 'l' is pronounced as an 'n'

Maybe at some point in it’s course the road pierced the line of butts. I can just see Will Scarlet mincing along it trying to attract the attention of Little John as Friar Tuck made eyes at him over a quiver. As for what the rest of the merry men would be getting up to in the bushes of Sherwood Forest, maybe best left never said.

I always did feel there was a kind of melancholy and forlorn subtext to the Maid Marian character. Maybe now the scales are falling from my eyes.

Grape Lane

"Gropecunt, the earliest known use of which is in about 1230, appears to have been derived as a compound of the words "grope" and "****". "

Appears to have been? No shit, sherlock... :lol:

There is a "Butts Lane" in Oxford. There is also a road called "Crotch Crescent".

If you draw a line between the two, you will notice a development about halfway along the line known as "Rimmer Close".

Deliberate?
