They used to have labs/offices <profanity filterstrasse> Maybe they've moved or something now, I dont work in that field anymore so wouldnt know. The address was:

Central Laboratory of the Blood Transfusion Service of the Swiss Red Cross, *****dorfstrasse 10, CH-3000 Bern 22, Switzerland

Anyhow, away from placenames, but thinking of 4 Corfe Close, go into a supermarket and pick yourself up a packet of 4 King Cup Cakes. In fact, go into one and shout loudly to a friend, across the aisle, to pick you some up.

I've walked up and sat on Lord Hereford's Knob.

And I've pi$$ed on it.

I was tempted to camp and shag the girlfriend on it as well.

Hopefully this will get past the swear filter (it's not that rude, but a delightful old word); in Upton-upon-Severn in Worcestershire there is a Minge Lane.

On an earlier one: A mate who lives in Switzerland told me about w a n k d o r f, to which another mate replied: "Surely only the queen would pronounce it like that."
