A shortlist

Submitted by on May 26, 2010 – 9:44 am5 Comments

We have already decided we all like lists, so here’s a short list, or a shortlist if you will, of three place names that have made me laugh recently. I didn’t LOL though, I’m 37.

Keighley – once upon a time in the 1980s, a fat Scottish man outraged local sensibilities with some truly terrible records. Rumour has it he returned to Yorkshire many years later, full of remorse. However, it was apparently too late for Fish to say he was sorry and the natives had no sympathy for his rare telephone phobia. Fucking hell, that is poor.

Harrow – never have I been to Wembley without the urge to make the same vaguely racist joke about Chinese people in London. It’s not funny in the slightest, yet it never fails to make me laugh. This could be the worst list ever on this young website.

Fanny Hands Lane – this is without doubt one of my favourite places. I was driving back from the East Coast a while back and passed the best named street in England, nay the world, in Lincolnshire. I defy anybody not to be amused by a road called Fanny Hands Lane. Imagine living there, it would be fantastic, if unhygienic.

Does the football start again soon?
