There seems to be quite a few rude but interesting place names in the world

One's i know of in Scotland are: a town near Inverness called Dyke (the cold version of Lesbos ) and in Perthshire there is fanny hill and fanny burn. :rolleyes: Makes you wonder what's going on in a person's head when they're choosing place names.

Fanny Burn!! Not sure what's more disturbing SIAA, the fact that somebody thought of that name or the fact that you know of it!? Have you ever visited any of your amusing place names? Actualy, please don't answer that!! :rolleyes: Is there not a place called Wet Beaver somewhere? I think it's in America.

Amanzimtoti - KwaZulu Natal
Oh yeah I did. Found it right away...as did I also find Amazon...I mean Amanzimtoti...
Now I have to imagine the accent you all have down your way...is there one, and very different from capetown?
I need more sa places to look up....having a blast...only thing is, I did one quick search...$2,500 for a RT ticket to KwaZulu Natal or Gautenug.

I'm sure a Wet Beaver is out there someplace...will scour the maps for you..

ETA: Found it...There's a Wet Beaver Wilderness in Arizona, and oh yes, the Apache Maid Trail goes right thur it.

Of course while googling the above...several name place web sites turned up...from them some new favs are Dildo, Newfoundland; Climax, Saskatchewan (Sign on way out of town says "Come again soon); Twatt, Orkney, UK; Intercourse, Pennslyvania; Shag Island in the Indian Ocean...; Boob Creek, Alaska...anyway, you get the point...see what you can find when you're looking for Wet Beaver?

Oh yes, you can pick a Capetonian from a crowd. Well... normally you'll find them in their own crowd, they're very cliquey people. Don't like to mix with people from other provinces, what with them living in the Chosen province and all. The rest of the people all sound quite normal. The only time accents come into play is because of our 11 official languages, so you'll normally pick up accents when someone is not speaking in their mother tongue. There is a strong accent when an Afrikaans person is speaking in English and vice versa. Black Africans also have very strong accents when they speak in English, sometimes it's difficult to follow - for instance "bird" would be pronounced as "bed", etc.

Look up Stellenbosch. I lived there for a year... It was amazing.

Oh yeah, Stellenbosch looks nice...wine country...next time I'm at Trader Joe's (yuppie market where every item is an impluse item, but with major and reasonable wine selection including wines from sa) I'll have to pick me up some SA reds...
so the Capies are stuck up huh. Well the set up of the town does look rather spectacluar what with that ring of mountains backing the town up to the sea and keeping it from spreading forever like we have in LA (can drive for 3 hours and still be in city).
