Look at these hilarious place names!
Here are definitely the funniest place names from around the world.
Brest, in Brittany, is a city that welcomes visitors in to her bosom and has a very special castle, the Château de Brest. Only the French would be passionate enough to start naming castles that way!
Poo Beach, Spain
If you’re feeling a bit down in the dumps, a trip to Poo Beach in Spain is sure to relieve your tired spirit, but don’t worry…. there aren’t actually on poos on the beach, or at least they say there isn’t!
Canada is full of great names for places, conception bay, Crotch Lake and many more could be on this list but Dildo won it for us!

Mount Wank, Germany
This was apparently named after the first person ever got to the top and was majorly disappointed……
This is actually much more beautiful than the name suggests!
This was very close to being the best on this whole list, and we would love to know where this name came from!
Brown Willy, United Kingdom
You’d think that with English being our native tongue, we’d be able to escape scot-free on a list of destinations with the rudest names. And yet, this one definitely wins it and even better yet… it’s in Cornwall!
A Toddler Enjoyed The Firemen After Locking Himself In The Car – Bude, Cornwall
BRANDON Green, an 18 month old toddler was happily sat in the car while his mother Kirsty, 27, was loading the car boot when Brandon locked the car with the keys inside!
The 18-month-old was having a whale of a time while his concerned mother and a group of firemen and local police worked on getting him out of the car which was parked at a supermarket in Bude, North Cornwall, UK.
Shoppers had come to the aide of Kirsty and she was happy to see the firemen turning up.
Brandon was over the moon as you can see from the photo above taken of him laughing and smiling at the firemen frantically trying to free the toddler.
All was well with and no one was in danger, the weather wasn’t hot so all was looking good, until Brandon found a choke hazard and began to put it in his mouth.
“That’s when I started to panic, because I thought, ‘Oh God, what if he chokes on it,’” Kristy told The Mirror.
That’s when Brandon’s fun came to an end when it was decided to break the window and pull him out to safety to avoid any further panicked moments.
His mother said as entertained as her son was by the entire incident, the firemen were equally entertained.
As always great work by the men in uniform.

Ancient Forests Revealed In Sand Of Cornwall Beaches
The recent spate of bad weather has revealed numerous ancient forests in several beaches throughout Cornwall & Devon. In Penzance, Geologists believe that remains of extensive forests that stretched across Mounts Bay some 4,000 – 6,000 years ago, were exposed after sand was ripped up by a series of storms that battered the Cornish coastline in the new year.
Remains of other ancient forests can also be seen on Portreath beach and Daymar Bay in Cornwall, aswell as Bigbury Bay in Devon. The storms not only revealed trunks of oak and pine, but also remains of hazel thickets, cob nuts and acorns that have been washed out of streams running across the beaches.
These ancient forests were growing around four or five thousand years ago when the climate was slightly warmer, and reveal evidence of changes as they were submerged with water as the sea level rose.
The stormy weather also uncovered a few more surprises throughout Cornwall and Devon. Wartime explosives and the remains of SS Belhem which sank at Northcott mount Nr Bude have been found, and the Royal Navy also had to remove an unexploded World War II device from Crow Point beach in Devon.
Elsewhere, iron age remains and Romano-British pottery have been found in cliffs and a ditch in Challaborough in south Devon. Tidal movements are expected to cover the ancient forests with sand yet again over the coming weeks.
