    Wink For the first time I have the pleasure to show you my arse



    This is how could have translated the words of a French TV presenter, if the translator hadn't known the content of what was to follow. The TV presenter was in fact going to introduce the audience to a small village near Cahors (South-West France) called "Montcuq", pronounced exactly like "mon cul", or "my arse" in French.

    I guess that the English equivalent would be "Maya's" (from the Spanish, Russian or Hindi female given name "Maya").

    -"Is that your shoes ?"
    - "No it's Maya's."

    - "Can I kiss you on the cheek ?"
    - "If you kiss Maya's first."

    Better still, there is another French town called Condom, in the same region of Midi-Pyrénées. And to push the pun even further, the local river is called "Baïse", which without the diaeresis (baise) means "f*ck" in French.

    Montculq and Condom are less than 100km apart from each other.

    Other unfortunate names in the same region include :

    - Baraqueville : "hovel town"
    - Decazeville : no meaning, but sounds a bit like a slang mix of decadent and occaz (for occasion => "second-hand")
    - Casteljaloux : "jealous castle"
    - Castelmoron : "moron castle", only funny for English speakers


    In another region, north of Avignon, there is a town called "Suze-la-Rousse", which sounds like "suck the red-haired (woman)" in French.

    Hahahaha.

    And what about these italian locality names:

    Belsedere (province of Siena) = "nice ass"
    Orgia (province of Siena again) = "orgy", of course
    Ramazzano le Pulci (province of Perugia) = "they swipe the fleas away"
    Po di Gnocca (province of Rovigo) = "a bit of pussy"

    There's a village in Canada, in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, called Dildo. Strange, but true. I've never been there, but I imagine the womenfolk tend to be a cheerful lot.

    In my dad's dialect they drop the o in the word culo. When he came to the United States in the 1970s, he really got a kick out of people using the word cool to describe things.
