The fantastic follow-up to 2005’s hit humour title RUDE BRITAIN, RUDE WORLD reveals 100 of the rudest place names in the world. From Fanny Bay in Australia to Dildo in Newfoundland via Wank in Bavaria, Windy Gap in Ireland and Condom in France, RUDE WORLD delves into the etymological and linguistic origins of each location’s name to uncover the fascinating reasons behind such apparently lewd places. Also featuring excellent photographs of the road signs proving the existence of each place, this book is laugh-out-loud funny and surprisingly interesting. Prepare yourself for the rudest world tour ever!
