Welcome To...















Apparently, people kept nicking their town signs.

So they had one carved into a ton of rock.

Now, (and this is just me talking), if I lived in Shitterton and kids kept nicking the signs, I would never replace them. Not ever.

This from the parish council chap:

"Ian Ventham, chairman of the parish council, said: "Every two or three years somebody comes along and nicks our sign because, clearly, Shitterton is amusing."

It fucking well is, Ian.

Renaming the town might have been cheaper.

And a lot more sensible.

LoL .... and very spooky! You'll find out why over at my place later ;-)

Sounds like a sign arms race. Someone will come along with a JCB and nick it just to piss them off and eventually leave face down for part of their rockery, and then the village will need to club together for a three ton rock. Eventually it'll be the size of a house and still some smart arse will sneak along in the middle of the night with some cement render and fill the fucking name in.

Is it Friday? ;-)

Apparently, the good folks of Brown Willy don't seem to be experiencing such problems ;-)

I'm phoning Alan Bleasdale, Trevor Phillips and the BBC.

AE, I'm nicking that idea about the rendering. I'm a big one for practical jokes and that will certainly be happening to some poor bastard around my way .... in the not too distant ;-)

Another classic! I'm really gonna have to put THAT post up that I've been saving. It's all soooo relevant ;-)

Don't forget Wank in Bavaria. We ex-pats who lived near there had a word for the natives - Bavarians.

I've got an Iron Knob. It's not a boast, just a town in South Australia.
