These UK town names are just all out WTF on every level

The United Kingdom is responsible for a lot of great things, such as the development of the language we speak today. Since then though, the cheeky buggers have taken great and hilarious liberties with their language in terms of slang, sayings and names.

Now don’t get us wrong, we absolutely adore the cute and quaint towns and villages of the UK, but some of their names are nothing short of unconventional, weird and yep, totally inappropriate...
