A map of the most offensively named places in the world

New, 79 comments

There's a place called Vagina in Russia, and The Cock of Arran in Scotland is said to be of particular interest to geologists. Both places are highlighted on an interactive world map that's perfect for fourteen-year-olds everywhere. Created by geotechnologist Gary Gale, the map lists rudely named locations across the globe, like Canada's Spread Eagle and Anus in the Philippines. Weirdly, an unusually high percentage of places, like Chinaman's Knob, Australia seem overly preoccupied with male genitalia. Users can only scroll around or adjust the zoom distance, but that shouldn't stop Gale's snigger-inducing creation from becoming a fun afternoon diversion.
