I'll see your Lickey End (so to speak, in a poker sense) and raise you....

"Where do you live?"
"Erm, well..."

Not rude, but this one always raises a smile:

Don't forget Bell End as well just a few miles away.

It's well known round these parts that Penistone is pronounced "Penis-town"

On my JoGLE last year, we went through,
"Cocklake"
I was laughing for the next 100miles!

Plus while skiing in Aspen a few years back, there was a lift and a hill called "Sam's Knob"
There was actually a guy with us on the trip called Sam.
I kid you not!
That provided ENDLESS hilarity!
(Plus,,,we all got to have a ride on it and then slide down it! The lift and ski slope you dirty people!,,

You can see Lord Hereford's knob from Hay on Way, and towards Woebley you pass The Lady Gardens. There is a wonderfully named valley in Dorset called Scratchy Bottom Sad

I once had to make a phone call to the post office at Twatt, the postmistress was not impressed and told me rather promptly and dryly "It's pronounced "Twart".

The bosses were also unimpressed that I was shouting across the office that I had Twatt on the phone.
