    What's In A Name?

    (England, Reuters) - A couple have been forced to move out of their house because of the shame caused by the name of their streetóButt Hole Road. Paul and Lisa Allott sold their bungalow in Conisbrough, England after living there for just 15 months, fed up with the constant leg-pulling. Taxis and pizza delivery men would fail to turn up, thinking their order was just a prank, and they grew tired with groups of youths posing for photos by the nearby street sign with their buttocks bared. "I like a laugh, but it was beyond a joke," Allott told the Sun newspaper.

    The truly funny thing about Intercourse, PA is that it is an Amish town. It is near Paradise and Bird In Hand, PA. They have a fantastic bakery that has the best Shoe Fly Pie going!
