10 Suggestive Names of Real Locations Worldwide — Part 7: Bodily Functions Version

Have you ever been to a place somewhere in this wonderful world in which we live which has a name that seems suggestive — or perhaps less than wholesome? In locations outside of the country where you are based, the names of locations may seem to have a different meaning to you than the actual origin — but when those strange names are found in the same country as yours, they may tend to have you scratching your head.

10 Suggestive Names of Real Locations Worldwide — Part 7: Bodily Functions Version

This article is the seventh in a series which give examples of suggestive names of real locations around the world; and as a form of proof that they actually exist, an interactive Google map is included with each entry — along with a brief description of the highlighted location — and the main focus of this article is bodily functions.

Without further ado, let us begin and have this article rip with a blast — and the locations are listed in this article in alphabetical order…

1. Crapo, Maryland, United States

Crapo — which is derived from the French word crapaud, which translates into the word toad in English — is an unincorporated community which is located along Lakesville-Crapo Road on the east bank of the Honga River near Chesapeake Bay in the southern part of Dorchester County in southern Maryland. If you want to hop on over there, note that this information has been verified and not just a bunch of Crapo-la. Just don’t order the frogs legs if you happen to find yourself in a restaurant.

2. Honaunau-Napoopoo, Hawaii, United States

Located on a lava shelf which dips into the Pacific Ocean in the western part of Hawaii County — which is more popularly known as the Big Island of Hawaii — Honaunau-Napoopoo is just south of where captain James Cook was killed. The area is known for its national historic park, which was once a sanctuary for lawbreakers in ancient times. Judging by the sound of the name, the law they apparently broke was the one to maintain constipation and not commit defecation under any circumstance — especially if you suffer from diarrhea which expels like hot lava.

3. Kaka, Arizona, United States

Not much information is known about Kaka, which is remotely located in Maricopa County in southern Arizona approximately halfway between Phoenix and the border which the United States shares with Mexico — but perhaps it is in close enough proximity for those who drink water there to risk contracting what is colloquially known as Montezuma’s Revenge.

4. Load, Kentucky, United States

Get a Load of this unincorporated community in Greenup County in northeastern Kentucky approximately halfway between Cincinnati in Ohio and Charleston in West Virginia. That they have brick houses in Load has not been verified. As one pastor might say during a service in a local church, “Praise that Load!”

5. Mashpee, Massachusetts, United States

Mashpee is located in Barnstable County on Cape Cod in southeastern Massachusetts; so you have plenty to do if you decide to visit: whale watching, boating, hiking, seal watching, museums, or simply laying out on one of the numerous beaches are only a fraction of the activities with which you can keep busy. The name is derived from the indigenous native American translation for either great water or the greater cove — although drinking too much of that “great water” might have also led to the name, which brings an image of a person whose legs are crossed while standing to prevent an accident from happening.

6. Middelfart, Denmark

Speaking of accidents, you would not be faulted for gambling on this Middelfart, for you will not lose in this municipality on the island of Funen in central Denmark. The name is derived from the Danish words for middle way and not from the digestive result of consuming the local cuisine; so enjoy the official football team and the landmarks in this town, which is located approximately 103 kilometers south of Aarhus — which is not in the middle of our street, as that would be Madness. If you rent a car, ensure that its tires are not flatulent.

7. Pee Dee, North Carolina, United States

Although a part of Anson County in North Carolina is known as Pee Dee, this unincorporated community is located in southwestern Montgomery County in the south central part of the same state east of the Pee Dee River — as well as approximately 52 miles east of Charlotte — and was named for the indigenous people with the same name. Urine luck, as that is pretty darn good information to know.

8. Pee Pee Township, Ohio, United States

Pee Pee Township is one of the fourteen townships of Pike County in southern Ohio which is located approximately halfway between Cincinnati in Ohio and Parkersburg in West Virginia. Although this township could have had a bladder name, one would think that the number one topic for discussion of its residents is to relieve themselves of that name rather than hold it in — but a streaming service has apparently not yet been found to aim to leak the information to execute that directive. Perhaps Wizz Air should consider implementing service to its closest airport.

9. Skiddy, Kansas, United States

Founded in 1870, this unincorporated community in Morris County in northeaster Kansas was named after a railroad magnate named Francis Skiddy and not after what can be found on the surface in the bowl of a toilet when…well…you know…the slick poo that one may leave in it. We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto, after reading that paragraph…

10. Slickpoo, Idaho, United States

…and just in time for the final entry of this article is — what else — Slickpoo, which is an unincorporated community located along Mission Creek in Lewis County in the northern part of Idaho. I have been unable to confirm reports that this community was founded by Josiah Slickpoo — but I will just let this one slip out anyway. I know, that stinks — but this entry left me flushed.


If while reading this article you were so pooped about thinking that so many more entries were missing, urine luck to know that dozens more examples of locations with suggestive names will be considered for future articles here at The Gate — but in the meantime, please feel free to offer suggestions of your own in the Comments section below.

Anyway, I am relieved to have let it all out in this article — but if you have not had enough in the meantime, please be sure to read the other articles in this series:
