The Hole of Horcum is a real place too. It's not far from the Boggle
Hole.


There was a series with Richard Wilson (Victor Meldrew) a few years ago in
which he toured the country in various old cars. One programme was based in
the North York Moors and he visited the Hole of Horcum. At the end of the
programme when he was summing up, he referred to it as the Hole of Scrotum
and then quickly corrected himself.

There is also a place called Wombleton near Kirkbymoorside, fairly near the
Hole of Horcum. Would you believe that there is a recycling centre at
Wombleton?

in case you think I'm making it up.

That's the S****horpe effect. I had a correspondent in Brussels whose
surname was de Cock, and that flummoxed a lot of filters. And the
Country Park north of Cambridge had its website blocked because it
mentioned that one of things to see there was "Big Tits".

Although "Sandy, Beds." is a real place.

So is Sandy Balls a holiday site in the New Forest, my missus and her
brothers grew up there as their parents were on the staff.
That was decades ago ,in recent times the owners have gone all
prudish and made the name all one word a couple of years back.
http://www.sandyballs.co.uk/

The origin of the name came from a geographical feature of sand piles
that had pushed up above the ground surface.

Harwich Hoek Ferry used to have brochures for Sandy Balls, in the
1980s.

The Hole of Horcum is a real place too. It's not far from the Boggle
Hole.


If you venture overseas to Kentucky, you can go to Sugar Tits, Beaver
Lick, and Big Bone State Park. All within range of Cincinnati
Airport (which is in Ohio).


:-)

There are plenty more in England

When I sat on the committee that decided what to filter in email at my
last place of employ, there were lots of earnest discussions about such
things. My take was that we should be filtering what went *out* and
allow all non-spam in. I lost.

They once bounced an email from my mother because it contained the word
"*******". No, it wasn't referring to me.


I remember someone once enquiring on an ISP's support group where their
email had been bounced. It turned out that it included the phrase "via
Gravesend", which a stupid spam filter had equated to "viagra".

I used to work in Cambridge and lived in the city, then later in a
'modern village' NW of the city, but I don't remember any country
park. Pray enlighten me Roland.

I heard it as the Lee Kee Boot Company

I can't imagine that they are both correct.

While on the subject of Chinese, there used to be a Chinese take-away on
the Whitechapel Road in London. Its sign said

Fu Kin
Hot
Chinese food
To Take Away
