Ghanaian Parliament Collapses Into Giggles Over Village Names

Over the years in the UK, we have sniggered at the names of some of our towns and villages that are either innuendo ridden, or just plain daft. Villages with names along the lines of Soggy Bottom, or a particular town in Cumbria that suggests a particular sexual act.
But it seems that the UK has had it light in comparison to some other countries. This story from Ghana is certainly eye popping in terms of names given to villages.  The next time I hear someone snigger about the names of certain towns and villages, instead of sighing with annoyance because I have heard it so many times, I will probably think "Well, we are far from alone!"
