The Lewes District Council in East Sussex, England, has just banned whores in their district, although they don't seem to mind seeing jugs every now and then. Actually they decided to ban Hoare Road because of the potential homonymic mixup with ladies of the night, but felt that Juggs Road was okay. In an effort to clean up the smut all around them, the Council has just enacted a measure to ban suggestive, rude or just unpleasant road names from the map. Among the banned names are Gasworks Road, Tip House and Coalpit Lane, all of which were deemed 'aesthetically unsuitable,' as well as 'names capable of deliberate misinterpretation,' like the aforementioned Hoare Road and Typple Avenue, Quare Street and Corfe Close. Juggs Road and Cockshut Road will inexplicably remain.

      The world is becoming and dumber and dumber place by the second. Who's the raging retrograde running the world?

      Maybe next they will start censoring car names too. First car name to be banned will be Tata of course.

      Londonderry sounds a lot like Dingleberry to me.

      I wonder if they'll ban flights to Bangkok?

      Best to keep these folks away from places like Toad Suck, Arkansas or Big Bone Lick, Kentucky. Google them, they actually exist. You can't make that stuff up.

      They would not like the name of a major road in SE Michigan "Big Beaver."
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yes, it's true. Big Beaver is exit 69. :D
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yes Exit 69, Big Beaver Road. I moved to Detroit for a few years after college and between BBR and passing by the town of Climax on 94, I thought Michigan would be the coolest state ever...... Oh how that's not true.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Ever notice that Big Beaver Road is at Exit 69 on I-75? No lie.

      East Sussex is not suggestive?
        • 6 Years Ago
        I guess they had to after having conversations like this:

        Grandma: Kiera, how was your time in Sussex?
        Dorothy: It was rather nice... I most enjoyed it next to Juggs Rd.
        Grandma: Good... I remember my days on Hoare Rd. Ahhhh... those were good times.
        Dorothy: Does Hoare go straight into Cockshut?
        Gradma: That particular intersection was the most enjoyable. Dorothy, you have to go there at one point... I know you'll love it!

        From now on we shall know it as East Susabstinence.

        What do you do in this case? This is the cross roads every man must face.
