Warning: Foul language?

Article on "Brits driving Austrians bonkers over rude village name"

Even funnier when you type the name into mapquest, and watch what comes up in the sponsored ads.

The Mapquest thing is just funny because the ads would be innocent with any other town name.

There's an "Outside U.S. & Canada" in the "Maps" section (next to the title, actually). Click on that and then it will late you choose the country you want.

For some reason, I found "Extended Stay Hotels" to be the funniest of the various ads that came up on Mapquest.

Well, the "schools" one was pretty disturbing, I think. Not sure about the funniest though. [Smile]
