Yet ANOTHER "Folks, I Don't Make Up This Stuff!" Entry

"And I think to myself, what a wonderful world..."

Excerpts from the Wikipedia article:

"Dildo is a town on the southeastern Dildo Arm of Trinity Bay on the island of Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada."

[I suppose the exact meaning of "Dildo Arm" depends on whether you're left-handed or right-handed, eh?]

"The first [All Saints' Anglican Church] was built in 1878 by the people of Dildo. It was a simple structure that had no tower and was 30 feet (9.1 m) wide by 80 feet (24 m) long."

[No tower? Doesn't seem right, somehow.]

"This Church served the community until 1964 when the present (larger) building was constructed."

[Ah. So bigger is better.]

"Dildo offers picturesque scenery..."

[I'll just bet it does.]

"...several bed and breakfasts, eating establishments, the Dildo Museum interpretive centre..."

[Sign me up for a tour of that last one!]

"...the Historic Dildo Days celebration in August..."

[August? Damn! So sorry to have missed that!]

"South Dildo had the roadside attraction of a wooden life-size humpback whale head, however after many years it was destroyed at the beginning of the 2006-2007 winter."

[Hm. Too many ways to go with that one. Insert your own joke here!]

Thanks to "Subby" for pointing this out in the comments section of my previous post... and thanks for your time.

P.S. -- Next time around, I'll talk about this quaint country road in South Yorkshire...

No, no... I won't. The running joke ends here... pretty much.

  2. No tower? Hmm, doesn't seem right. Gosh, I'm glad I don't live on that road. "Life at Butt Hole Manor" sounds really stinky.
