Racing Fans In Hysterics At Horse Called 'Perfect Fanny'

Punters were in hysterics when they spotted a horse called 'Perfect Fanny' racing last week.

Fans were getting ready to place their bets on the the 21.48 race at Turf Paradise, Phoenix, on 23 March, when they spotted the bizarre name.

Sadly, despite being the 2/5 favourite to win the race, it wasn't the perfect ending after all, with the horse being pipped to the post by 20/1 shot Coyster, while 50/1 outsider L D' Rado Goldrush took third.

The name quickly started doing the rounds on social media, with people joking about how it might sound in commentary.

One user said: "Can imagine the commentary.... Perfect Fanny comes hard and late under a powerful drive from Gonzalez."

But while the name in the UK might seem quite rude, in the US the word 'fanny' simply means bottom.

Pointing that fact out, one person said: "Fanny means ar** in America doesn't it."

A couple of years back, two men took their love of dirty words and innuendo to another level, embarking on a 2,000-mile trek to visit all the places in Britain with a rude name.

Andy and Magnus Tait, from Scotland, spent a six years of their lives planning out the mammoth journey - visiting streets, villages and towns with filthy-sounding monikers.

The pair visited charming destinations such as Upperthong, Cumwhinton, Fanny Street, Butthole Lane, Willey, Sandyballs, and even Titty Ho.

They also took time to stop off at Bellenden Gardens, Poundbottom, Cockermouth, Penistone, Butthole Bell End, The Knob, Lower Swell, Old Sodbury, Butcombe and Shaftesbury.

But that wasn't it either. The brothers also went to Shitterton, Lickfold, Fingringhoe, Slutshole Lane, Feltwell, Fanny Hands Lane, Scunthorpe, Rimswell and Wetwang.

All in, the trip took just four days to complete, and saw them trek right across Britain, stopping off at 34 signs to take some snaps.

Last year, the leader of a tiny town in Austria had had enough with being the butt of everyone's joke due to its name, and decided to change it.

Mayor Andrea Holzner revealed to Austrian broadcaster Oe24 that F***ing was to be renamed to Fugging from 1 January 2021.

"I can confirm that the village is being renamed. I really don't want to say anything more - we've had enough media frenzy about this in the past," she said.

The town, which only has a population of around 100 people, had had its namesake for nearly 1,000 years.

It managed to avoid ridicule for hundreds of years until the internet came around and people looking for dirty words in the most random places managed to make the town of F***ing go viral.
