Villagers Opt to Keep Cowshit Lane

LONDON (Reuters) - It is not the sort of address most people would want but a group of English villagers has turned down a proposal to rename Cowshit Lane.

The name stirred controversy when the village of Golant in southwest England decided to have a map drawn up for visitors.

``I live there and I have no objection to the name,'' local council chairman Alistair Barr was quoted as saying by the Times newspaper Friday.

``Some others have suggested renaming it Cowslip Lane, which I don't agree with.''

Douglas Cooper, Barr's predecessor as chairman, staid: ``I only wish I lived there because I could put it on my headed notepaper.''

Frozen or dehydrated cow-pies make pretty good frisbees out on the ranch when nothing else is available!

England has some delightfully named towns. Rather liked Leatherhead. And just across the border in Wales we resided for a short time in a place called Mold. Also lived in Isreal a while and looked at an apartment on a street named B'ershit. Just couldn't face putting that on the stationary!
