Cockfosters

When the going gets tough, laugh at the names of tube stations on the London Underground, like: Cockfosters.

I shit you not. It's near Harringay.

I feel like just spelling it "humour" makes the claim for you. Since I spell it, "humor," I think I'm actually required to laugh at this, which I did, so all's to the good.

pistols - You can laugh at all of Canada then, even more than you (and much of the world) likely already do[es], because we spell it like that there, too. I'll continue to laugh at the prospect of "cockfostering".

LOVE IT! I'm ALL about finding stuff like this - nothing proves you can't grow up from 15 years old like this, right?? Yesterday, I found a screwdriver yesterday called "Stubby" and cracked up... I'm always on the look-out for twisted and perverted signs and products, etc. Hope you are doing GREAT!!!! :)

You'd LOVE it here then! Cockfosters is the end of the line, so they announce it many times over on the tube, in a snooty accent at that.

And I just noted that it's very close to Hairy 'n'gay.

When I was in London and I heard the train announcement for Cockfosters, I turned my head toward my friend and we laughed. Yes, we were juvenile 28 and 26 year olds.
