"I'll meet you by the Snot Bog!"

Sweden is a land of great natural beauty and strangely gross names. According to this article, near the town of Horsskog is a swampy area called Snormossen (Snot Bog).


There are places there named Köttsjön (Meat Lake), Kattsjärten (Cat's Butt), and Rumpsjön (Butt Lake). I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to dive into Butt Lake! There’s a lot of these types of places, like the Yellow Lake, Small Butt Lake and Big Butt Lake (Gula Röven, Lilla Röven, Stora Röven). Along these lines, the town of Mora used to be called Rövhålet (Anus).

Why? Never mind, I don’t want to know.

Ooh, for people who like to drink water, Pissholmen (Piss Island) is the place to go.

Finally, just the sounds of Äs, Middelfart and Horred makes me want to hide my passport!
