    Who was Betty Swollocks? It was a racehorse. Jenny Pitman, in the early 90s tried to name 3 horses. The names suggested by Jenny were rejected by the Jockey Club as those names had already been registered; it did not matter that those horses were long dead. Jenny then registered her 3 horses as 'Betty Swollocks', Joe Blob' and Mary Hinge.
    See section a, horse number 5 - refers to Mary Hinge

    I think Bangkok or Kokbang would be a cool name.

    The village shop in Wellington in Herefordshire is called "Betty Swollocks". True :blush:.

    Slightly OT, but the same reversal of letters.
    We used to occasionally amuse ourselves by reversing the first letters of two words to make summat rude.
    One guy came running in and said come and look at this one :blush::biggrin:

    Outside was a lorry....owned by Booker Fitch

    Similar to gbb
    As a kid, I often saw a shopfitters van and read it as 'Shoplifters' and a scruffy lorry that had 'Welding Supplies' that I saw as 'wedding'
    My sister used to think that the church near our local baths was the Cavalry Church!

    I once went into a camera shop and asked to look at the latest ... Mintola SLR!

    The guy in the shop put me right once he'd stopped laughing. :blush:

    my next cat is going to be named Duck Fat. Think of the fun I'll have with the neighbours, shouting out in the evening.

    You could call it 'Lard' - it is a 'cooking fat'
