Butt Hole Road is Archer's Way

That's why the cleric likes to go first. What? Sorry.

Residents on Conisbrough, South Yorkshire's Butt Hole Road got sick and tired of all the jokes, all the gags, and the bare bottoms displayed whenever tourists stopped by to take pictures or steal the street sign. So they paid over $500 to change it themselves - to Archer's Way, in reference to a nearby castle.

Apparently, the road was named for a communal water butt which once existed there. But residents were tired of dealing with the whole mess, saying many delivery people and other service providers sometimes simply refused to believe such a road even exists! There is already an online petition circulating to change the name back to Butt Hole Road.
