There are always some people who gets offended by everything, but is the forum's auto censor skin any thicker?

Here are some real locations, but since the WG does not understand Finnish I help them and try to translate them to English.

I have a feeling that this ain't going to end well. 

 

Hassis, Hash.

Helvetti, Hell.

Hevonperse, Horse's [edited].

Horo, Hoe.

Huoranpelto, Whore's field.

Hätäpaskanlähde, Emergency crapspring.

Kullivaara, [edited]danger.

Kusipää, Pisshead (Dickhead if swearing).

Muorinperse, Grandma's [edited].

Pieru, Fart.

Pöljä, Fool.

Terskanperä, Glans' tail end (rear or butt is ok too).

Tissisaaret, Tit islands (Not the bird).

Varvi, Quickie.

Vittulampi, Cuntpond.

Viheltävän vitun aapa, Whistling [edited]'s swamp.

 

 

Edit: Just what I expected. Unnecessary censorship.

Well quite because the forum is so much worse because you can’t use English translations of some Finnish placenames.

I just wanted to try for science.

Translating names is unnecessary anyway.

As a Fin I assume you somewhat know Swedish so here you got some of the "best" Swedish city names:

https://www.listor.s...gaste-ortsnamn/

 

Translating some of them to English would result in a quite a quick edit I would assume, but to give you a sample:

Mensträsk - Menstruationswamp and yes this is the official name for that city.

All of those listed, yet Oulu didn't get a mention. Every civilized man knows it is a Paska Kaupunni.

Oulu is now "richest" city, but we can't say it.

I knew someone from there, and they insisted on pronouncing it with an 'm' and not the 'n'.

Always felt that was a bit harsh myself.
