Well, I looked on their website and the first item on the list of things they do is

Did you not see my thread a while back for "Wankdorf", near Bern? It apparently means "Staggering village". MonikaS - any comment on that?

The Americans are a bit more circumspect - I remember in Pennsylvania we went through a place called Intercourse.
Amazingly, it was near an Amish village. [:0]
