  • POSTSCRIPT: Sounds as if he didn't make it to BF. He detoured with his mates to do some mud-racing on the flats around Gunn Point. After inflicting a power of damage to his vehicle - including wrecking the bull bar and getting the exhaust ripped off during a tow - the group then spent a sleepless night being feasted upon by mosquitoes. He was back on Saturday less than 24 hours after he departed.

  • Ha! We always call it "East Bumfuck." It's just a surprise funny when you spring it on someone. I think it's especially funny because it starts with 'bum' and ends with 'fuck.' Kind of like the sweet and sour of jokes!

  • Well, I have some kind of metaphorical places and metaphorical, metaphysical places lists.

    But I'm not adding this.

    Because, you know, - FILTH!!!

    And also, because I have always heard this particular location referred to as Buttfuck, Iowa. Which, as I have friends from Iowa, I am certainly not putting on any list o' mine.

  • I seem to remember 'metaphorical places' type lists ... rolig, pterodactyl?

  • I've been there too. Apparently there's no edges to it--you're always either in the middle of it, or somewhere else.

    ... Doesn't someone have a list of these places, like "back of Bourke"?
