Finally, a map of all the Knobs in Australia

British mapmakers have followed up maps of hilarious place names in the UK and US with one of Australia, land of Titwobble Lane and Pisspot Creek.

Science: Adding "Bottom" to the end of any place name makes it funny.

Yes, Australia may be filled with such antipodean delights as several of the most venomous animals on Earth, but it's hard to take the country seriously sometimes. Especially when you look at what places there are called.

British mapmaker Strumpshaw, Tincleton & Giggleswick has designed a carefully curated map of ridiculous Australian place names. Expect to find such locations as Misery Knob, Yorkeys Knob, Big Knob and Wallaby Knob. Yes, they're all real.

It's the mapmaker's third foray into making cartography interesting, with previous efforts poking fun at the UK (Assington Green) and US (Superior Bottom).

You can pick up all three of the maps from the Strumpshaw, Tincleton & Giggleswick website.
