The town of "Elderly people" is also considering a name change

Milford Haven Council has voted by a landslide to rename the town in embarrassment. The name was fairly innocuous until the invention of the word "milf", meaning an older lady (or mother) deemed eligible for intercourse. Now the town regularly has its signposts stolen and it is even laughed at by Bognor Regis. In future Milford Haven will be known as Cougartown.

This is not the first time a British town has had to change its name following the emergence of a new and suggestive slang word. During the 1990s, Doggington was renamed to Dagenham, and the town of Goatse became Hull.

Going back to the 1930s, Gayville was renamed to Brighton in an attempt to encourage bright young people to move there, with limited success. Pity its poor neighbour Hardon, who changed their name to Worthing and ended up being full of stiff old pensioners.

However, these trends are nothing new. In the 13th century, London was itself known as C**ting-on-Thames, a name which these days seems more appropriate than ever.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
