We like a good laugh at the Doglist. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. We think that ordinary, decent hard-working people need time to relax and unwind, chill out, recharge their batteries, recuperate, refresh their screens, revive, take a breather, slip into some comfortable trousers, pull up a paff-chair, snorkel..... so have a quiet chortle at the following.

In our on-going series of 'Celebrity Favourite Fifties' (remember how you laughed at Yaw Mait's Fifty Favourite Shaving Stories!!!!!), we proudly present Mr. Bursley's Fifty Favourite Place Names. They are all genuine, authenticated and have many of your chummy co-readers cheerfully domiciled within their cosy emunctory environs.
