The funniest tube stop name

With almost 300 stops and a penchant for having names that sound a little odd to American ears (Cheapside, Elephant and Castle, Wapping), you would think it would be hard to come up with the funniest tube station name (which would likely correspond to a name of an area). Well, let me tell you, it’s not even close. I’ll give you a hint:


(It ain’t Heathrow)

Not only in the stop in question snicker worthy (I’m not the only one. I swear!), but it’s the end of the line for the Picadilly line which means you get to hear it multiple times when going north/eastbound and you get signs like the one above just screaming it at you. 🙂

Someday soon, you’ll have a picture of me at that stop. And I’ll have to find a pub in the area.

    It’s Northfields, right?

    PS: are you in London for Xmas or “the States”?

    Northfields… HA! That IS funny. (That wasn’t it? Oh…) By the way – nice suit.

    There is a Cock and Dragon pub near the tube station- I looked it up. Hee hee-Cock- I am so immature!

    Everytime someone says Northfields, I just can’t help but giggle. Oh wait, I meant the other one. The Cock and Dragon in Cockfosters?? Wow. And it looks like it’s not too far from the tube stop. Perfect! My trip is ready and planned.
