    That's not the point, though, is it :p ("Hi, can you tell me where Ware is?" "Umm...")

    My other favourite in that vein is Towcester, pronounced Toaster :D

    If that counts then there's a place near me called Wye (obviously pronounced 'Why')
    ("Hi, where are you from?", "Why?")

    I'm sure theres a few more around here but too tired/hangover to think straight!!
