This will be the the Bristol Butcher Herbert H Brain I presume...

Here's one of his marketing initiatives

"Mr Brain’s is launching Faggot Friday and he wants you to join in the fun! Throughout the autumn, Mr Brain’s is calling on the Great British public to get together every Friday and enjoy a plate of his tasty faggots."

Fascinating!

I have a book here called "Rude World" a book of naughty place names. There’s a place in Austria called F**king :shock:
There's an even ruder one in Elâziğ in Turkey, though it has an umlaut in the u, so I'm not sure if it counts..

It's nowhere near as funny as it's name suggests!
