Two brothers that drove 2,000 miles on an epic ‘Rude Trip’ of Britain – visiting every place with a RUDE name, were wondering how they could cash in on their trip and how to go viral in the press.
The brothers contacted SellUsYourStory.com using the Story Valuation form on this page.
We loved their story and photos, so we arranged multiple newspaper deals for the brothers. The pair sat back and watched the payments roll in.
Streets, villages and towns with naughty titles
Andy and Magnus Tait spent six YEARS planning their journey visiting streets, villages and towns with naughty titles.
Their stopped off at Cumwhinton, Fanny Street, Upperthong, Butthole Lane, Willey, Titty Ho and Sandyballs.
They also visited Bellenden Gardens, Poundbottom, Cockermouth, Penistone, Butthole Bell End, The Knob, Lower Swell, Old Sodbury, Butcombe and Shaftesbury.
The pair also took in Shitterton, Lickfold, Fingringhoe, Slutshole Lane, Feltwell, Fanny Hands Lane, Scunthorpe, Rimswell – and Wetwang.
The lads spent four days on their road trip and took a selfie picture at 34 road, town or village signs.
Their remarkable blue tour of Britain saw them trek through at least 25 counties on each of the North, East, South and West coasts.
The trip took six years for 34-year-old Andy, from Aberdeen, to meticulously map out.
He dreamed up the idea after he drove past a place called South Gash, in Northern Scotland in 2013 with his brother Magnus, 32, from Edinburgh.
Andy says he couldn’t help but laugh at a South Gash signpost and ever since that day has researched the location of other hilariously named places.
Hilariously named places
He then went on to painstakingly map out a route, incorporating 34 stops in almost every corner of Britain.
“I always enjoy going out of my way to have fun and to take things too far”, said audio engineer Andy.
“It was a lot of fun and we actually saw a lot of interesting places.
“It was a bit of a slog towards the end and it was dark when we got to some places. But never at any point did we get bored.
“I’d say it’s definitely an alternative was to see Britain. We just found it hilarious.
We laughed our asses off at each place and that says a lot about us.”
Wads of cash
Andy and software developer Magnus set off on their journey from Bellenden Gardens, in Edinburgh, on Friday morning (April 27).
They arrived back in the same street at 1.30am on Tuesday Morning (April 30).
He says it took him six years to convince his brother to join him on the trip after constant pestering ever since the pair passed South Gash together in 2013.
Andy chipped away at planning his route on a monthly basis over the six years, before finally packing up a few belongings, snacks for the road and wads of cash for fuel.
He says the trip saw they visit some of the country’s prettiest places.
The most picturesque places for him were Poundbottom and Sandyballs in the New Forest.
But his favourite out of the whole lot based on the hilarity of its name was Wilsford Cum Lake.
He saw the funny side of it eventually
Andy said: “I’ve had the idea for six years now. I insisted we stopped at South Gash to take a photo but Magnus didn’t fancy it.
“That led to an obsession for places with funny names and six years later Magnus decided to make it up to me.
“He saw the funny side of it eventually.”
Andy’s route is so well mapped out that it only took the pair between 60 and 90 minutes to drive between each stop.
He said: “We went right down the west coast, along the south coast and up the east coast of England.
“We have got a childish and immature sense of humour.
“This is something we can tick off our bucket list.”
