Udimore village near Winchelsea, England has two claims to fame. The first is Spike Milligan died there after which he presumably stopped cracking jokes. The second is a nearby country lane that has this peculiar name. Once upon a time ‒ or so the legend goes ‒ a woman looked out a window and saw a cart filled with smuggled whisky trundling past. They removed her tongue to help her keep the secret. If they did, how could she have spoken about it? This version does not make sense. We think it more likely she was intellectually indisposed.
