Dildo is a Newfoundland, Canada town named after the thole-pins they used to use on rowing boats that lonely groups of fishermen rode out on stormy seas. These had lumps on the end which came in handy as they served as pivots for the oars. We’ll move on from that thought, because it could distract us from Dildo’s many other features. Being on an island, we suspect they may have had a rowing competition somewhere nearby, and put this sign up so contestants knew where to find regulation thole-pins, oars and other things they might require.
