We were walking in the Sydney suburb of Woolloomooloo last week and noticed this amusing take on the place name. We’ll never forget how to spell it now.

The little sculpture paddock behind the signs (below) also pays homage to the “wool” and “moo” parts of the name, but lacks a loo. It’s claimed that Woolloomooloo has more o’s than any other word in the English language.
