The island of Pohnpei, one of those in Micronesia, has an interesting yet unfortunately-named physical feature. It is called Pwisen Malek, which translates literally to Chickenshit Mountain. This landmark acquired its name because of an old native legend which traced its origins as due to a giant chicken defecating on that spot, leaving a mountain of manure. I'm glad I don't have to clean up that!
