I'm pretty sure this one would be lost on anyone who doesn't know how Norfolk is pronounced.

Side note on that, in New England dialect you hear it pronounced Nor-fork a lot. I don't know why we drop Rs in some places but add them in others.

If I ever get a race horse, I shall call it: "My Face".

Just imagine standing near the finish line with people shouting: "Come on My Face!!"

There was a horse that raced in New Zealand and Australia with the name Waikikamukau. Looks like a bit of a tongue twister, but it was pronounced as "why kick a moo cow".
