Strange Street Names

Sunday Funnies . . . we are at it again. Living in a small town, many of the street names are in honor of someone or something (well, maybe in big cities also!), but so far street names in Fowlerville are pretty conservative. Not like some of the following I found on a website called Squidoo at

Enjoy . . .

If street names are a living record of a community's history, one has to wonder whether the heads of the city fathers were screwed on tight when they came up with some of the following little gems in the USA.

The intersection of Lonesome Road and Hardup Road in Albany, Georgia.

Farfrompoopen Road, in Arkansas, the only way to get to Constipation Ridge.

This Ain't It Road, in Alexander City, Alabama, might just be where all men end up who don't need a map, a GPS, or a backseat driver to tell them how to get there wherever there is.

And next time you can't find either the slot machines or had one too many maragaritas, maybe it's because you're on Liquid Loco Street.

Most likely all the incompletely successful souls who reside in Evansville, Indiana, live on Little Schmuck Road.

You might what to find out if "Santa Baby" ever hangs out on Candy Cane Lane in Redding, California.

But if truth be told, do you really want to know who lives on Cannibal Road, in Loleta, California?

Only at the intersection of Clinton and Fidelity in Houston, Texas, do crowds gather to share a historical encounter in the life of a past president.

Meanwhile across the pond those bodacious Brits probably take the cake with these hilarious head-scratchers: Authorities indicate that those who live on Ha-Ha Road in Woolwich, England (all have funnybones), but Gropecuntlane residents in London, England usually smile a lot more. Turkey Cock Lane in Colchester, England, where no one ever asks what they're being served for Christmas dinner is another one. Shoot Up Hill in Kilburn, England, is where one wonders if there are any varmints still left in the place. Bishop Butt Close in Orpington, England, begs the question if politically-correct preachers are welcome. And, then for the local milk farmers, Milk Street in Manchester.

Just a mere sampling to tickle your funny bone.
