    A friend of mine lives in Detroit and he said that when you are on I-75 and you get off 69,you will see a road sign that says Big Beaver Road.

    I edited this because I found a photo of the road sign my friend told me about.

    In California, not sure where exactly, but it is just inside California on the drive from Las Vegas, it is ZZZYZZXX Road. Not sure on the spelling, but it is VERY close to that.

    there is also a cumming street in Omaha. In Council Bluffs there is High street, AND there is a AA/NA house on the street (and I believe also there is a 1/2-way house on it.. )

    Oh, I love funny place names. I used to proof read directories of providers for an insurance company, and it broke up the monotony to male a "find". How about
    Truth or Consequences, NM (Named after the TV show as a publicity stunt, I've heard)
    Show Low, AZ (land was won in a card game)
    Witch Duck Rd in southern VA (as in a place where alledged witches were "ducked" or as we say dunked in water to see if they drowned, but I've always pictured a duck in a pointy black hat)
    Lake Jackson, TX has streets called "This Way" "That Way" "Parking Way" and "Parking Place".
    There's an Arab, AL - pronounced A-rab (anyone remember the Ray Stevens song Ahab the Arab?) and a Versailles, KY. I pronounced it like the home of Louis XIV and got laughed at - it's Ver-sales to the locals.
    Some of the abbreviations of long names gave us a fit, too, because the local health plans wanted them in all caps, like SPID (South Padre Island Drive in TX) and ORNAC (Old Road to Nine Acre Corner in NY).
    I'm sure I'll remember more once I quit trying to...
    Don't litter - spay or neuter your pets.
    Until there are none, rescue one

    And we have a little community here called Horneytown, NC
    It's my own two cents. You don't have to read or like it.

    Just thought I'd throw this in. Blue Ball & Intercourse are right next to Bird-In-Hand, Pa. Those Amish really know how to call 'em.
