Hollywood and Vine . . .

OK, not funny in Beverly Hills, California, but frickin' hilarious on two dirt roads in the middle of no where Wasilla, Alaska . . .

So named because the damned 911 Emergency System must have a name for each street . . . so the residents names one Hollywood, the other Vine . . . there you have it. . .

Too many dope smokers out there, that's the excuse.

Oh YEAH!! I remember that road when I was driving with my uncle's family from Las Vegas to Ontario! Weird.

A friend of mine said when he and is mother were driving from Virginia Beach back to Richmond, he saw a street called, "Skeet Street." He wanted to take the sign so bad. Hope he wasn't lying.

I was driving up Leslie Street in Toronto a few days ago and passed a Go Transit bus station named "OLD CUMMER". I'm amazed I've never noticed that before.

Friends of mine live at the corner of AMERICA & BOOM. After the 9/11 attacks, there was talk of changing the name of Boom Road. Dave Letterman actually sent a camera crew up to investigate. Letterman's segment caused a bit of a stir in the days following, as he made sure to point out the intersection's close proximity to a large, beautiful mosque.

Alderman Willey Close, Wokingham, Berks, UK

The other one was in Woodley, a suburb of Reading, UK, where a housing estate was built on an old aerodrome and all the roads were named after aircraft. The main arterial road was going to be named 'Douglas Bader Walk', pretty ironic since the guy couldn't....in the end it was named 'Bader Way'.

Wackiest Street Names

"Wacker Drive" in Chicago is pretty wacky.

I was passing "Sweetwater Dr" in Desert Springs, Ca. The sign had been hit at the end and deformed so it appeared to say "Sweetwat".
Heh,heh...... I guess you had be there.

It's probably quite ordinary but there's a street in Melbourne when you're near the end of the Route 64 Tram line... "Cheeseman Avenue"

I used to live in Utrecht in Holland and there's a street there called ABC street. I always imagined the town authorities having a meeting to come up with a new name, not being able to decide and in the the end just saying, "Ah bollocks, let's just call it ABC street!"
