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'.

"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".

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"

Whenever I see it I usually start giggling, and that's if I'm in a bad mood!

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!"

If you think about it, "Wall Street" is kind of strange, despite its familiarity.

I mean, is it a wall? A street? What is it?

It used to be a wall

A century before, Dutch settlers had built a wall to protect themselves from Indians, priates, and other dangers. The path had become a bustling commercial thoroughfare because it joined the banks of the East River with those of the Hudson River on the west. The path was named Wall Street. Early merchants built their warehouses and shops on this path, along with a city hall and a church. New York was the U.S. national capitol from 1785 until 1790 and Federal Hall was built on Wall Street. George Washington was inaugurated on the steps of this building

I grew up in the "Hoogaarslaan" somewhere in the Netherlands. That means "high ass lane." It is a ship. Since the 1970s, streets got more alternative names here, instead of old Royals and politicians they were named after ships, flowers, lighthouses, even jazz and rock stars) but an absolute embarresment. More then once, when I ordered something by phone they threw the horn thinking it was a lame joke.

Ragged Ass Road
Ragged Ass is a colloquial term for “dirt poor,” and it used to be the name of a small gold mine in this area. However, the story of Ragged Ass Road involves three local fellows, a late night and just the right amount of liquid refreshment. The boys decided to rename their street Ragged Ass Road. They painted a sign and put it up, in a part of Yellowknife called Old Town. The name stuck, and soon after, Ragged Ass Road was adopted as an official street name.

Singer Tom Cochrane named a music album after Yellowknife’s famous street a few years ago. And now one of our hottest local gift items is a full sized (or pint sized) official Ragged Ass Road sign. The metal street signs used to disappear so often from the street corner in Old Town, that Yellowknife City fathers declared the signs could be sold to keep the City budget in line.

And that’s the story behind Yellowknife’s most famous street.
