At the Corner of…

My German students are currently learning to give and receive directions for finding places. My mind, of course, seeks to find humor in most situations. Therefore, I thought of some sign pictures that I thought would go together well in one post.

These are all pictures of the humor of two streets intersecting.

I'm told that the next four intersections are in Atlanta. They apparently had a shortage of names for streets there since so many seem to be variations on a theme.

Peachtree and Peachtree

Peachtree and W Peachtree

Ponce de Leon and Ponce de Leon

Clifton and Clifton

I don't know what city the following is in, but it's a similar situation to the ones in Atlanta.

Montreal and Montreal

Here are a couple that would be just as confusing.

North and East

North and West

How would you react if someone said, "Hey, meet me at the corner of Stroke and Acoma"?!

Stroke and Acoma

The trauma at the next intersection is more emotional than physical.

Lonesome and Hardup

Here are some intersections that sound much more pleasant than the last couple.

Merry Lane and Christmas Lane

Clark and Kent

Church and State

Strait and Crooked

Jekyll and Hyde

Grinn and Barret

Trekkies will love this last one.

Live Long and Prosper

I look forward to the comments and more funny intersections my readers know about.

    This is not an intersection, but the street sign always makes me smile. As you wind your way up the mountain to the Wilds, you pass a street named “Hard to Find Drive”.

    Are those angel cats at the end there? 🙂

    How about right here in Greenville where Roper Mountain Rd intersects Roper Mountain Rd?

    I had a picture of one that Star Trek fans would appreciate: The street sign said “Borg” (the “Resistance is futile” scourge of the universe) and underneath was a “Dead End” sign. 🙂

    I think someone had fun naming those streets!

    Years ago I heard this joke:
    A man and wife are walking down the street and the woman gets hit and injured by a car. The man calls 911 for help. The operator says “can you give me your location?”. The man answers “we’re at the corner of Chrysanthemum and Hyacinth.”. The 911 operator (who is a little slow) says, “please spell that”. There is silence for a little bit from the man and they he says “um, just a minute and I’ll drag her down to the corner of Elm and Oak”. 🙂

    If you like towns with multiple versions of the same name, you should check out the hamlet/city of Sherwood Park. We have 4 variations of the name Lilac, 10 of Nottingham, and 18 of Foxboro, among others. For example, there is: Foxboro Court, Foxboro Place, Bay, Drive, Close, Landing, Pointe, Terrace, Circle, Way, Grove, Link, Cove, Crescent, Loop, Lane, Road and Run. Navigation is impossible without Google maps. I think the city planners were having too much fun with their thesaurus…
