I wonder what these old timers thought about the F4U Corsair during WWII?

We use to have a road called Devils rd. , they wound up building a few houses on it and the people who lived there bitched to the county and had it changed.

There's some residents in Chicago who are trying to change the name of their street as well. Everyone mispronounces it. It is supposed to be pronounced 'Kray-Poe', but everyone reads 'Crapo' off a sign and says what comes to mind.

I guess I would agree with them if it was 'El Crapo' but it isn't...

I live on "268th". Damn I hate that name!

Oklahoma had a "Black Boy Creek" that was named that way over 100 years ago, but it's long gone now...

Officials would give no timetable for addressing complaints concerning KnobGobble Lane, Codfondler Square, and East Bumfuck Township.

They are even changing the name of Hwy 666.

Aparently, some Native Americans feel that it was a curse of the white man when they numbered the road.

We have a Hangman Creek that runs through Hangman Valley here that the people that lived there wanted to change but was shot down by the Dept. of the Interior because you can't change history.

Here in SE Texas, we have a Jap Rd that some ACLU types wanted to re-name becuse they thought it might be offensive, even though no one had ever said they were offended.

We also have one called Vaglicka. No one has said anything about that one. I laugh and elbow my wife when we pass it.

F4Q would be another option?
Liberty Blvd. in Cleveland, named in honor of the WWI vets was changed to MLK Blvd.
They could have chosen any other road but that one.
Not to discount MLK in any way, but that isn't right.
Not enough WWI vets left to complain anymore.

How about "Big Bone Lick" in Kentucky?



People need to stop being so damn stupid. 6FU - what the hell is wrong with that?!? What a bunch of whiny pussies
Link Posted: 11/22/2003 6:40:55 AM EDT
So 6FU is somehow obscene, but "Sheep Mountin'" isn't. That's some baaaaaaaaad logic, there.
Link Posted: 11/22/2003 6:59:23 AM EDT
It's better than Road FU2.

You know, Speedway, IN, where the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is located, is actually where the historic town of French Lick was. So, technically, the race should be called "The French Lick 500!"

Just be glad you don't live here!

Our county tax collectors name is Ed Crapo

Hacienda Heights has Sordello Rd. I keep waiting to see that somebody has changed the sign.

San Diego has Eurkinda Pl. and Haveteur Way.

And of course in NC and TE is the ever favorite French Broad River.
