It Is All In The Name On Fun Friday!


Whilst busy contemplating this and that we thought as it is fun Friday we take a look at Britain's silliest street names. From lazy to dumb we sure got them covered.











What is the weirdest street name you have come across? Have a fabulous Friday all.

  17. OMP These are too funny! We have a street a couple over from us here at the Hotel Thompson that is called Easy Street. What's funnier is that above the street sign it says "No Outlet". Snoticles every time we pass it. XOXO - Bacon

  33. We have tons of silly street names here too. I think that there may be a "no name street" somewhere around these parts too. Another ones that come to mind is "hairy man road" (which has a scary story to go with it).

    ReplyDelete
  34. hahahaha now I know from where my mom came lol. we have a village here named Moron ( hope the staff plans not to move now) Have a funny friday!

    ReplyDelete
  35. We've been absent for a bit, but it is good to see you back.

  36. We actually have a place near Barnstaple called Snapper! Our daughter lives near a road called Inner Ting Tong! Lol. Hope your mum is feeling better Molly.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Bwahaahaa! The CRAZY thing here is each small town you go in, has the same street names!

    Our Grandpa wanted to rename his street Private Road in honour of all the privates killed in wars. But the county wasn't having it, so it continued to be a through street for traffic!

    ReplyDelete
  38. MOL!! All the Welsh ones are weird! Trust me!

    ReplyDelete
  39. We agree those are some silly street names! How about some of the silly names for pubs? Love Dolly

  45. Here in the U.S., a really rural area is referred to as Podunk. And we have a Podunk Road near our town.

    It's located near Swamp College Road, another real winner.

    I don't want to know what kind of degree you get in a Swamp College. :)

  46. We've seen a Sore Finger Road which was pretty funny. But it doesn't compare to Horse Thief Recreation Area and Frozen Head State Park.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Those are some pretty cool names! We don't have any fun ones from around here that I know about.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Some of those are very funny!
