Well in suburban Atlanta we have "Beaver Ruin Road". :D
In State College, PA, (Home of Penn State University), anything that isn't "Nittany" or "Lion" is "Beaver."


There's a Beaver Hall, Beaver Avenue, and the biggest beaver of all:




Beaver Stadium. Capacity: 107,282. :thu:

I encourage you to note the exit number on the Big Beaver Road sign, if you haven't already. Good. Thank you. I suspect they designed the entire Interstate system around that.


Hey, while we're talking about weird names...


I dated a girl whose last name was "Glascock." Pronounced "Glass Cock." She had considered changing her name to her mother's maiden name, but then she just would have been "Ann Grier." Pronounced "Angrier." She once dated a guy named "Jeremy Duhme." Pronounced "Do me." If they had gotten married, it would have been the "Do me, glass cock" wedding.


Now print out this post and read it to your kids. Thanks.


Oh... one more. I temped for a pharm company for a couple weeks right after I graduated from college. I had to call doctors to invite them to "symposia." Anywho, one doctor I called was named "Vic Poohat." That's right: Poohat. Thankfully, I didn't have the chance to attempt to pronounce his name phonetically; they answered "Doctor Poe-haw's office." Yeah, right. Dr. Poehaw. :rolleyes:


On the same list of dr's: Dr. Sidipon Putang. That's right: Sidipon Putang. Say that one out loud. Now go say it to your kids. Thanks.

At Florida State University, there was an Air Force Captain studying whose name was Al Weiner. You'd think he'd pronounce it "Whiner" (which isn't really good, either) but he pronounced it "Weener".


He was promoted to Major.

I sat next to a Weiner (weener) at my last office job. He got married while I knew him, and his wife took his last name.


Oooohh... there was a Schmuck family in my hometown. Spelled exactly like that: S-c-h-m-u-c-k. Three boys, each less than a year apart from the other. I played them in soccer once. Imagine three kids, and one Mom coach, all with "Schmuck" written on the back of their shirts. Yikes.

The names of two people I attended high school with:


Amanda Lynn (I'll leave her last name off this post, but her parents DID name her after the instrument. She was not amused.)


Richard Swett was his full name, but he sometimes went by Dick. His nickname was Penis Perspiration.


I'm not gonna even admit to the name of the place I live now!! It's just damn goofy.
