01/24/09 69 W, 1 I - + 15 - 11 No Snickering: That Road Sign Means Something Else

The New York Times profiles some funny road names in Europe, such as the "butt" in the South Yorkshire sign, that "probably refers to a container for collecting water." Crapstone. Pratts Bottom. Etcetera. Yes, we are easily amused. But just imagine Locution announcing some of those names...

I can think of several people of which this road may be named after?

There is one in Hoke County that got past the authorities- DILIGAF Rd. And then there was the old road in Knightdale- Jack Ass Road.
