There's just no way "broom rape" can be good. No matter how you parse it.

With a little rape oil the Broomrape will go down easy.

I .. See one paragraph.. and thats it.

There are actually 10 items but due to craptastic scripting only the first one displays if using NoScript. I had to use IE to see them all (and it's really not worth the trouble).

FYI "broomrape" is a parasitic plant - still not a good name for a road.

I assume Broomrape comes from some sort of Old English word or phrase (considering that "rape" in this instance is most likely from the administration meaning)

/Rape has different etymologies that have different meaning

I was wrong. Should have Googled, first. Apparently a "broomrape" is a kind of plant.

I had a friend that lived in a basement with three other people on "Dead End Alley" (Fairbanks, AK)

I come from Twatt. I spend a lot of time in Twatt. Twatt is one of my favorite places to be. It can get pretty warm and damp in Twatt.

/Been to Twatt, actually. It's never very warm there.

i'm thinking Psycho Path is a private road with a humorous novelty road sign...considering the address given next to it does not include "psycho path"

Yeah, looks like http://curbed.com is a pretty embarrassing address itself.

I have a client who lives on "Gay Place". The home values on that street are lower than everything around it.

Poopoo Place is in Hawaii, so I think it's probably pronounced poe (as in Edgar Allan) oh poe oh. But yeah, I can see how this could be embarrassing, especially if you have to tell someone how to spell your street name who isn't from Hawaii.

A friend of mine lived near the Crapi Apartments. When I saw their photo, I thought they had snagged the one I had taken, due to the mail truck in both.

I used to live on Swallow St. The lady at the social security office started laughing uncontrollably when she saw it. There was also a cashier checking my ID and she said she would be embarrassed to ever say that she lived on that street.

/In town there is also a Jiffy Lube on the corner of Gay Street.

A heck of a lot of streets named Sandusky, but Google's not helping me out on this one.

Not embarrassing, but I have a client that lives on Easy Street in Carefree, Arizona. He's rich, so I guess it fits well.

In Louisville KY you can drive down Penile Rd. First you cross Manslick and then the next street is Cummings. There's even Penile Baptist Church for your religious farkers out there.

And it connects to "Old New Cut Road", which... my mind "corrected" that one. It also connects to Ashley Pointe Dr, which... she sounds kinda hot. I'm okay with this. And then it hits Blevin's Gap. That is probably the best street in the US.

I used to drive by the Crapi Apartments on my daily commute to the Westside.

I don't know why they chose Boring Street when there's actually an entire town of Boring, Oregon.

A buddy of mine lives on easy street in Leucadia,CA.Its a dirt/gravel road,he and his neighbors
put up a sign years ago(looked like a small child did it)And eventually the city put up an Easy St.sign.

Was it supposed to be "Capri" and the signmaker screwed up?
