If that passes for sexually suggestive, then the Mormans really need to get their heads out of the gutter.  I'm an atheist, and my first inclination was that it was a religious reference.

Lived in Clitherall for a while. Always surprised me at how many people, mainly women, thought I was suddenly being foul for no apparent reason. You could tell from the sudden "WHAT? What was that town again?". It got old after about the10th time, so I would just spell it instead of say it, if I was talking to a woman that needed my address. Many a brain fart on the spelling too, as they would want me to repeat it, probably thinking they heard wrong since I was "obviously trying to be a sexist pig" and they couldn't concentrate through their fantasies of what a perverted jerk I must be... Otherwise I would just say the county. Of course, that posed problems too since it was Otter Tail...

It's funny how many people are saying "dumb Mormons" when they've been ok with the name and it's an outside company that's asking for the change.

That plant is responsible for millions of dollars in lost cotton income in the Southwest. Some woman in Boston thought, "Ain't this plant purrrty?" and brought it to the Gila Valley, Arizona, where it became a plague for generations.

Morning glory was the stuff we had to pick out from the cotton plants before they strangled the cotton. Mind you, the leaves look IDENTICAL to cotton when they're young. That was before Monsanto came in with a version of RoundUp that killed only the morning glory. Now, the entire south is seeing the plant become immune to RoundUp, and the Southwest is next. Looks like they'll be hiring Mexicans and teenagers again to do the dirty work. It sucks, by the way, picking morning glory out of cotton when it's 110 degrees and the humidity is coming off the cotton plants.

arrrgh, morning glory was read as glory hole.
glad to see it was not a repeat of when you had to cover your eyes before clicking on a link.

wonder what the going rate renaming that road was.

Grope Lane is kinda funny but the story gets better.

Gropecoont Lane - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


I know, but no street signs saying "Gropecoont" exist anymore. At least, no streets are named as such...

Train minds to see temptation in everything God created, and they will.

What's the story, wishbone?

I say we make other names into "sexual references". See if we can't get these dolts to, I dunno, change the state's name.
 
2013-01-05 12:02:31 AM  
So they chose to rename it "Morning Vista", huh?

Farkers... we now have a job, and that job is to make the term "Morning Vista" the most filthy term evar.

I asked my girlfriend for a "morning vista" for my birthday. She said "Wouldn't you just prefer a little ungreased back door action... please!!!"

I've lived on High Wood road. Amusing me since I was ten.
 
2013-01-05 12:20:31 AM  
So, I know this isn't perverted or suggestive, but just something I remembered from a decade or more back...

Somewhere along Foothill Blvd (Route 66) between Pasadena and Rancho Cucamonga, they renamed a street, which had been Padua Ave. They put up big signs with the new name, followed below by an equally large sign saying:

"Formerly Padua Avenue"

I decided that if I were ever rich enough to own my very own street, I would name it "Formerly Padua Avenue."

Late to the conversation, but here's my CSB:

I travel for work most weeks, and when I get bored I try to get myself as lost as possible, walking or driving depending on where I am. The most memorable street name that cracked me up to no end was just outside of St. Louis, in a fairly affluent-seeming neighborhood.

Upper Bottom Road.

I spent the rest of the drive trying to think of what that could possibly mean other than the obvious. I came up with nothing.
 
2013-01-05 01:00:32 AM  
So.

I just now learned the phrase "Morning Glory Road" is somehow pornographic ... from the Mormons.

Thanks, I guess.

There's a Longwood Drive a few blocks from here, that one always gives me a giggle. Also in the neighborhood are Bird Avenue and Lilac Crescent. Coincidentally, a gay friend of mine lives on Lilac. Seems fitting somehow :D

Charles_Nelson_Reilly: wantingout: shouldn't the real issue be the fact that corporations are asking cities to change street names, and the cities are complying? Just who is in control here?

What's wrong with doing what the company asked? I imagine they city would like the jobs that would come with the company' location. It's cheaper than tax breaks.

It's funny how many people are saying "dumb Mormons" when they've been ok with the name and it's an outside company that's asking for the change.

2013-01-05 07:37:55 AM  
Heh. We have a development up here in the mountains that has streets that seem to be named by a bunch of drunken fratboys. Klitoya. Tillicum. Titticaca. I can't remember the rest, but they're pretty amusing.

Pretty faces everywhere
A few hard cases stop and stare
They've got charm that is not right
Pretty faces late at night
Morning Glory what's the story
Will it ever end
I've been all the way to Biscayne Bay
And all the way back again
All the way back again
I remember our old rendezvous
The key was kept inside a shoe
Those moments will remain frozen in time
Morning Glory's on my mind
What's the story Morning Glory
Will it ever end
I've been all the way to Biscayne Bay
And all the way back again
All the way back again

It seems like only yesterday
She married me and carried me away
I found out what life was all about
Morning Glory threw me out
Hey Morning Glory what's the story
Will it ever end
I've been all the way to Biscayne Bay
And all the way back again
Alimony, Palimony
Puts a dent in me
I've been all the way to Biscayne Bay
For a dip in the shining sea
A dip in the shining sea

Pretty faces everywhere
A few hard cases stop and stare
Even when I know it ain't my day
A lot of good faces anyway
Morning Glory what's the story
What is it to be
I've been all the way to Biscayne Bay
For a dip in the shining sea
A dip in the shining sea

What's the story Morning Glory
Will it ever end
I've been all the way to Biscayne Bay
And all the way back again
All the way back again
Hey Morning Glory what's the story
Will it ever end
I've been all the way to Biscayne Bay
And all the way back again
All the way back again

911 What's the problem?

Um, I'm trying to exit Morning Vista Lane. My car seems to be stuck.

Oh yes. It's the UAC. I see your request. I'll allow it.

Oh. Now I can move. Thank you.

911. What's the problem?

I'm trying to turn on to Morning Vista Lane but the car won't move.

Oh. One moment. I'll allow it. There you go.

Uh, thanks.

There's a Longwood University in Virginia. With a student population that is 70% female, I bet it is.

I think we can all agree that this is just a play by the business to attempt to have their name somehow incorporated in the new proposed naming.

While it's a stretch, I can totally see that it is a clear possible motivation.
