My mother always had Morning Glories on a trellis when I was growing up. They were lovely blooms; I'd have them here if the climate weren't so forbidding.

Presumably, I can't punch donkeys now, either.

You know your town's a shiathole when you get asked to change a completely innocuous street name, and you do it... to attract a company with roughly 170 employees.

Nope.

beautifulbob: My favorite local road is Clithero.

Makes me smile every time.


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...

shiatty area tho. Sometimes walk thru there on breaks (the office is nearby). Tweaker alley, despite the name.

And, of course, everybody knows about Intercourse, Penn., and Dildo, Newfoundland, not far from Conception Bay.

Methinks it has more to do with the Japs and their translations of english words into similar yet not quite on the money equivalent Kanji characters.

Odds are one of these astute, young, multinational types who has spent time over there in his wild days looked at that, translated it in his bilingual brain and snickered, remembering a fun morning after a night of partying with a new found lady friend and realized that street name was a bad idea....
After all, ever look at the great slogan Asus uses? "Rock solid. Heart touching." dafuq? Heart touching? Seriously? Its a motherboard.

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.

I hear that Xactware officials have been thinking about moving into the plastic vagina market, so the name Morning Glory could cause people to think their products might get a little banged up before they are shipped to market.
 
2013-01-04 11:24:38 PM
I though Xact meant to roger someone other than your first wife arseways. Or maybe it should starting now.

"Councilor Mark Johnson told the Daily Herald that he only knows of the noxious weed called Morning Glory that is difficult to control, but he also voted in favor of the resolution. "


This dude clearly needs to change his name.

Indubitably: To vagina

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.

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.

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!!!"

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.
