Garbled Street Names

… and where do you live again?

Dysfunction Junction

Some strange street names are real.

I used public transit to commute to a recent job … there’s a recorded announcement of each stop. As usual with transit PA systems, the sound quality isn’t the best. Some street names don’t sound at all like their real names — here are a few of my favorites.

[Note: The wise person may be able to decipher this list and discover my old transit route. Don’t assume you know where I live now; I may have moved since I took this commute.]

•    Blargh Street
•    Symbiont Street  or was is Sivivon (dreidl)
•    Beta Squared
•    Brain Tree
•    Fokker Ave.
•    Glaucous Avenue
•    Service to Edward, P.A.

Do you have a list like this? Or any other garbled street names? Real ones please … it’s too easy to make up names.
