    Psycho Path Voted Wackiest Street Name Fri Feb 24, 7:06 PM ET


    LOS ANGELES - Farfrompoopen Road, the only road to Constipation Ridge, lost to Divorce Court and Psycho Path, which placed No. 1 in an online poll of the nation's wildest, weirdest and wackiest street names.

    Mitsubishi Motors sponsored the poll on the Web site http://www.TheCarConnection.com and more than 2,500 voters cast their ballots during a week of voting that ended this month. Winners were announced Friday.

    We have some interesting road names around here, which I think denote the rural flavor of the area..

    Goose Run Road
    Chicken Hollow Road
    Stony Hollow Road
    Bethel-New Hope Road (shows the "Bible Belt" attitude of the area)

    I also know of a Lois Lane here, but I think the funniest ones are in my dad's neighborhood in Ramsey, MN. The developers decided to name the streets after the periodic table of elements, AND in alphabetical order. They don't have ALL the elements, just one for each letter of the alphabet. Like, my dad was on Vanadium St. My friend lived a few blocks down on Iodine st. And, the funniest two names were Junkite St. and Krypton St. yes, Krypton. I always wondered if the people on that street got prank calls involving Superman.

    Here is something odd, well maybe, there is a "John" Street and a "Robert" Street where I live. When I was a kid, I knew two brothers named John and Robert. Can you guess where they lived? That's right, on the corner of those two streets.

    You may think the parents named them that way deliberately, except one was adopted, so he probably already had his name.
