The FUNNIEST STREET NAME in Utah…According to Readers Digest

There are people who say, “let’s just make numbers, that’s what Brigham had in mind.” And they say that because when U2 came to sing at the Winter Olympics in 2002, he sang “Where the Streets Have No Name” and Utahn got goosebumps because it applied to their state, because Utah has street names like “1200 South” instead ‘. from “Oak.”

People from Utah look at people from back east or from any other state as if they were cavemen. Street names should convey directional information, they say, and not just a generic tree or to an old general or something.

Well, that makes sense to me, but I’m getting confused with this grid system. It all looks the same. Every intersection is similar. And I’m too stupid to understand it.

That said, not every road in Utah is named “2100 E.”

Neighborhood roads often have a theme. Like Lord of the Rings, or Ivy League colleges, or body parts.

They can become quite smart and funny. According to Readers Digest, the funniest street name in Utah is “Wayne’s World Drive” in Draper, UT.

‘You could say this street in Draper is named after the Saturday evening live a sketch-turned-film franchise. Or you could say it was named after local farmer Wayne Ballard by developer Terry Diehl, who bought the land from Wayne and turned it into Corner Canyon Estates.” (Full article from Readers Digest)

Interesting. It sounds like it’s a shoutout to the farmer and references the movie at the same time. I loved Wayne’s world when I was a child. I’m sure if I went back and watched it now it wouldn’t be as good. Anyway, if you know of a better street name in Utah, let me know in the comments.
