You're about to learn the number one place you're sure to find a "Psycho Path" and why there's "Kno Place" like home, as well as the other oddest street names across the country.
Alabama: Booger Hollow Road
We dare you not to snigger at the name of this thoroughfare in the town of Dadeville that may bring to mind the picture of that kid in kindergarten who ate paste. Are you chuckling while reading this sign? You won't be able to control yourself if you read these town names you won't be able to say with a straight face.
Alaska: Yellowsnow Road
We can only guess that many, many dogs live in the city of Fairbanks. Other Alaskan contenders for the title of "Funniest Street" are Stubborn German Court, Tribulation Trail, and Aggravation Alley.
Arizona: Bucket of Blood Street
According to Atlas Obscura, "Around the 1880s the town of Holbrook, Arizona was a wretched hive of scum and villainy where outlaws and cowboys could indulge their drinking, gambling, and general rakishness. Needless to say, gun fights were frequent and casual." It was after one of those fights—maybe about "horse thievin'" or was it a card game?—that Bucket of Blood Street earned its moniker.
Arkansas: Farfrompoopen Road
This street name almost sounds scary! It may or may not be near the Crescent Hotel in Arkansas, one of the 10 real-life haunted houses you need to see.
California: Zzyzx Road
When last we wrote about Zzyzx, a town in Southern California, it was to tell you how to pronounce it. Now we've learned that there's a street named "Zzyzx" too. Naturally, it's the road to Zzyzx, and hence, "Zzyzx Road." Check out the other difficult to pronounce town names in every state.
Colorado: A Dog Will Lick His Butt But Won't Eat A Pickle Road
This is not a statement of fact, necessarily. It is, however, the name of a road in Fountain, Colorado. At least that’s how the people that live there seem to feel about it. Unfortunately, the City of Fountain does not include it on its official map, according to Colorado’s News Channel 13.
Connecticut: Drury Lane
On its face, Drury Lane in West Hartford doesn't seem that funny. But as any preschooler will tell you, it's where that famed Muffin Man of nursery rhyme lives. Wonder if there's a wall nearby where we can find Humpty Dumpty? Want more American trivia? Start with these astonishing facts you never knew about each of the 50 states.
Delaware: Slaughter Neck Road
If you want to get to Slaughter Beach in Lincoln, you have to go by way of Slaughter Neck Road, and you'll probably think to yourself that both the street and the beach are named after some legendary battle, perhaps dating back to the Revolutionary War. Well, no one really knows for sure, but it's more likely the name came from the dying of horseshoe crabs after they've come ashore to spawn. Gross.
Florida: I Dream of Jeannie Way
Before there was Shimmer and Shine, there was Barbara Eden. If you're too old to know the former and too young for the latter, no worries, we'll explain: I Dream of Jeannie was a popular television show about a NASA man who picked up a bottle on the beach, and inside, there was a genie named Jeannie! It all took place in the Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral area. Let us know if your wish is granted when you visit. Don't miss the best free tourist attraction in every state.
Georgia: Five Forks Trickum Road
Visitors to Gwinett County may think they're counting wrong—but there are in fact currently only four forks on this road (in decades past it once had a five-fork intersection). Well, that explains part of the name. But what of "Trickum"? According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, local lore is that this comes from a shop owner who once lived there, who often swindled customers out of their money.
