Hilarious Road Signs That Will Make You Take A Wrong Turn On Purpose

Ghost Town

Considering the odd choice of name for the road, we are going to guess that this sign is situated in a ghost town, or perhaps the foggy weather makes it difficult to find.

sign

Breakfast Fanatic

Call up Cap’n Crunch, it looks like someone else snatched his title from right beneath his feet! The person who came up with this road name was probably either a pregnant woman craving a crunchy  serving of bacon or a breakfast food fan who wanted to assert their love for the fried goodness in the most expressive manner. If passing by this street sign does not make you constantly daydream about the last time you had a cheat day, we don’t know what would.

sign

No Wong Or Right

Back in the day, people used to depend solely on paper maps when planning a driving route; worst comes to worst, they knew they could always ask locals for directions if they got lost along the way. However, we can understand how the road sign below could be confusing to someone who doesn’t have a map in front of them, since they could mistake the ‘Wong Way’ for ‘wrong way’, and thus wind up driving somewhere much different than they initially planned.

sign

Avoid At All Cost

It is hard to imagine a place that was designated particularly and exclusively for carrying out circumcisions, but if there were such a place, we would expect the road leading up to it to be named ‘Weiner Cutoff Road.’ For innocent travelers cruising by, it is highly doubtful that men would ever make a turn into this road on purpose, as it seems like a rather alarming warning to avoid entering at all costs – unless the thought of a little snip doesn’t frighten you.

sign

Stay Clear

You would think someone with enough means to buy their own path would call it something different than ‘Psycho’, but we are just going to assume this was some kind of a inside joke we are not in on. The other option is that whoever lives down that path likes to keep to him or herself, which is why they came up with the terrifying name for the road leading up to their house. Rest assured, no one will be tempted to find out how crazy the resident really is.

sign

Legalization This Way

Since the legalization of recreational substances in different states around America, there seems to have been a general switch in perspective when it comes to dealing with the 1970’s favorite plant and the influence it has on the brain. If anything, the sign in the picture below goes to show that a name previously used to label others negatively and create prejudice is capable of being changed. Here’s proof that it can even be chosen as a name for a drive.

sign

John Doe Avenue

The person put in charge of choosing street names for this town probably could have done a better job with this one. It does not take much creativity to come up with a good street name since most either have the word ‘main’ in them or mention a person with historical significance. As far as ‘No Name Street’ goes, it could be argued that this way, few streets could be confused with it, since this name is not likely to be repeated.

sign

Green Street

That is what you get when you let a 4th grader pick a name for a road in town. Granting the kid this opportunity was probably due to him winning some contest, but the school staff should have anticipated the unfavorable outcome of making such a promise. We bet the principal never thought this municipality collaboration would cost them the good name of the borough or dispute the reputation of the entire town, but it is safe to say we would expect someone to veto this decision.

sign

You Can Say That Again

Zzyzx (pronounced “ZY-ziks”), is formerly known as Soda Springs. Curtis Howe Springer was the man who came up with the name Zzyzx in 1944. He wanted to be the one to make up the last word in the English language, and so he established the Zzyzx Mineral Springs and Health Spa on the federal land and granted it the barely readable name it has today. Zzyzx Road is a 4.5-mile-long road which is part pavement and part dirt. The place is now the site of the Desert Studies Center.

sign

Stolen Sign

CentralMaine.com explained that the sign pictured below is no practical joke, but is likely on the verge of change. Journalist Erin Rhoda wrote the following: “The road with the intriguing name off Route 16 connecting Embden and New Portland has had its share of vandalism and controversy, enough so that town officials unsuccessfully proposed at last Saturday’s annual Town Meeting to change the name to Katie Road.” After many debates, officials weighed in and decided that the costs of continually replacing the sign are too high, so the name was changed.

sign

Quagmire’s Home

Giggetty might be a reference to the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s favorite country-folk group. Alternatively, the given name could have been assigned as a way to commemorate Glenn Quagmire, a character from Family Guy who is best known for his innuendos and infamous catchphrase, “Giggity.” Giggetty Lane is situated in a large village called Wombourne in the United Kingdom, but tourists from America cannot help but take pictures with the green sign, ignoring the perplexed looks on the locals’ faces.

sign

Road To Heaven

Officially named Virginia Canyon Road, the trail titled Oh-My-God Road connects Idaho Springs to Central City. “The road gets its name from being a two-way road that is only about a car and three-quarters wide, graveled, with no guard rails and washed out shoulders. Not only are there no guard rails, a daring glance down reveals incredibly steep cliffs,” explains DangerousRoads.com. Some roads are so steep that they require special permits and clearance to drive along it.

sign

Acceptance Is Key

Times have definitely changed, and some churches are more welcoming than even towards those they used to shun or shield themselves from. Whereas in the past some individuals could have been considered sinful for their lifestyle or preferences, now a different approach is being adopted – one that sees people for who they are and is much more accepting than could ever have been anticipated in the past. This example of ‘Gay Street’ and ‘Church Street’ side by side is the example of just that.

sign

Positive Message

‘Awesome Street’, although being a private one, is not meant to scare away any unwanted visitors. If anything, it is meant to spread some cheer and joy around the neighborhood, since this kind of name only has positive connotations attached to it. It is hard to imagine what we would choose as a name for our very own personal street, but it would probably have the same effect. After all, why not carry a positive message onto the world?

sign

No Pun Intended

Tennessee’s Farfrompoopen Road came in third in an online poll of the nation’s wildest and craziest street names sponsored by Mitsubishi Motors. The road is the only one leading to Constipation Ridge road, as ironic as that may sound, but no pun is intended here. Although some roads were hard to find on account of being private, the street names were verified by the poll held by the Car Connection website, leading us to think that it’s probably best to stay away from restaurant situated in this area.

sign

Not Welcome Here

‘Goa Way’ might not look like a hilarious name, but once read out loud, the meaning changes altogether. Not the most welcoming of names, the sign, once read aloud, rings a striking similarity to the impolite request of someone to “go away.” We would expect an introvert to hang a sign like this outside their home, or at the very least someone who does not define themselves as being a people person. But to have that sign hanging above a busy roadway? That’s just plain rude.

sign

You Don’t Have To Shout

Perhaps the person that came up with this road name was into extreme sports, and that is the story behind this rather odd choice. Can you imagine someone asking for directions? “Excuse me, would you please mind telling me where Aaaa road is?” This is a recipe for disaster and major confusion. It seems like this is the sound someone would make as they were falling down a cliff! At least the road isn’t called triple A or AA.

sign

It’s All Natural

Pe’epe’e Falls is located approximately one mile upstream from the more commonly known Rainbow Falls in Hilo, which is a large island belonging to Hawaii. Although immediately a different image comes to mind when reading the sign “Peepee Falls”, the name actually refers to beautiful waterfalls with Boiling Pots right below its stream. Several small pools and cascades make up these Boiling Pots, and it is important to keep in mind that they can be quite turbulent if a lot of water is coming down the stream.

sign

Age Before Beauty

No, this is not a fake street name. “Old Guy Road” is a very real place, situated in Queensbury, Bradford in the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, the story behind the name of this street remains unknown, and the mystery is unlikely to reveal itself anytime soon since little to no information exists online regarding the origin of the name. We cannot help but wonder if the only people who live in the houses on this road really are of a certain age…

sign

Most Wonderful Lane

They call it the most wonderful time of the year, so is it really that much of a shock that people would want to live on a street that celebrates just that? ‘Tis the season to be jolly, to be thankful for what you have and the people in your life – it only makes sense that you would want to wake up every morning in a place like that. We bet the Christmas lights during the cold months of the year are stunning in these streets.

sign

Far Far Away

We recall the character of Puss In Boots from the hilarious sequel movies of Shrek as someone who was as wicked as he was adorable, but we would not go as far as to name a street after him. If the origin of street “Bossy Boots” did not come from Shrek, this leads us to think the person who was put in charge of choosing street names did not like someone who lived down the road, so they decided to take revenge in the funniest way.

sign

Out Of Body Experience

Well, that is one way to make people see the light – but we doubt the sign meant to suggest this is the place to go if one is looking for both religious guidance and illegal substances. The out of body experience achieved by this is not only illegal, but it is also unlikely. That is probably it is most likely that the sign was actually meant to read “Methodist Bible Camp Road,” but was shortened in a way that gave off a completely different message.

sign

Comedy Central

Maybe this road leads to the comedy center of this town, or perhaps many standup comedians live nearby “Ruelle Du Ha-Ha,” because that would explain the name. This actually could be an interesting concept – having all the funny people in the area gathered in one square and improvising on the spot every evening. It would sure bring a lot of tourists to the area, and could be a great idea for a fun night out instead of the usual dinner and movie.

sign

I’d Rather Not

“Kickapoo” might be a well-known game in Fort Worth, Texas, because they chose it as a name for a drive. Additionally, the name Kickapoo came from the Kickapoo village that once existed close to the junction of the Salt Fork and Middle Fork branches of the Vermilion River. We understand the concept of wanting to stay in touch with history and eternalize the past, but does it really have to come at a price as steep as this?

sign

What’s It Look Like?

Monkey’s Eyebrow is a rustic, unincorporated community situated in Ballard County, Kentucky. Mark Usler, the man who wrote the book “Hometown Revelations,” made a list of memorable town names and explained Monkey’s Eyebrows origin by stating the following: “the legend says if you stand on the top of the hill and look down on the town, the town looks like it’s in the shape of a monkey’s eyebrow.” We cannot help but wonder, does anybody know what a monkey’s eyebrow even looks like?

sign

No Promises

Newlyweds looking for a place to buy as an investment or a house to turn into a home should probably avoid this court. We would not want to think anyone entering a marriage would do so willingly with the intention to end up being divorced – if anything, when buying a house, one probably imagines bringing children into the world and going through the journey of life together. If a couple were to live in a house on “Divorce Court,” a shared life is probably not in the cards.

sign

Rise And Shine

Rise and shine late sleepers, it is time to wake up and get that fresh brew going. Grab your adorable adopted mutt and go for a morning stroll down your favorite drive – Morningwood! It might not sound like the best place to wake up to, but there is no denying that everyone who lives on the block is more chipper in the morning. Perhaps there is something in the air that makes those who live nearby wake up with all smiles… or maybe it’s in the name.

sign

Justice League Lane

The safest streets to live on (and most likely the most expensive ones in the area) have to be these. “Clark Street” and “Kent Street” combined make the unbeatable Justice League leader, dark and shady streets protector, the invincible, heroic legend that is Superman. Who would not want to live on the streets that are a symbol of justice and protection? It would definitely keep all the villains away from the area, as they would fear the unconquerable man will catch them.

sign

Big Mistake Road

National Geographic probably got a notification about this road and came running, since it sounds like there is an abnormally large beaver roaming around the town. Perhaps even a few, and it sounds like they all reside in the same area. The grounds may prove to be fruitful for the diligent woodland creatures, or maybe the story behind the name of the rode is much less nature-loving and a lot more to do with an R rated joke we wouldn’t dare speak of.

sign

Yep, It’s Real

You may need to rub your eyes a few times, but this sign is very much real and is positioned in Fountain, near Colorado Springs. Although the city doesn’t recognize the name, homeowner Cody Driver explained that the HOA told his family they were in charge of renaming the road, and that’s what they chose. “They came up with all sorts of names like ‘Hillbilly Road’ or ‘Redneck Avenue,’ but the dog name stuck. People stop by and take pictures all the time,” Driver said.
