1. In traveling around, I've noticed some signs across the country that tickled my (admitedly warped) sense of humor. Since I'm usually driving alone, thought I'd bring them here to share:
    "Bloody Shins Trailhead" - just where I want to hike...
    In Utah a hwy sign: "Caution, Eagles on Highway" - sort of brings to mind an MTV type scenario.
    Going across the Navajo reservation - "Congested Area" There are maybe 6 houses in sight (and you can see a long way!)
    In Colorado - a historical marker marking the site of the Alferd(not misspelled) Packer Massacre (a Donner Party type scenario), basically saying "this is where he ate them" Sort of strikes me as the equivalent of putting Jeffrey Dahmer's refrigerator in the Smithsonian (told you I was warped)
    In Alabama I saw a restaurant named "The Boar's Butt", in New Mexico one named "The Trough", and again in Colorado one named "The Out House". Just does wonders for MY appetite!
    Anyone else seen any they want to share?

    Have not see all the signs but I love the song A Night On Dildo by the Arrogant Worms

    oh Newfoundland, oh Newfoundland, the island in the sea
    I love you oh so very much I joined the ministry
    to show you people round the rock when tourist season is here
    although in my opinion it's a gem throughout the year

    well if you're one for swimming don't think it's out of reach
    you can go and take a dip along Grosse Water Beach
    I know the name's misleading, it's quite a problem here
    instead let's go to Goobies and have ourselves a beer

    from Woody's Point to Come By Chance to good ol' Fairyland
    come take a look at Gander the lac is mighty grand
    don't let the names deceive you Newfoundland's might fine
    so spend the night in Dildo if you think you've got the time.

    Well you can go to Blow Me Down before it gets too dark
    oh sorry ma'am I should have said that's our provincial park
    there' also Whoop-it Harbour or maybe Butterpot
    or maybe I'll just hit the pub in Teething like a shot
    we'll sail on Quitti Vidi and look at Joe Batt's Arm
    there's Placentia and there's Calvin there so full of charm
    get married in kilbride, have a party in Hate Bay
    or have some screech in Fogo and forget about the day

    This is an actual place, Dildo Newfoundland. They have an annual Dildo festival every year, and the guest of honor is Captain Dildo. Bob and Tom have a song about the old captain on one of their CDs. If you care to pursue it farther, go to

    I don't know why, but the "RUNAWAY TRUCK LANE" signs in Colorado never fail to amaze me. There's actually lanes for "RUNAWAY 18 wheelers"...they've burned up their brakes coming down a mountain.

    And in the Far out parts of west Texas, there are signs that say,

    "Your speed is being monitored by helicopters and light planes." (not by radar)

    (that's where you can drive 50-100 miles and never see another vehicle.....or 2-3 at most. )

    And , it's where you can see 20 miles down the road... it's also the area where this saying originated:

    "I believe if I had a tuna can to stand on, I could see for another 100 miles".

    Fiery Gizzard Recreation Area. Makes me wonder how it got its name. It's located on US 41 between Jasper and Tracy City, TN.
