A street named DORK

30 posts in this topic

Okay.

I was out driving about, on my way to a possible source of mulch, etc., in Pico Rivera, California, when

WHOA! Does that sign say what I think it says?

:blink:

This begged other questions.

Like, if this was named after someone, then WHO?

Are they still alive?

Or, was it one of those cases where a real estate developer let his kids name all the streets? :lol:

In any event, who lives on Dork Street?

I turned the Green Monster down to take a look.

Nothing particularly dorky here. Looks like one of those private roads like the one I live on.

Dork is not a long street, and it ended at Amistad.

For the folks that live in these places, I'm sure it all gets a bit tedious. Especially as many names go back centuries. If you're a business, club or organisation - for example, the Muff Diving Club in County Donegal, N. Ireland - then they probably have the last laugh. Free publicity, and all that.
