Street life


Going back a decade or so ago, the town in which I grew up decided to name a new street after Bob Geldof. I thought this was scraping the bottom of the barrel. It seems I was wrong.

As you can see from the genuine newspaper clipping above, we in the UK have now begun naming streets after medical practices.

So after Dental Close, where can we go next? Orthodonty Way, perhaps? Chiropody Street? Gynaecology Grove? Rhinoplasty Road?

Yes, great names all, coming soon to a housing development near you. What other suggestions can you make?

Who was it who said that the properties in Bunyan Road were having difficulty selling because it sounded too much like Bunion?

Wait...I just realized that the house is going for almost a 1/2 million pounds! Is that right? That's over a $1M CDN! Holy crap.

That's an expensive home!

OK, maybe you guys can clear something up for me...I heard just yesterday that property in the UK doesn't really belong to anyone? You lease your property from the government?

Liposuction Lane?
