I've seen quite a few strange ones: Memory Lane: Santa Ana, Ca. Zyzzyx Road (I think that's how it's spelled): I-15 in California just before the Nevada border. Stinking Creek Rd.: I-75 in Tennessee, near Kentucky. Oh, and I once lived on Pleasant Street, which is in the middle of the 'hood so it really wasn't very pleasant.
