There's a Conejos Drive nearby. Dunno why, but rabbit sounds funny in any language.

Another childhood favorite was Horseblock and Granny, off the Long Island Expressway around Medford. Used to be a sign visible from the highway that read Horseblock and Granny. Always cracked me up. Apparently the signs have changed so Google street view only shows Horseblock Road now.

Not actually a street name, but a relatively well-known exit sign:



(It's two city names, Boring and Oregon City.)

Saw one in Rio Rancho, NM called Yippee Calle. I'm not completely is wasn't a private enclave instead of a city street, but give the Calle the Spanish pronunciation and it comes out as Yippee cay ay.

Don't have a pic of it anymore but I ran into a "Manlove Rd." in rural Illinois. It was on my Garmin GPS...I've tried to search for it on google maps but it never came up with anything so it could have just been some sort of Garmin easter egg of sorts.
