I'm No Sherlock Holmes But...

I was taking a walk and developed a theory about the folks who named the streets in Rogers Park. They may have been pranksters. There are two streets that rhyme with names for male and female genitalia; Estes and Lunt. I'll let you figure it out. There is only one street that lies between them, Greenleaf. That is a rather clever coincidence. I am going to see if I can find further evidence in other street names.

I thought I was the only one with the perverted mind...

Our friends live at the corner of Paulina & Lunt. It's always caused me to chuckle to myself. I've often wondered if anyone else found that funny.

There are two parallel streets in my neighborhood Best and Ball.

Why they couldn't intersect I'll never know.

My junior year in Dekalb I lived on the corner of High and Normal.

You know the joke, right? Punchline is Paulina, Regina, and Lunt?

Thomas, I know the joke. It's older than me I think.

Ed and P Dawg, do High and Ball intersect? If so, we need to open a bar there.
