The best street name ever is Puppy Smith Street. It's a small side street in Aspen. I have no idea who the hell Puppy Smith was, but I am so positive it couldn't have been anybody but a cranky old prospector. Who had a lot of dogs. And found a silver lode or something.

Google didn't turn up anything right off the bat, and I am apprehensive about delving deeper in so as to not ruin the mystique that is Puppy Smith Street.

Okay, now I want to live in Aspen on Puppy Smith Street.

It would beat living in Nashville, IN on Greasy Creek Road. Or Scarce O Fat Ridge Road, my other favorite out that way.

In the 80's I lived on Weesuck Ave. in East Quogue, NY.

How could they? How could they not know?!

Honestly! It's like Mr. and Mrs. Head naming their son Richard!

It was hysterical. The locals didn't seem to put two-and-two together, but their children certainly did. The second "E" was often spray painted out and a favorite Halloween prank was to steal the sign. We lived there less than two years and in my mind the sign was only up a third of the time.

True story: I was a Long Island hardcore basement show in Port Jefferson (not near EQ) in the mid-90s and the kid had a Weesuck Ave sign on the wall.

I am pretty sure that a Puppysmith is a master craftsman on the payroll of Cruella de Vil.

I'm just imagining hammered-steel dogs being created from a fiery forge.

Wasn't Puppysmith the name of the pet store in Harvard Square?

(This is a local joke! For locals only!)

Or an apprentice of the Meatsmith in the Kingdom of Loathing.

That's almost as cool as Forty Fort, PA.

I enjoyed Crazy Cove, located somewhere on the shore of Lake Erie, I believe.

Ragged Ass Road is my favourite street name of all time. Yes indeed, it exists.

I'm happy knowing that, when the mood takes me, I can stroll along The Land of Green Ginger.

My favorite street is Bacon Switch Road in Wichita Falls, Texas. Always makes me hungry for bacon. Mmm...bacon!

"What's that about bacon?"

for best results, Psychonauts, imagine this old man coming out of your ear.
