    Oh those dirty, dirty flowers.  Crawling around all over the place and opening up their reproductive organs for the world to see every morning.

    In other news, plant species to be exterminated to save our children.

  3. Jorpho says:

    The technology company will surely take umbrage to the unfavorable associations of the replacement name, “Morning Vista”, and subsequently insist on a change to “Morning Seven”.

  4. Spieguh says:

    I hope the new name, “Nocturnal Emissions Boulevard,” is less scandalous for them. 

  5. For those of us more sheltered types:

    To awaken with a boner so hard a cat couldn’t scratch it , otherwise known as to sleep in a tent, or to have a dawn horn.

    Rob, excellent title.

    Somebody somewhere once pointed out that any string of syllables can be given a sexual meaning. KnowwhatImean? Wink wink, nudge nudge. Saynomore. Say. No. More.

    What is wrong with a street name that indicates they are ready to go, early, each and every day? Or a flower?

      Because “road” could be construed to be “rode”, which in turn can be used as a sexual innuendo.  They’ll probably change it to the more innocuous “Morning Glory Strip that Things Go Back and Forth On”.

    The other day my spouse wrote some copy that used the words “happy ending” in a non-massage-related context. Some people were offended. So no more happy endings, for anyone, anymore.

      In the early 90s I worked for Friendly’s Ice Cream (a US restaurant franchise on the east coast, somewhat famous – deservedly so IMO – for their ice cream). Their generic ice cream dessert was called a Happy Ending. It was one scoop of vanilla ice cream in a bowl, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and half a maraschino cherry on top. It was surprisingly good.

      Sadly, I can’t imagine it still has the same name.

    A bit of a stretch to say this is common enough knowledge to make changing the name an issue.  Now if it was name “Morning Wood Road” I could understand.

    What a bunch of overly-sensitive weenies.

    Whelp, off to Urban Dictionary to create an entry for “Exactware

    • GawainLavers says:

      Exactware: a cast of one’s own genitals, used for self stimulation.  A union of narcisissm and Ouroboros requiring much less flexibility.

    and was the new name “Santorum Road”?

  13. Deidzoeb says:

    Graduates of Arcadia University, formerly Beaver College.

    Let’s start referring to double penetration as a “Washington”.

    Idiot bureaucrat was actually thinking of “morning wood.” Will still receive paycheck.

    Credit where credit is due: the Dictionary of American Regional English (opportunity for Amazon link!) found this term during its research. As I recall, a woman in Vancouver, BC is  credited with using these words to describe an upon-waking erection.

    Georgia O’Keeffe Boulevard?
