Orlando:

Red Bug Lake Rd
Turkey Lake Rd

One a side note, I think Dripping Springs Texas is a weird town name.

Here in the borough of Brooklyn, there is a street known as Force Tube Avenue. The name actually has an historic basis: it was once the location of an aqueduct through which water was pumped. But let's face it--when you say the name, it kind of makes you wince!

There is a very small town just outside of Orlando called Christmas, FL. It started out as the sight of a fort during the second seminole war in the early 1800's called "fort christmas".

Here are some street names in the town:

Blitzen Ave.
Comet St.
Cupid Ave.
Antler St.
St. Nicholas Ave.

It also has a post office, so a lot of people from the Orlando area travel to the town to mail out their Christmas cards so they have the "Christmas" postmark on them.

Most streets around here are boring -- the only weird one I can think of is Bellefontaine (pronounced Bell-Fountain). Olathe, Kansas, has a major street called Black Bob Road.

If you travel to Alaska, you'll find some rural areas that allow people to name the gravel drives to their homes. I assume this is the case, because somewhere northeast of Fairbanks, I encountered street signs for "1985 Chicago Bears Dr." and "Yellow Snow Rd."
