Whats even funnier is somewhere in MI (I think) is a exit sign for Big Beaver Rd. The exit sign # is 69. lol So when youre driving down the road you see "exit 69: Big Beaver Rd". lol

A tiny little suburban municipality here in the Twin Cities is called Medicine Lake. Sounds gross, doesn't it? Also, not a town, but there was an ethnic retaurant in Minneapolis called Perfume River. I liked that name.
