The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

21 November 2003


A number of property owners in Park County, Wyoming are asking that the county commissioners do something about the name of the road that runs past their land.

Park County has adopted an alphanumeric system for roads that previously bore no name, and the one that's causing all the stir is County Road 6FU. Residents are embarrassed; vandals steal the road signs as a matter of course.

The commissioners have asked for suggestions for a new name.

How about "Bite Me Boulevard"?

I didn't understand the "naughty" nature of it until I read the first instinct was that fans of HBO's "Six Feet Under" (abbreviated by hipsters to 6FU) were swiping the sign.

But then, I don't know that Wyoming has too many 6FU fans.

Wyoming, having a smaller population than Oklahoma City fercryingoutloud, doesn't have too many fans of anything, I suspect.

And there are such things as regional variations. The perfectly-innocent Oklahoma license tag on my car was greeted with astonishment in New Jersey, where that particular three-letter combination has presumably been declared verboten by Trenton's legal linguists.
