LOL, you guys need to say it properly. It's "take 75, and get off on Big Beaver. Keep going until you get to the mall."

Believe me, I've heard it all already. I even have the tshirt somewhere.

Where I live. I'm pretty boring otherwise. I usually say "yup, I get off there everyday on the way home from work." ;)

That you take Big Beaver to get to Big Bone Lick smells fishy to me. Better take that one with a grain of salt.

(geez, I'm going to regret posting this....)

If you're gonna play the name game, the Austrians win hands down:



They embrace their notoriety to the point of marketing an Helles beer called Fucking Hell. Unfortunately, it's not that good and even one bottle almost guarantees a splitting headache in the middle of the night.

I have no idea why it is the German's who are in the title of the article as this is an Austrian village.

if you're wondering, it's pronounced "Fooking", at least that's what the locals claim. They probably claim the other place is called Vank...

And it's, from what I could tell, a 3 farm dorf with no bar - ride in, take the picture, ride out. On the plus side, it's really close to the Alps, Germany, Italy and Switzerland are a stone's throw away.

Yup, done many a ride through the Alps and people always want a pic with that sign. It really is pronounced with a "oo" sound.

The color coordination of the suit and bike is abominable. Fail. Unless you're an Iowa Cyclones fan.
