and then gave them a street map of a small town, edited so that as many streets as possible shared the name:


Ah, I see you've been to Kitchener/Waterloo, Ontario, where the deranged and twisted Mennonites who built the city named every street after a different king, and decided to shorten it for convenience to "King Street".

King Street runs north, south, east, AND west, and IS Highway 8 as well as paralleling Highway 8 and crossing Highway 8 in three places. And that's just King Street, not King's Street, King Avenue, the King Parkway, King Boulevard, or any of a dozen other streets. And, of course, the similar number (but, thankfully, not distance) of Queen streets.

The natives think this is all very funny. I want to stab them with a fork.

where can I find a map of this? I feel the urge to have it printed on a t-shirt.
