Unintentionally Hilarious Decisions Made By Cities
I used to live in a little known shitty chemical plant-driven city called Lake Charles - named so because of its location around the Luxurious lake of the same name. So besides the fact that the named the city after the lake it is right next to (it can't be the only city guilty of this), they have a history of poorly planned names.
For example, back in 2008 a well known doctor named Micheal DeBakey died. He was recognized for pioneering a pump that allowed open heart surgery to be possible. He also performed those open heart surgeries. You get the idea. Anyway, turns out he is from Lake Charles. So to memorialize him, the city decided to name the street that the hospital was located on after him (I can't remember the name of the street before except that it was something Drive). The result is probably the most unintentionally hilarious street name in the history of southern gaffs. Now everyone in Lake Charles now knows exactly where to find the hospital. Just follow the sign that says, in all caps:
DR MICHEAL DEBAKEY DR
No one in Lake Charles can take anything seriously anymore and I'm pretty sure the sign resulted in everything sucking even harder after that.
