  • Hilarious! You know, when I lived on Broadway until recently, about 50% of the time I’d give someone my address, they would ask “Broadway Street or Drive?” Seriously, have you never heard of a street called “Broadway” before?

  • I was once traveling in the small burg of Thermopolis, Wyoming. I laughed at the rubes, for they, in their ignorance, had a “Broadway Street.” Well, who is the rube now?
