Imagine writing a letter or sending a package to someone who lives on Oklahoma Ave. in Oklahoma City located in Oklahoma County in the state of Oklahoma!
It's one of the few, maybe even the only U.S. address that contains the same street, city, county, and state.
Now there could be other places with this similar address pattern but we still get the trophy. If you live on this street in Oklahoma City I bet your mail or deliveries never get lost.
I stumbled across this little-known fun fact while browsing about on Reddit earlier today.
Sure it's more useless facts, but if I ever find myself at a loss for words at the water cooler I'll have something to contribute to the conversation.
A well-placed random fact while engaged in meaningless human interaction is the perfect way to leave those around you in a daze of confusion providing you ample time to grab a drink, snack, and retreat.
Not only do we have an address that has the same name as the street, city, county, and state we also have several funny street names in the state as well. A lot of them are nearby in OKC and the surrounding area.
Have you ever been on Edge of the Earth Road in Lexington, OK? We even have a Lost St. and a None Such Rd. And those are just a few of the crazy names you'll find while traveling around the Sooner State.
