I recently found this while searching google maps, looking for roleplay inspiration...

I laughed so hard.

Apparently someone likes Watership Down enough to name a street after it.

(located in Riverton, Utah)

Images (c) Google, just wanted to show them LOL

Me too actually! It's quite a bit more north but that's why I found it so funny.  Here, of all places in the world? Why? xD

I'm gonna tell my parents.

Heh. They even have a street called "Big Var Way". That's sounds almost like "Bigwig's Way", a name of tv-series episode. :D

The city must have fans of WSD on their payroll to get the streets named after things like that.  Wonder what the people think of living on "Fiver Circle".

I can picture the people living there thinking "What on earth is a pipkin/fiver/watership down?"
With most of the streets in a grid and not having proper names just stuff like 13200 South, I can see so much confusion with these, even the cul-de-sacs are named like that; look south of Fiver Cir for an example.

Wow.
