Bombastic living

I really think that they get Las Vegas street names by randomly picking words out of a dictionary without checking to read the definition. Why else is there really a “Bombastic Court” on the west side?

Would you want to live at an address that proclaimed you to be “marked by or given to bombast: pompous, overblown?”

If you get bored, Vegas geography Mad Libs are fun–just mix and match the made-up street names by picking two (or even three) words from a pool like this one:

sky violet mountain desert timber oak river ivory willow walnut lake valley dusk rose spring royal sierra creek vista oak painted

and then concluding with one from here:

court way lane drive

Try it–it’s fun. And you couldn’t do worse than some of the names we’ve already got.
