Concrete Pasta

I learned an amusing thing about the interstate system here in Salt Lake. I-15 heads south from the city, and where it meets I-80 (an east-west kind of thing) is the I-80/I-15 Split. This place is such a TARFU that it's actually called 'The Spaghetti Bowl.'
And while we're on funny names, there's a county out here called Tooele, which is pronounced 'Tawilla.'
More funny names as they occur.

TARFU... Let's see... OK, if "R" stands for "really", I get it.

Someone from a state with any such as "Natchitoches" has NO room to make fun of "Tooele."

Dude, I am from Europe, and from a country where English is not spoken as your first language. I have to say that your blog and your local mommie's input are truly enlightening as far as my language skills are concerned.
