Street Name Shame – Epic Fail or the sign or pun loving town planner?

You have to take your hat off to Birmingham Council for allowing this pun-tastic street name.

I’ve used Maps.Live.com to provide a very clear image of the offending street.

Bader Walk

So… obviously we have a flying theme running in this estate. Hawker Drive, Sopwith Croft, Concord Drive, Hurricane Drive and… “Bader Walk”.

Just in case you don’t know, Douglas Bader was a famous World War Two fighter pilot who crashed his plane and lost BOTH HIS LEGS. He managed to learn to walk again, and indeed fly again, by using artificial legs.

So, really…. Douglas Bader walk!!
