Lehi changes road name over sexual connotation
Fox 13, Utah ^ | 2 Jan 2013

Posted on 01/02/2013 8:01:01 PM PST by glock rocks

LEHI, Utah — The Lehi City Council recently approved a request to change the name of one of its roads, and the reason might be a sexual connotation. The city council unanimously approved the renaming of Morning Glory Road to Morning Vista Road in a December 11 meeting. The name change was requested by a company called Xactware, who is constructing a new building on the street. Lehi City Council meeting notessay that the company requested the name change to fit with their "International Corporate image." In article from the Daily Herald, Lehi Councilman Mark Johnson says the company was concerned about the term "morning glory" and its association with one of its unofficial definitions. "Morning glory," as defined by the Urban Dictionary, has a sexual connotation. The Urban Dictionary's definition is a crude description of an actual medical phenomenon called nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT).

Glory be!

A veritable vista hole these folk are offering to their corporate overseers. Personally, I welcome my corporate masters!

Glory, er, nocturnal penile tumescence be, to our new glorious, er, vistivous saviors!

If you pee in the night, welcome your overlords!

Yep.

I guess that dirty squirrel Olivia Newton John was saying more than I knew with Morning Glory and the Midnight Sun.

Everything has a sexual connotation with people. It’s a flower, also a vine. Without checking, I will guess that there are roads close by that are also named after .......flowers or trees.

....or perhaps they just went ahead and named one Erectile Dysfunction Blvd....in front of an Industrial Park.

I thought it was only a “morning glory” when it lasts 4 hours or more.

Well, what’s up with Mr. Johnson taking this task under his belt. I live near Climax, Michigan. It was so named due to the high elevation between the east and west shores of Michigan. Nothing more or less.

Silly me! Until now, I always thought of morning glories as these rather attractive little flowers:

Apparently some goofball thinks Morning Glory means Morning Wood.

Good grief just because some idiot has a dirty mind now we can’t even name streets after flowers.

I used to work with a guy who could make a sexually suggestive joke out of about anything a person would say.

He was actually a decent guy and good worker but at times it got a little bothering having to watch every word you said around him.

Those are petunias, not morning glories.

Though petunia sounds sexier.

In the Bewitched TV show....Samantha and Darrin Stephens lived on Morning Glory Circle. Now they will have to edit all those episodes.

Of course, with Darren #2, that would have another meaning, I guess

On the other hand, isn’t Mourning Glory the antonym of Morning Glory?

Talk show host Hugh Hewitt often greets his callers, saying “morning glory,” and they reply, “evening grace”—or vice versa. I didn’t know that this had a sexual connotation.

‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’

‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.’

Might as well name it: Pee The Bed Road.

Just what were these people thinking? Morning Glory? That means an erection? Wait, and that’s a bad thing? Wait, that means a morning erection?

A morning erection is probably as natural as the sunrise. What the hell are these people thinking?

No, wait. Not only have I never heard the term, I think Morning Glory is a wonderful name, and a wonderful vine, which attracts hummingbirds. Is the Lehi council comprised of fourteen-year-olds, sitting around making fart jokes while their wi-fi reboots so they can X-box some more?

If they didn’t Xactware was going to move to a city in Pennsylvania instead.

Either Bird-in-Hand, Climax, Jugtown, Intercourse, Noodle Doosie or Puseyville.

Perhaps Councilman "Johnson" ought to go to Urban Dictionary and see how it defines his last name.

I work 5 miles north of Lehi. Perhaps I’ll drop in on the city council and surrender tomorrow morning, and submit encriminating evidence. It must be my civic duty, yes?

Morning Glory. I live just north, in Salt Lake County, and I have morning glory vines all down my east fence for the hummingbirds. I never thought of them as perverts... but now I’ll keep a wary eye out for them.

We need hummingbird control!

I know Leni, it’s like society has slipped (skidded) into middle-school mentality mode. Perhaps the aim of public schools is to develop the standard of thought around the 14 year old model.

It appears to have been very successful. Maybe I can get transcripts of the Lehi Council meetings, and assemble a montage of fart jokes to sell on eBay, and send all the proceeds to FR for the new thon!

Thought morning glories were flowers. Their dirty minds cannot even keep the beautiful names for things.
