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).
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!
I guess that dirty squirrel Olivia Newton John was saying more than I knew with Morning Glory and the Midnight Sun.
What the heck are they talking about?
Well that is a new one on me.
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.
How can anyone be expected to progress from the shadows of NPT? Shame!
Rule 34. Simple.
I learned something today....LOL.
And all this time I thought Morning Glory was a flowering vine....Idiots..
You ain’t seen nothing yet. Wait ‘til they find out what “Morning Vista” really means!
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.
I learned two things today. One: what you said. The second: we’re surrounded by idiots!
People are always adding 2 letters to the sign...
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.
ANY TUMESCENSE is O.K. by me, and I don’t care whether it is nocturnal or not!!
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.
Wait! This isn’t a Semmen’s?
Though petunia sounds sexier.
Plus, Morning Glory is a commonly abused hallucinogen...
Well, with that thought process: Couldn’t one’s Morning Vista be of their Morning Glory?
“Natural Pencil Tune Scene”? Better put on the old reading glasses.....Godfrey Daniels!......the things they vote on at city council meetings.
I live on Babcock Road. Should I be worried?
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.
I thought a Morning Glory was a type of flower.
lol. That’s one HOT glory hole!
There are numerous Morningwood Lanes, Drives, Streets, etc in the country.
Guess I’ll move to Lehi if this is all they have to worry about.
That close to The Grand Tetons they let just about anything else pass...
‘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.’
It was also a movie with Rachel McAdams and Harrison Ford. I’ll have to watch it again....I think I must have missed something.
ROTFL. Yeah, we’re surrounded by idiots! It’s unbelievable!
Happy, HEALTHY, hopeful and I pray, “prosperous” New Year to you and your precious family, dearest glock!
Lehi Councilman Mark Johnson changes last name over sexual connotation!
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?
I give up on the human race.
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.
Wonder if any of them owns a Hummer?
Thus went the “pup tent” !
This friggin country has lost it’s ever lovin mind..... Gheeesh !
Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning
No one could be sweeter than my sweetie when I meet her in the morning
Where the morning glories
Twine around the door
Whispering pretty stories
I long to hear once more......
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!
Sounds tumescently female to me.
Thought morning glories were flowers. Their dirty minds cannot even keep the beautiful names for things.
