What is your favorite route name?

Post by gripster » Thu Oct 22, 2009 4:17 pm

There are some great names for routes out there, and many of them are found in the RRG. So I am curious, what are some of the best names for routes that you have ever heard?

Rock and Ice has a little print up about Ten Sleep. I like those route names:

Nowhere Man Puking Yarn

Aunt Jemima's Bisquick Thunderdome

The Incredible Horsecock.

Days or Rage. My route. I named it after my younger years when I was driven by rage and anger. Now I'm just driven by having fun and wanting to get better.

Some of the many I've heard and appreciated over the years:

Orgasm/ Orgasm Direct
Weasels Ripped My Flesh
Edging Skills or Hospital Bills
Foaming at the Crotch
Semi-Automatic Chrome-Plated Enema Syringe

and perhaps my favorite:
