If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you. -- Oscar Wilde
The ultimate oxymoron?
"I'm on the highway to hell!"[hmmm... too easy.]"The Road to Perdition!"[still too easy]The question is 'Is it paved with good intentions, or the skulls of rotten Bishops?' (I can't remember which saint coined the latter part of the phrase, St. Cathrine maybe?)
The Good Intention popped up from it's long burrowing, looked around and proclaimed "I knew I should have taken that left toin in Alberquirky!"
Can't top those.Cheers
Although everybody knew that route 999 needed some traffic control, nobody could decide the most cost effect means to do so...until a vandal rotated the sign one day....
You just know that the traffic on that road is going to be hell! It could be a promo for an old movie. "Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in Road to Hell"Bing and Bob never made an on the road show raising so much Cain...

"Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia, this way."
I thought it was the floor of hell, not the road to hell, that was supposed to be paved with the skulls of dead bishops. I've seen the line attributed to St. John Chrysostom.Obligatory caption: "We really need to do some pavement work, honest!"But I have to bow to Dcn. Patrick.
That's the one!
Elmer, are you sure the man said this is the way to Helena? Maybe you should stop and ask again.
Waking up after a few loud bumps, some jarring, and a lot of dust the bleary driver thought it serendipitous to find himself on Route 999.
It's a sad thing, when even the road signs are telling you that it would be an elevation to get to Hell. Oh how have I sunk so far?
Actually, Baron et al, I seem to recall that the road to Hell is paved with unbought stuffed dogs. (The Sun Also Rises)Doesn't look like this one is paved at all, truth be told. "What a beastly way to travel!""As it turns out, it's not the number of a man after all.""Highway Commission. Lucifer speaking.""It was then that Father Patrick realized that this was going to be a very difficult parish."
"Life in the Fast Lane" on the way to "Hotel California" or "Get Your Kicks on Six-Sixty-Six!" (Sorry --- I'm OLD!)
Last stop for $3.99/gal gas, next 50 miles.
That's the last time I ask your cousin Nero for directions!or Shouldn't we have taken that narrow road on back a bit?
An attempt to take the road less traveled went horribly wrong.
