Hawaiian Palms? Some people should not be in charge of naming buildings.

  1. oh....just...oh...

    i wouldn't even want to step in there.

    and they must've been drunk when they came up with that name, b/c who would believe that that name would convince anyone to stay there?
    see, drunk.

    I live in Hawaii, and we generally do not keep our dumpsters in front of the residence.
    Aloha, MJ

  8. I should go find my pictures of my two favorite subdivision entrance signs: "Morningwood" and "Gaywood". For real! I have to wonder just how drunk the developers were when they came up with those names. "Hawaiian Palms" ain't nothin' by comparison.

  10. It looks exactly like the motel our family stayed in during our vacations to Ocean City Maryland 75 years ago. OR 100.

  11. A friend of mine once lived in an apartment complex called The Debbie. Adjacent were The Susie and The Shelley. The developer proudly named his apartment buildings after his daughters.
    My friend chose wisely, I believe living in The Debbie bestowed her address with a certain cachet the others lacked.
    I love this photo, dumpster aside, the colors and composition remind me of a David Hockney painting.
