    I bet this will screw up the Apple maps app even further.

    There will be a celebratory event on Sunday afternoon with Paul Ryan (not the politician) drawing a Lois Lane sketch for a commemorative print alongside a Lois Lane Lookalike Context.

    Nah. You'd think so by the spelling but it's pronounced way different.

    It's says Worcester but in reality it's Wustah.

    I thought it was more of "Werster", but I spent more time hanging out around Boston than in it. (A buddy of mine went to Brandeis in Waltham, so I'd hang out in that neck of the woods from time to time . . . also use to go to Acton a lot for 4th of July.)

    Here's the text:
    Comic store That’s Entertainment have managed to get a small road that runs along the side of their store named Lois Lane from the less impressive Marmon Place.

    The request was made in March 2011 by the owners of the store. They weren’t exactly faster than a speeding bullet in coming forwards, but the signage was approved in August 2012. That’s Entertainment will pay for the sign and to have it installed.

    There will be a celebratory event on Sunday afternoon with Paul Ryan (not the politician) drawing a Lois Lane sketch for a commemorative print alongside a Lois Lane Lookalike Context.

    I wonder if they’ll acccept costumes that make people look like a small stretch of private road?
    The article was posted Dec. 26th, and they also had a picture of the comic book store's sign:
