Lombard Street in San Francisco

We love listening to Bill Cosby, so when we saw Lombard Street, we were so excited! I've quoted the Driving in San Francisco bit so often growing up, and now the kids are also saying "Come around, idiot, come around!" It really does go straight up, then straight down. (Driving in San Francisco is on the Why is There Air? CD)
After the hilarious bit about the straight up, then a stop sign at the top, here's Cosby's take on the street back down:
"They built a street up there called Lombard Street that goes straight down, and they're not satisfied with you killing yourself that way—they put grooves and curves and everything in it, and they put flowers there where they've buried the people that have killed themselves. Lombard Street, wonderful street."
