In case you were wondering what inspired that recent post about "Cleverland", well... I was using Google Maps to get driving directions for Anthrocon next year, and lookit this:

Take exit 180B to merge onto I-77 N toward Cleverland

It seems to be less automated than you might think. The town seems to be called "Cleverland" only in that one exit description, and "Cleveland" in every other context I could generate by moving the start and end points around (including at that exit westbound instead of eastbound!)

At least they didn't route you through Intercourse, PA or Middlesex, PA.
