It used to be Meaningless Avenue, but the mayor renamed it.
Or was that Meaningless Dribble?

I think it was once Meaningless Dribble, however, grown ups dribbling all over themselves isn't very professional.

Yes, we are sophisticated, here at the ranch, we do not dribble. (Sorry no snob smiley)
We prefer to call it drivel, cause it sounds soooo much more classy!
