The oleander is a toxic plant not advisable to eat and Galveston named itself after it. Other peculiar town planning moments include calling alternate east-west avenues after the letters of the alphabet, and naming the streets between them “halves”.

Things could grow complicated if the law asked for a fixed address and you replied “I live in O Half, Galveston south of O”. They could answer “Oh haha, what plant have you been smoking” and that could cause a problem if you didn’t know.
