Data_wtf

'Bout that time them Duke boys had some data scrubbing to set to...

I need to perform address validation at work sometimes. Customers submit addresses that they can't get map coordinates for, and I need to look into why.

I received a new spreadsheet this morning, and this was the first address in the list:

> Boss Hogg Rd, Morgantown, KY

Seriously?

Even more disturbing, I found a Boss Hog Rd in Kentucky (one G), and a Boss Hogg Rd in Mississippi. I'm not an expert on that show, but wasn't Boss Hogg the bad guy? What's next? Let's brainstorm, shall we?

* Michael, I'm Almost Out Of Fuel Ln.
* Ain't Gettin' On No Plane With That Crazy Fool Murdock Ave.
* That Ninja Who Kept Harassing Lee Van Cleef St.

I should design a subdivision...
