Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft to get her own Street

As if having a palatial mansion with a training course and butler wasn’t enough, in Derby, UK, the city council is trying to get a couple of names for a new road, and one of the choices in the poll they’ve set up is “Lara Croft Way”. You don’t have to be a UK resident or in the UK to vote.

The other choices are Eagle Way, Griffon Way, John Flamsteed Way, Mercian Way
Merlin Way, Sorocold Way, and Steve Bloomer Way.

Two of these choices will be used for two stretches of the road, so Lara already has quite a good chance of at least getting one of them. We all have until January 31st, 2010 to vote, so get to it. The poll is bottom right on the page.

Who did I vote for? Who do you think? Lara’s all ready got 97% of the vote, so it’s pretty much a given right now. 22730 people have voted so far, most of them for Lara. 1% voted for Merlin Way. There’s all ready a Merlin Way in Derby, and Merlin might not refer to the Wizard, but rather Rolls Royce Merlin. HAHA!

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
