Ask McFartnuggets: “How Come We Drive on a Parkway and Park on a Driveway?”

And people do drive on a driveway
that's how you get on the shit.
Dear McFartnuggets: 
How come we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway? Shouldn’t it be the other way around? I mean HELLOOOOO??!!! -- Davey from San Francisco, California

Dear Davey:
Hello! Let me ask you this, how come we shit in a BATHroom? How come you get pulled over for being high on a highway? Sometimes things don’t have names that match the things that happen on or in them. Plus, technically you do drive onto a driveway so that’s an acceptable name. You do have to drive onto the shit as opposed to your front lawn. It’s a part of the front of a home where you can actually drive a car onto hence it’s called a driveway. And a parkway is called a parkway because you drive by parks on the way to where you’re going. It’s not like the names don’t make sense. Do they have more fitting names? Maybe. Actually not really though because imagine if a parkway was called a driveway. You wouldn’t say “I’m driving on the driveway” or “I’m gonna park in the parkway.” It just sounds stupid. It sound redundant. That’s the reason you park in a driveway and drive on a parkway, it just sounds better.
