IKEA cuts ribbon on 'I've Got A Screw Loose Street'

Facebook vote names new Spanish thoroughfare

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Flatpack monolith IKEA has announced that its new tentacle in Valladolid, Spain, will sit on "I've Got A Screw Loose Street".

According to Spanish national ABC, Facebook fans of the Scandie particle board botherer selected "Calle me falta un tornillo" as option A for the new thoroughfare on the site at Arroyo de la Encomienda, on the outskirts of the city.

As of 20 December, locals will be able to wander the aisles of the 34,700m2 IKEAplex – the trailblazing store for a planned shopping centre which will eventually create 2,000 new jobs.

This substantial boost to the economy unsurprisingly means the powers that be haven't even raised an eyebrow at the prospect of becoming the home of "I've Got A Screw Loose Street".

The mayor of Arroyo de la Encomienda, José Manuel Méndez, said the town hall would approve the name forthwith and without further ado.

Ten lucky IKEA Facebook fans, meanwhile, will receive a replica "Calle me falta un tornillo" street sign, as a reward for their contribution to the Independent Republic Of Your Home. ®
