It would be going too far to note the street address of this attraction.

I fail to see what is so funny.

oh what the hell - they should sell t-shirts:

I got my big bone licked in Kentucky

also - sounds like a boring museum, cuz "prehistoric Kentucky" probably ain't a hell of lot different from Kentucky now

Popular high school pick up line in kentucky: Hey Suzy, lets go down to bone lick park and I'll show you a real cool stalagmite..

Shame on you. I used to live in Beaver Dam, KY and had a friend who lived in Beaver Dam PA - it's the other furry animals you guys....

Thank you, I just had it stuffed.

Wow, my state of employment is famous! Actually, I pass the sign for that park about once or twice a month and I've been there a couple times.

In light of all this, Big Bone Lick State Park on Beaver Road is still really funny.

Sure, Sean! When are you free?

Under the FAQs

Does your golf course have a dress code?
The park is called Big Bone Lick. It's on Beaver Road. It's in Kentucky. You're thinking we have a dress code? We do not. We do, however, suggest you either wear shoes you don't like or easily washable ones.

But beavers don't have tongues.

You used to drive through a town called Beaver Lick to get to Beaver Road. Unfortunately, the town no longer exists.

Big Bone is just down the street from where I live. Prehistoric Kentucky was a big sea for the most part.

Lab - I found nothing on the site to explain the name. I assume they found a big bone there. Did they lick it? Did it make them high, like Toadlick park in Arkansas?

No wait, sorry, that's Toad Suck Park in Arkansas.

Why didn't they just go ahead and name it Big Bone Suck park?

Does their commercial have an owl that inquires how many licks it takes to get to the center of a big bone?

Mastadon bones, and such. There are lots of places around here called "lick" because of the salt licks. Remember your American History? None of the native american tribes "owned" Kentucky because it was such a rich hunting ground. It was shared. The animals came here for the salt licks, as did the native americans and the invaders... er... Europeans. They (the people, not the animals) would boil the water for the salt.

Since so many animals came here, it has been a popular hunting ground from all the way back in the days of the "cave man". Thus, the animal bones.

Oh, and I bet that the S.B. visited the park at least once back in her younger days.

"jelly ground" on Beaver Road???

The mind reels.

Also not mentioned in great town names near Big Bone Lick state park is Rabbit Hash, KY.

And from the could possibly be a dirty innuendo category, my company sold a piece of a equipment for a project at Woolly Hollow State Park.

Not quite as conspicuous as Big Bone Lick, but a pervy mind like mine finds endless possibilities.

Hi Lab!

Beaver Road? Big deal. Utah's got whole city with that name.

Lab - I studied Kentucky history in a Kentucky public school, which explains why I don't know any. Only thing I remember is Daniel Boone, and that he would shoot anyone who asked him to lick a big bone.

Well, the name certainly gives a few hints as to why the ground was "jelly like"

Naturally, this is the origin of KY Jelly. I thought it was manufactured, not mined. Oh well, what do i know?

Hi Brian! Rabbit Hash is a cool town.

I'm willing to bet this is one park that doesn't get many school field trips.

Kentucky gets Big Bone Lick State Park on Beaver Road. Iowa gets some dame from PETA sucking water from a toilet.

Life is just not fair sometimes.

You people disgust me. I should move to Lake Titicaca to get away from such filthy minds.

What's weird is, a woman named it.

Ha ha!
