If you live in a part of the country where you experience all four seasons, then you’re pretty used to snowplows cleaning the streets of your town, whenever Mother Nature decides to dump inches of snow on the ground.
But did you know that these snowplows actually have names -- and most of them are beyond hilarious?
Twitter user Alec Stapp tweeted a list of all the snowplows in Michigan that are named, from the Michigan Department of Transportation.
We looked into it too, and it turns out, the department really does have a list of snowplow names sorted by region, and they’re really funny.

And I don’t mean a light giggle kind of funny -- I’m talking about laugh out loud funny.
The level of pun work with words like “snow,” “salt,” and “plow” is truly next level.
Just reading the list, I could sense my seasonal depression melting away. I might actually make it through this wave of omicron, thanks to this list.
So without further ado, let’s go through some of my favorite snowplow names (in no particular order), and have a good laugh, shall we?
Look, you just want to meet the person who drives a snowplow named Big Bertha. You don’t mess with them.
Our first pun! There is also a Plowasaurus Rex on the mega list of names, but we’ve got to give it to Saltosaurus Rex. No snow is safe when this plow is around.
Snowdown Please, I’m Plowing
It’s a pun, but it’s also not a name pun, so this makes it even better. And the driver of this plow is correct: You should slow down while they’re plowing!
This is the first (of many) “Star Wars” puns, which has me thinking that people who drive snowplows are just giant nerds? We say that with love!
Fast and Flurryous
OK, I adore this one. Not only is it a great pun, but they used the word “flurry” when most of the puns we see involve “plow” or “salt.”
OMG, the joy this name brought me when I first saw it.
Again, “sleet” is a word we don’t see used for puns on this list, so hats off for the creativity. And who doesn’t love Fleetwood Mac?
Bringin’ Pavement Back
Besides this being a play on “SexyBack” by Justin Timberlake, this is literally what a snowplow does. This name is entertaining and informative.
This is an A+ pun and this person also gets bonus point because Alice Cooper is from Michigan. It’s a win-win.
This continues our trend of many “Star Wars” puns. Like I said, I think these snowplow drivers are just huge nerds, and I am here for it.
OK, but this one is the best of the “Star Wars” names. I applaud you.
Orange Yooper Storm Trooper
Not really a pun, but I do appreciate a good rhyme!
Still Shorts Weather
We all know that guy who wears shorts in the middle of winter on the one day when the sun’s out and the temp is just about 40 degrees.
This snowplow is an ode to that dude.
Too soon? Nah, I think it’s a loving tribute.
Live on, Betty!
Ctrl Salt Delete
I have no words. This is genius.
OK, you can all go home now. This one wins.
Also, more nerds driving snowplows.
The inner English major in me is smiling so hard at this name.
My heart burst with the intensity of 1,000 suns.
Edgar Allan Snow
Again, God bless the people who come up with these names.
THIS ONE WINS, GOOD-BYE.
