One afternoon, a retired air force pilot and his family were driving through Texas on a vacation. They pass a road sign. One of the children remarks on the fact that the sign is named after a dance style.

After about five minutes, they pass another sign, which reads, "Golf Road". As soon as they pass it, the man turns to his wife and says he knows what the next sign will say, and that he'll bet her twenty dollars that he's right. She agrees, and they drive on. After passing the next road sign, the wife finds that her husband is right, and hands him twenty dollars.

What did the last sign say and how did the man know?


Hint

Retired Air Force Pilot
The dance style is also a well known comic strip in the USA.

I guessed the first road correctly (admittedly, upon reading the hint), but I couldn't guess the last road. Well done!

The fact that he was a retired pilot meant nothing to me. I don't know anything about that kind of crap. That thing totally confused me even though I just finished reading a book fulla Foxtrot comics. I'm so retarded.

i was on the right track of think what dance had incommon with golf and my favorite comic strip foxtrot, but with my lack of knowlege of the alphabet (you know the alphabet i mean, im not retarded ) i couoldnt have guessed hotel, good one, i would had to used the knowlege of him being and x air force pilot and some research behind that to have gotten what you were really saying.
