[BY NICOLE BITETTE, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS]  Word of mouth goes a long way.

A street name that shares a slang meaning with a hole in the wall designed for sexual gratification keeps getting stolen in Camino, California.

People who live on Glory Hole Drive in the El Dorado County mountains say their street sign keeps getting stolen and it is expensive to replace.

Steve Smith, a resident of the street, thinks that young people probably think it's a sexual connotation.

"Some kid's got it in his bedroom or college dorm room," he told KOVR-TV.

Smith is no stranger to weird street names. He moved from Alaska where his street was called "Smoke Bowl."

"I don't know who took the sign but they wanted it pretty bad. We had the Smoke Bowl sign in Alaska taken twice," Smith said.

"Maybe it's you," the station's anchor joked.

Glory Hole Drive is actually named after a gold mine camp formerly located in the area, which featured a hole in the ground that offered glory to those who struck gold, KOVR-TV reported.

The sign for Glory Hole Drive is also missing in Google Street View photos taken in 2012. The winding road is located near a Glory Hole Court, as well as You Bet Court.
