I’m not sure, but I can think of two possibilities:

My city with a 110 is given a "grade" of D-. That's a really bad grade. It's not a particularly expensive place to live. How does a city get a "passing grade"?

When you are driving along a one-lane road, occasionally you come up to a "passing lane". After a couple miles, one of the lanes goes away. Sometimes it's the right lane, sometimes the left. ...

Politicians (or really anyone) using word-play with their names. Recently passed by a billboard saying "Expect more. Elect Moore". Sorry, buddy. You just lost my vote. Be better next time.

Yellowstone is the quintessential national park (it being the first one and all). It's easily the most well known. That doesn't mean it's the "best".
