    Boring, OR is probably the one that gets the most attention here. Another favorite of mine is Halfway, OR. Halfway to what or where?

    Like Washington we have a lot of indian names that sound funny but I don't consider them funny by themselves. I do get a good laugh listening to outsiders trying to pronounce them. Heck, most outside of the PNW can't even pronounce Oregon right.
