2. Home of the world’s tallest trailer, rain, the loudest chain saw, rain, the largest spruce-bark canoe, and more rain.
3. Place where mighty college mascots are a beaver and a duck.
4. Place where disgruntled “southern” Californians from the Bay Area, tired of freedom and proud of their very tiny miniscule carbon footprints, reside in perfect blissful intolerance with the other player hater, ecofascism, tweaker, drugslut, hedonist hippies.
Memo to other Oregon definition writers: THIS IS NOT A TRAVEL GUIDE…SO STOP LYING!!!
Consider the Oregon County Credo: “When people attempt to rebel against the iron laws of nature, they come into conflict with the very same principles to which they owe their existence as human beings. Their actions against nature must lead to their own downfall.” (Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler, 1925)
Disguised as grandparents, rich preppy snobs, techno-wankers, and assorted corporate suckups, they feed upon the blood of the free and fun-loving, by passing laws that force you to have a certified professional pump your gas, a city planner to make you take care of your property a certain way, and 10 times the number of bike racks needed for each private business. Hairy-armpit-hos, showerless emo-grungers, and wigged out wookie stooges continuously protest against freedom, much to the approval of the corporations in the service industry and the blood-sucking we-know-whats-good-for-you-bullies. Their pending legislation and lack of infrastructure development will soon force car owners to either drive a Yugo-type hybrid or subjugate themselves to mass transit and living in 2 bedroom townhomes.
The native Oregonian is practically extinct due to the massive influx of rodent-like sheep-people that spawn like rabbits and take advantage of the laws that extend health care, day care, hair care, bus fair and any other right not covered in any constitution anywhere. My family has lived in Oregon for three generations and I will be leaving for good once I graduate from High School.
Oregon as Firefox sees it.
Timberline Lodge sits on Mt. Hood in Oregon. It is one of the very few (only?) ski resorts in the United States open year-round for skiing, and one of the most famous ski resorts in America. Unfortunately, this view of the building is outdated -- in 1985 the 'Day Lodge' was built on that slope in the center of the photo, on the edge of the parking lot in front of the hotel.
Oregonians are quite proud of their heritage when encountered on the east coast and take very personally when east coasters pronounce their state incorrectly.
P.S.~Oregonians can pronounce Nevada correctly, too.
Oregon Rocks, we have everything. Beaches, Mountains, Rivers, and people who pump our gas for us.
Some cool things about Oregon:
Heavenly rain that's good for you in many ways.
Wood, lots of it.
Mt Hood, great place for snow related sports.
Portland: very unusually clean & friendly city.
No sales tax!!!
Gasoline is graciously pumped for you, stay in the car.
Pendelton round-up (rodeo).
Excellent farm land.
Did I mention that there's lots of fir trees in Oregon?
Oregon is pronounced similar to carbon, not polygon.
Oregon suffers from a moderately poor economy, however nobody really notices it because there's so many services, and so many other cool things about Oregon that you'd never care if it did effect you, unless you're a Californian by heart.
However, I'm obligated to say that Oregon REALLY sucks, so you won't move in.
"Move to upstate New York???? YOU WON'T TAKE ME ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" -meselfs, talking to parents when 9 years old.
"Hey cool, it's raining. Again." -Everyone.
Grandma: "You're soaking wet, meselfs! Take a poncho next time!"
meselfs: "You're no Oregonian. I don't know you."
