A smallish west-coast city. Heavily populated with liberals and counterculturists, it is a Democrat city holding a Republican state hostage. Known to corrupt people once they move within the city limits, creating arrogant, rebellious youths who style themselves as revolutionaries and try to rebell against every possible institution. This has created widespread drawbacks and has caused the birth of many new ways to refer to the city, such as:
In the end, Portland is a festering sore in the otherwise pristine Williamate valley.
"Hey, do you think this black mascara makes me look rebellious enough to go to the punk show tonight?"
"Hey, do you think if I put my bra on backwards I could start a trend?"
"Hey, do you like my new messenger bag? I was tired of my old one, it had a brand sticker on it and I felt like I was supporting some evil corporate empire, so I set it on fire in somebodies' mailbox."
"Dating Portland girls is like fishing in a ditch: if you do catch something, you're gonna need antibiotics."
