Being new to Portland (not to mention incurably immature) and all, I got all giggly when my pronunciation of "Couch Street" was corrected by a housemate. Apparently it's the oldest Portland joke in the book, but the street is pronounced like the female genitalia, not the furniture item. As if that weren't hilarious enough, the damn street was named after John H Couch, better known as Captain Couch.
OK, for those of you who aren't rolling in the aisles that's pronounced "Captain Cooch."
Got it now? Good. Now check out Captaincouch.com and don't say I never did anything for you.
