On US Hwy. 26 heading west into Portland from Mt. Hood and points east,
there is a sign for an exit that takes you to Oregon City and the town of
Boring.  You guessed it--the sign reads:

Oregon City

As a resident of the latter locality, I'm always inclined to comment, as
The New Yorker might once have done, "Just give the directions, please!"
