Yes, in fact, there is an Idiotville. It really explains a lot. Each of us has probably been from there at some point in our lives and known other citizens as well.
It turns out this was once a logging camp and is now a ghost town located on our drive between Rockaway and Portland. The town overlooked the banks of the beautiful Idiot Creek. (I swear I am not making this up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idiotville,_Oregon ). Apparently it received such a distinguished name because it was said to be so remote that no one but an idiot would live there.
Over the past few days, we have had great fun coming up with town slogans and wording for tourist t-shirts. My favorite entry is from Della..."Idiotville – Where few live but many belong."
My only hope is that I am not appointed Mayor!
