If you've ever seen an episode of "Portlandia," you know that displays of astoundingly ridiculous consideration are the norm in that bizarro Oregon city. So is it any surprise to find its residents showing a tiny boat the courtesy of lifting an entire bridge on its behalf to let it pass through? (That little watercraft would have been stifled otherwise, right? Its chi would have been all off. That boat is an individual and deserves to be treated with the respect to pass beneath a bridge just like any big boat!) The funny pic, uploaded with the caption, "Seems a bit unnecessary…" was in all likelihood snapped before or after the bigger ship passed through, or perhaps altered completely in Photoshop. But still — it sure seems like something Portland would do. [Source]
