a funny little Seattle fact

If you go to downtown Seattle, a lovely, charming, diverse city, you will inevitably cross over street car lines. You know...the type of bus-looking, above-ground subwayish transportation...that goes on rails, of sorts, from point A to point B. Most cities have such transit options.

But Seattle is special.
Not too far back in history, Seattle decided that the Lake Union area needed a trolley


The trolley runs right around the bottom of Lake Union.
What apparently nobody thought of prior to creating and naming this little gem was the acronym it created: South Lake Union Trolley.

Yes, you too can go to Seattle and buy a T-shirt saying "Ride the S.L.U.T."
Tourism and marketing at its best!
