Hard of hearing

At a Chabad House once, I was speaking with a very cute, old man who came for services.
When I asked him where he was from originally, he answered, "Portland."
Hmmm. I would have guessed something more like... Minsk, or Tashkent. Portland is nice, too.
But I knew of two, so I asked, "Oregon, or Maine?"
Then he explained to me, "No, Poland!"
