The ferry system we rode where this picture was taken is the Kingston Ferry line; the name of the specific ferry boat that we rode was called the Puyallup. Definitely failed when my father-in-law pointed to the name on the boat and asked me to pronounce it (for you non-Seattleites who are curious, it’s pronounced Pew-AL-up). And I thought we had funny names for places in New York!
I lived in Puyallup for the past 15 years, so yes it is funny when Kid Rock plays the Washington State Fair (used to be the Puyallup Fair) and tries to pronounce Puyallup. And if that was the name of the boat, ok then, my bad.
Haha, can’t believe no one told him! Well, actually, they could have but he was probably too drunk to remember. I really shouldn’t talk when my first attempts went something like “Poo-yawl-up? Pile-up?” Here’s someone’s blog with pics of the same ferry boat we rode named after your town: http://www.slowtrav.com/blog/marta/archives/013329.html
