Truth is Stranger than Fiction

It's also stranger than my lame jokes. From the Footscray Historical Society Newsletter, August 2004:
The Saltwater River soon became a drain for the factories (abattoirs, tanneries, bone mills etc) on its banks anything and everything went into the river - and the place was called "Stinkopolis".
Fortunately, "Fridgebourg" is still available.
