Wankers Corner is an unincorporated area centered at the intersection of Stafford Road and Borland Road in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. Because this is not a recognized community, it has never had a post office, nor does it consistently appear on maps of Oregon (although the AAA map of Oregon shows it in an inset). The United States Geological Survey classifies Wankers Corner as a "locale":[1] "a place at which there is or was human activity".[2] It has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names.[3]

Saloon and Cafe[edit]

Original Wanker's Corner Saloon and Cafe

As of May 2007, Wanker's Corner Saloon and Cafe is located on Main Street in Wilsonville, Oregon, five or so miles south-southwest of Wankers Corner, that is, the intersection of Stafford Road and Borland Road; the website states the establishment is a successor to the original Wanker's Corner Saloon and Cafe up the road, forced to move to larger quarters to accommodate the owner's collections of "antiques, junk, knick-knacks, Americana, Australiana, movie posters, and many unidentifiable objects."[citation needed]
