PORTLAND -- It's official: Portland is weirder than Austin, Texas.

Well, it's not quite official, but the Sparefoot blog (in Austin) has compared the cities and determined the Rose City is the weirder of the two.

The site cites 12 different lists like "America's Strangest People" and "Most Tattooed US Cities," going back to 2010.

Portland ranked higher in eight categories (including the two above) and Austin took the lead in only four categories.

But surprisingly, Austin's winning categories did include "Best Cities for People Watching" and (gasp) "Best Beer Town."

Check out this infographic to see what makes Portland just a bit weirder than Austin:
