Question: Motto Mania!!!

Every state needs a quality motto. But most states just aren't up to the task. From "Wild and Whatnot West Virginia" to "California, dude" to Wisconsin's "Eat Cheese or Die" and "Arizona, That's Hot!", these mottos just aren't satisfying. So pick a state or two and tell us what their motto should be!

Here's a suggestion for California to start things off: "The Fools Gold State"

LawHawkSF said...

Andrew: I prefer "California--Used to be Golden--Went Green--Turned Brown."

texas--kickin' ass since 1836

AndrewPrice said...

I have to admit, I did like "Don't Mess With Texas!"

StanH said...

“Georgia, Jimmah screwed us all”

patti said...

andrew: we like it too :)

AndrewPrice said...

Stan, Georgia is lucky. Now that Obama has shown he's worse than Carter, the new motto of Illinois should be: "We're sorry!"

And Georgia's motto can swtich "Thank God We're Not Illinois".

:-)

Andrew, I think just about every state can boast, "Thank God We're Not Illinois"!

Arizona: "Some Like It Hot!"

AndrewPrice said...

Writer X, That's better than "Arizona, Now With Hockey!"

Our motto is: "Colorado, The John Elway State"

Writer X said...

Hockey? What is hockey?

Iowa: "On A Clear Day You can See Nebraska"

OK that's lame.

AndrewPrice said...

Writer X, It's a game they used to play in Canada. I think they opened a branch in Phoenix before they shut down the league. ;-)

AndrewPrice said...

USArtguy, Someone I know from Iowa once told me Iowa stands for "Idiots Out Wandering Around."

But I would never denigrate a state that seems to keep voting for Democrats. . . no I would never do that!

USArtguy said...

New Mexico: (Space) Aliens Welcome!

Nevada: The Leave Your Silver State

Indiana: Where you can have anything you want as long it's cows or corn

Louisiana: Katrina slept here

Alabama: Moving up in Education! Thank God for Mississippi!

Maine: The Lumbah and Lobstah state

New Jersey: GO HOME!

West Virginia: Hang a left at Virginia

AndrewPrice said...

USArtguy, Nice work! I particularly like that "The Lumbah and Lobstah state"!

USArtguy said...

Andrew,

Aw, shux t'wern't nuthin

Wait, I think that's Tennessee's slogan!

StanH said...

“Illinois, The Land of Lincoln…and barry”

AndrewPrice said...

Stan, I'm thinking Illinois will want to avoid responsibility. I could see: "Don't blame us, blame Kenya." ;-)

Mike Kriskey said...

Connecticut: "You must be this rich to enter."

Rhode Island: "We are so a state!"

Massachusetts: "Bet you can't spell it!"

AndrewPrice said...

Mike, LOL! I love your Connecticut slogan!

New York - The Tax Me State

Alaska - I Don't Nome, Alaska! (okay, okay that was lame...)

Patti - I love "Texas - Kickin' Ass since 1836"! That makes me proud to be a Texan...

AndrewPrice said...

"The Tax Me State" -- LOL! They should put that on their license plates immediately!

patti said...

bev: i figured no one but a texan would get the year.

Minnesota - Not a Blue as California or Massechusetts but damn it, we are trying!

AndrewPrice said...

Anon, That sadly seems to be true. . . Al Franken? Yikes.
