State Motto

I wonder who sits around and thinks up the state motto you see so proudly displayed on car license plates. (It’s these kind of thoughts that make those around me suggest I have too much free time on my hands.) In the spirit of progress and change, I offer these slogan writers the following suggestions:
Arizona: But It’s A Dry Heat
California: By Age 30, Our Women Have More Plastic Than Your Honda
Connecticut: Like Massachusetts, Only The Kennedys Don’t Own It Yet
Delaware: We Really Do Like Chemicals In Our Water
Illinois: Please Don’t Pronounce The "S"
Indiana: Two Billion Years Tidal Wave Free
Iowa: We Do Amazing Things With Corn
Maryland: If You Can Dream It, We Can Tax It
Mississippi: Come And Feel Better About Your Own State
New Mexico: Lizards make Excellent Pets
Ohio: At Least We’re Not Michigan
Pennsylvania: Cook With Coal
Utah: Our Jesus Is Better Than Your Jesus
You are invited to add your own, alter these, or just forget the whole thing.

    i\’m not sure about LA, but in New Orleans, the most popular bumper sticker used to be New Orleans, Proud to Call (or Crawl) It Home. right now, where ever you turn you head, you\’ll see New Orleans, Proud to Swim Home.

    So Jorge, you think you have too much time on your hands?
    Awaken to labyrinth ways,
    system your own personal arcade.
    follow the maze of the self-wound time clock.
    You\’re late!
    Motor on,
    drivin\’ you\’re gone.
    Like clock-work in a perimetor prison.
    Whoa! Work the celestial sphere and I am but,
    the meridian.
    Reprimand, a course of extremes.
    Fire the ignition,
    drivin\’ by social submission.
    if you\’re late you pay the toll.
    Hard times? Sorry you have to go!
    Tic tic tic tic tic tic…clock-work.
    by linda ( ha! silly poem I tried to make up!)
    Love, herbs and spice all things nice.

    Good morning, Jorge!!!
    I Liked your motto for my lovely state. Here\’s my suggestion for an alternate Iowa motto:
    A  nice break between Illinois and Nebraska.
    Never let it be said that Iowans are humorless. We do have a sense of humor; it\’s just a little corny, that\’s all…
    Peace and Love.

    North Carolina – We may not have all our teeth, but no one\’s looking at our teeth anyway
    Louisiana(where I used to live): Motto? Huh? "Hey, Skeeter, somebody\’s a tthe door talkin\’ about some motto?" "Yeah? well, can I fry it?"

    Hah. Like those. We don\’t have them here, just Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales, no comment really! Our symbols, as you likely know are the thistle, the shamrock, the rose and the leek (and Wales has the world\’s coolest flag!)
    Have fun.

    My thing is who names the highways? In my state every highway stretch is the Elmo Schmo highway – I have 2 questions, A. who are the highways named after and B who gets to sit around and get paid for this?

  12. Jaime Campbell says:

    What a great mind you have for humor!  These are wonderful.
    Listen, I wanted to thank you for the comment that you left for me recently.  There were several that kept coming to my mind over the past few days that really lifted me up…yours was one of them.  You are a dear friend.  Thank you for what you said.
