LMAO

I was on a cruise ship and talking to a fellow from Canada who was a geography buff. He asked me “what is the state motto of Indiana?”

I couldn’t remember so I replied “we’re mediocre, but better than Kentucky”

Yep, the Ohio motto is no where near...not even close to being true!!! I would say it’s more like the other way around!
We Buckeyes spend our entire life making fun of Michigan.

LOL,very good list. CT is 100% true (sorry Nutmeggers, but there’s just some weird vibe in that state).

And Nebraska - I just mentioned their unicameral state gov’t on another thread (like 5 minutes ago) and asked, who ever hears of a problem there - nobody! So that is pretty funny in a very meta way!

Massachusetts: Our Taxes Are Lower Than Sweden's (For Most Tax Brackets )

That's no longer true.Sweden's been lowering their tax rates and we've been increasing ours.The *new* slogan is:

Massachusetts:Where our two dozen working folks take it up the *** on 4/15 just like our queers do every day of the year.

Yah,I know it's long
