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”
Might have to revise that one for Ohio.
Where are the other 7 states?
New York = Semper Vectigal (always tax)
I thought it was "liquor in the front, poker in the rear?
some are funny...
New one for Colorado: “Don’t bogart the Cheetos. Wait. Wut?”
I suggest " Come get our Rocky Mountain High, dude..."
That was hilarious! Thanks.
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 - these are pretty funny. thanks.

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!
they all have the same motto
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
That sums it well. :)
