Other City Mottos

If Las Vegas has the motto,
“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” then

Detroit should have the motto…
“Nothing happens in Detroit because no one stayed in Detroit”

Chicago should have the motto…
“What happens in Chicago happens indoors (I mean have you been here for summer or winter?)”

Los Angeles should have the motto…
“What happens in LA happens in the car…that’s where everyone spends their time”

New Orleans should have the motto…
“What happens in New Orleans costs the world billions”

New York should have the motto…
”What happens in New York doesn’t surprise anyone”

Omaha should have the motto…
“What happens in Omaha…isn’t the least bit interesting”

Miami should have the motto…
“What happens in Miami gets made into a TV series”

With the economy the way it is, casinos in Vegas hope something happens there.

Janna said...

My favorites are the New York and Miami ones.

The Detroit one is sadly true.
I don't live in Detroit (I'm maybe about 2-3 hours away), yet even I expect to wake up one of these days and find that I'm the only person left in the state.

ReformingGeek said...

Those are great, VE!

What happens in Texas is bigger and better than anything that happens anywhere else.

I like the LA one. It's so true.

candie - I like your Switzerland one...how true

nessa - Sisterly love? Oh, and I've been there...it's a bit scary if you go a certain direction from the convention center there. They warned us not to head that way if we wanted to live...

elizabeth - What happens in Alaska...we never hear about...

carla - Thanks

gladys - That was so true. Glad that's over!

warmchocmilk - Ha, yes, I've heard that. The only place I've been that was cold in the winter (other than ski resorts) is Toronto in February. My pants froze stiff walking from the hotel to my rental car...

Elizabeth said...

What happens in Juneau unfortunatly does not stay in Juneau but was unleashed on the rest of the country. Sorry about that.

Matty said...

Stopping in via Jaime at Red Red Whine.

What happens in Philadelphia ain't no brotherly love.

Roy Scribner said...

Yeah, what happens in Oakland can be read in the police blotter - heh

Jacki said...

Can you think of one for Washington DC?

VE said...

elizabeth - That is unfortunate but good for blog humor...

roy - What doesn't happen in Oakland much...Superbowl victory parties ;)

jacki - What happens in Washington DC...requires two thirds majority and therefor not much happens...

VE said...

matty - Welcome. Sorry I missed your comment there. I know first hand about the Philly brotherly love thing...

Maureen said...

Har! Those are great VE, but I must get my glasses checked. On first reading I thought Carolee / Home4ever said "we're on the hunt for GAY bloggers".

Geesh.

Uncivil said...

What happens in Oregon? What exactly does happen in Oregon? You guys just sit around and watch hazelnuts grow????

Starrlight said...

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I thought I had commented on this one but looks like I didn't. I must have just commented inside my head!

VE said...

maureen - And they found ME? I guess they haven't met the wifey-poo yet...

uncivil - What happens in Oregon? Now THAT is scary...

starrlight - I've been there several times...no thanks. It's polluted there and they always seem to have thunder clouds.

perpetual chocoholic - As long as you don't answer back you're ok...

Jeff said...

I was trying to think of a good one for Minnesota, but then I saw warmchocmilk's comment and decided I couldn't do better than that - so I'm taking that one. I hope she doesn't mind.

Megan said...

Comment tally hog. I can't let mrs up pole get ahead of me at this point. Doesn't that woman ever sleep?

megan - Sneaky...she is moving up. Remember though, she only gets one tally per post and no extras for being first...
