VE's New Shirts - Part 2

Yeah, I'm abusing the various states (and Canada) with my little state mottos of nonsense. Here's part 2 of the series.

I know Mary and she does not want it back. Being as to who has taken over it and all.

God bless.

Mrsupole said...

I also wanted to say that you could probably start a business and sell these. You would need to work though, so I am not sure you would want to do it, but yes you truly could sell these.

Maybe you could sell it to schools for their "History or Geography" classes. I mean since we do have 57 states now. I can't wait to see the new ones.

GO CUBS! YAY! Oh wait...I was stuck in 1908 for a moment ( grins ).

Iowa; great reference, heh, heh...

Subby said...

The answer to the Maine question is "NO", ya dinna. Heck they come down to Massachusetts for th' lobster( the die-hards go all the way to the outer banks of NC; to Dirty Dick's )...! 'Tis also cheaper :P

Beth said...

Brilliant and oh-so-delightfully offensive!
(I'm waiting patiently for "Oh, Canada!")

CatLadyLarew said...

Ack! I'm a child of the corn! Scary movie... that's why I had to leave the state!

sharonheg said...

Oh goody, my home state should be in the next installment.

ReformingGeek said...

Poor Maryland. No wonder is so crowded. All those blue Kentuckians have gone there to seek "mary"ment.

Gee, I thought Chicago was it's own state. ;-)

The Incredible Woody said...

I thought Idaho's slogan had something to do with someone being a 'ho'.

M.Bug said...

Although I am not from New Orleans, I have many friends there who were left in a sad state after Katrina. My first trip after the storm brought much more sadness than I felt just watching the events on the news when it happened. Every time I go back and see the progress being made there it warms my heart. There is still much re-building to be done. If it were your hometown you would want it back too.

JenJen said...

Can't wait for Michigan. Can't. Wait.

Roy said...

We have "lobstah" here in Rhode Island, too, but like the rest of coastal New England (despite Subby's protests), yeah, we're pretty far north. So the answer to Maine's question is "Yes".

I'm almost afraid to see what you're gonna do to Rhode Island!

VE said...

Mrsupole – I probably could start a business…in fact, I had some plans to business-ize Fantastical Nonsense…but it seems like a gamble to make any real money…

Subby – So then, you’re saying, there’s no reason at all to have to go up to Maine? Problem solved then…

Beth – You will have to wait a bit…

Catladylarew – That’s what too much corn does to someone…

Sharonheg – And abused accordingly…

Reforminggeek – Is that the back story? I thought as much…

Incredible – I tried not to go there…it didn’t help IMUS’ career much…

m.bug – True…I would too…

jenjen – It won’t be pretty…

roy – Be afraid, be very afraid…

Elizabeth said...

LOL, I love Indiana. I from now on will always call it Nativeamericana! :)

Quirkyloon said...

Do the children of the corn come with butter? And a little pepper please.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

LOL!

Roy Scribner said...

Who drew those Maryland borders, anyway? What a mess.

Jacki said...

I agree....Maryland is a mess! Can't wait to see what you come up with for Virginia. Especially now that our governer has instituted "Confederate History Month."

Anne said...

that's the best you can come up with for maryland?

I'm appalled

(what's new this time?)

aladdinsane12 said...

ha, i would be pissed if i were idaho and a state took a chunk outt me! and i'm from chicago, so i'm totally down with the illinois one!

Serena said...

You'd make a fortune actually selling those shirts. I'd buy a couple!

Janna said...

Whew!
No Michigan yet.
I scrolled down the list with a mixture of anticipation and dread...
And breathed a sigh of relief when it stopped at Maryland.

This, of course, means Michigan will be in the next list....

*shudder*

Janna said...

And BTW, I'm sort of slightly embarrassed that I had no clue Maryland was shaped like that.

Sort of like a piece of wood cut out by a psychotic guy who had just drank twelve cups of espresso and is learning to use a jigsaw for the first time.

Megan said...

Indiana is my favorite.

Josh Lewin said...

Can't wait for Massachusetts

VE said...

Elizabeth – It’s just more politically correct…

Quirkyloon – Quirky! Quirky! I lured you from your blogging sabbatical. For you, we’ll provide butter…even that fake stuff from the movie theaters…

Perpetual Chocoholic – Duly filed in my LOL folder…thanks

Roy – Mess is the right word!

Jacki – You’ll have to wait…V is gonna take awhile…

Anne – You have a better one? I’m waiting….

Aladdinsane12 – It rings true, doesn’t it?

Serena – I’ve contemplated it…

Janna – You should shudder…it’s coming…

Janna – There was a TV show about how the states got their shape but since I didn’t watch it, I still have no idea…

Megan – State or Nonsensical statement?

Josh – You won’t have to wait long…it’s in the next installment…

Carla said...

Okay, Canadian provinces next please.

lime said...

i gotta say, there are a few parts of maryland i am familiar with that aren't that way and which i quite enjoy.

Jaime said...

maine...good lobster. but that's about it

Chris C said...

Next one has my home state New Hampshire. Can't wait for that one hehe.

VE said...

carla - I'm afraid I'm going to have to just do Canada in general. It would be presumptuous of me to try and narrow down to provinces when I know nothing about them (then again, what do I know about all the states?)

lime - Don't try and soften up my positions with your favoritism! ;)

jaime - You're lucky Deb isn't reading this! Besides...they stole the Portland name from us...(actually we stole it from them but don't tell them that)...

chris c - It's coming. The installments come about every 3-5 days apart...

The Silver Fox said...

Louisiana was my favorite this time. Thank you, Dubya.

VE said...

silver fox - A bit sad...

Cheryl said...

I'm kinda glad Montana got land greedy. Idaho is the cutest state on the map. Maybe it's because it looks like a big comfy chair like the one I spend most of my time in.

VE said...

cheryl - I hope it's REALLY cushy because it looks kinda bumpy there...
