VE's New Shirts - Part 3

Yeah, I'm abusing the various states (and Canada) with my little state mottos of nonsense. Here's part 3 of the series.

Tomorrow Tax, LOL.

California has them beat with the Today, Now, Pretty Soon, Afterwards, Gonna Get Ya, etc...taxes. And we even have the F'd Ya Up Royally Tax.

If there is a tax to be made, California has it. We are the Tax Capital of the World.

Damn Gobernent.

God bless.

Bet they have some awesome corn mazes in Nebraska!

Beth said...

Ha! As if we would bother trying - or would want to!

Roy said...

The "Taxachusetts" thing is old and way out of date; our taxes here in RI, just next door, are higher than MA's.

Subby said...

Huzzah! Taxachussetts! Oh wait...that's where I live! Hope gov'ner Duval doesn't see this!

And great new Jersey reference ( lived there too, for a few years ); George Carlin's remark, "Kiss here where it smells; take her to New Jersey!"

If you've ever driven through there, you'd know why, HA!

Subby said...

@Roy, don't worry, we'll catch up anon :( the gov hasn't yet figured out the "snack tax"

I used to vacation in Minnesota... even during the summer we had to use the heater.

lime said...

oh new jersey is just too true!!

JenJen said...

ha I was waiting for Michigan, and I loved it!

Janna said...

Canada hasn't encroached our borders because the unemployment rate is so ungodly high here in Michigan.

They know they'd never end up getting any jobs after they invaded.

Stuff like that stays on your
permanent record.

Chris Wood said...

Those rectangular states are really quite arrogant about it, aren't they? Strewth, anyone would think natural accidents were a matter of pride.

ReformingGeek said...

Again, you've hit the nails on the head.

I'm a little scared for Old Hampshire.

Jaime said...

these are great. love the NH and NJ ones. SO glad you didn't go the Guido jersey shore route :)

Gladys said...

Why does New Jersy look like Picasso's toilet?

aladdinsane12 said...

oh god. oh GOD! i have been looking for old hampshire for years and he's....DEAD? nooooooo!

Megan said...

I'd like to go back and protest the California T, but I can't even remember what it said. Something about traffic?

Elizabeth said...

Too bad these are not real t-shirts, I'd love the Alaska one!

sharonheg said...

Ack, still one more installment until my hometown of New York...

Roy Scribner said...

I think you should sell these. Of course there's those business taxes you guys just passed, up there...

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I still want to live there. You can't dissuade me no matter how hard you try!!!

VE said...

Mrsupole – There’s always a price to pay for great weather…

Incredible woody – The scary part is you may never get out!

Beth – Probably true…

Roy – Hey, I’m old too! And I can’t help it if they’re slacking…

Subby – It’s hard to compete with Carlin…even when he’s dead…

Catladylarew – And when you don’t…you’ve got the mosquitos…

Lime – I have been there and I’ve worked with a few of their kind!

Jenjen – Excellent…my readers are either satisfied or just pissed off at me. When they’re pissed off…I blame the gnomes…

Janna – But think of all the housing they could get for nothing outside of Detroit!!!

Chris wood – They think they’re SO superior!

Reforminggeek – It was a tragedy…

Jaime – So far I think I’ve only pissed off a couple of readers. Guess I’ll have to work harder next time…

Gladys – Ha! No wonder they have attitude…

Aladdinsane12 – I know…everybody thought he was planting trees with Jimmy Hoffa and Elvis…

Megan – Yes, where traffic has its own zip code! Don’t even pretend that isn’t true…I’ve driven down there!

Elizabeth – Perhaps some day I’ll get around to actually following through with one of my zany ideas…

Sharonheg – It’s coming…very soon…

Roy – Exactly. Let see…if I sell a couple million of them, I think I could make about $175 net….

Perpetual chocoholic – What…Nebraska? Have at it…

angie said...

I particularly liked Massachusetts motto! :)

Carla said...

I think Canada pretty much taxes like there's no tomorrow as well. Sad, but true.

VE said...

angie - Hi stranger. I think where you are has enough taxes too!

carla - Yes, but they also deliver useful services for it too...

California Girl said...

these are hilarious! i'll have to hunt around to find parts 1 & 2.

VE said...

california girl - They aren't too far back...

The Silver Fox said...

God bless Michigan, guardian of our border!

VE said...

silver fox - We should thank them otherwise I'd be saying...we should thank them, eh?

Cheryl said...

You nailed NJ ... hard! My aunt needs one of these. Size small if you've got any left. Thanks.

VE said...

cheryl - I've known a number of people from there so that helped!
