VE's New Shirts - Part 4

Yeah, I'm abusing the various states (and Canada) with my little state mottos of nonsense. Can you believe it? We're nearly done. Here's part 4 of the series.

Oregon wins this round.

Why does Rhode Island look so BIG?

And I thought my city was the New/Old Mexico, I mean every where I go no one speaks english except me, and the only english they understand is when I flip them off for not speaking english, then all of a sudden everyone speaks sign language.

A certain sign language is the universal language of the world. Try it on the next person you come across who does not speak your language. Si, funciona. Si, si, te lo dije.

Flipping works. Moviendo de un tiron las obras.

Dios los bendiga.

Roy said...

Speaking as a Rhode Islander, size doesn't matter; ask anybody who's seen my photos of the place!

I'm with Megs, the Oregon shirt is great, although I think SC comes in a close second. Sadly, that one's not far from the truth.

Beth said...

It just doesn’t seem like abuse when it’s done with such wit and provides smiles and laughter. :)

Mama Zen said...

New York is hilarious!

Harnett-Hargrove said...

Funny, but it bites! -J

CatLadyLarew said...

I've been to Intercourse, but it's been a long time...

ReformingGeek said...

I'll take one of the scrub brush T-shirts, please.

I'll send you a tree as payment.

The Incredible Woody said...

On a trip to PA, I forced my travelmates to go to Intercourse just for a photo:)

Quirkyloon said...

South Carolina looks kinda like a heart.

Or it looks like MY heart. Kinda twisted.

*grin*

Subby said...

Sooooo close on the New York thing!

And to think Jefferson got Louisiana for 4 cents an acre!

And no trinkets or beads ;)

I've a fridge magnet from my trip to New Mexico which states, "Grettings from the middle of nowhere"...! No, really...

Subby said...

First town we stopped at in Pennsylvania was called "Promised Land, PA." Not sure how far it is from Intercourse but....

Baino said...

Ha! This series is too parochial for me since I've only ever visited LA but I do know a South Carolinan who's still pissed that they lost the war!

Monkey Man said...

This is a great series. I think I have seen a number of Oregon trees brown and needleless on lots of road sides. People appear to at least try to give them back.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

Still wanna live there....

JenJen said...

Where the hell is my comment?

Jaime said...

intercourse and blue ball Pennsylvania. horny bastards... i guess there's nothing else to do out there

Elizabeth said...

I love North Dakota's shirt!

VE said...

Megan – You sure are racking up some firsts this year. Of course Oregon wins…it’s easy to do the state you’re from…

Mrsupole – They pump it up to make it look big. As for Southern California…yes, that is the way of things there…

Roy – Well…we all have to make fun of what we can and not coming from Rhode Island…that’s the best I could do…

Beth – Oh, I don’t mind…I’m usually treading on somebody’s feelings with my humor here. I blame the gnomes when that happens…

Mama zen – Thanks…

Harnett-hargrove – Only the truth is funny (that’s the name of a comedy special my cousin was in)

Catladylarew – You need to visit more often…

Reforminggeek – Excellent, thanks…but I’d feel bad if Texas lost one of their only 6 trees…

Incredible woody – I was there to pick up a postcard…

Quirkyloon – THAT’s where they got it…

Subby – That wasn’t a bad deal. I haven’t actually been to New Mexico so I cannot say if that’s true but I’ve been to far SE Oregon and it’s one of those few places on the USA map that isn’t lit up with lights and it’s one of the few places not covered by the cell phone companies. Yeah, there’s nothing there…

Baino – That seems to be a common thing about South Carolina…

Monkey man – Anonymously leaving them, eh? Sort of like the used mattress process. They’re all on the sides of roads for some reason.

Perpetual chocoholic – As you wish…

Jenjen – I have no idea…I saw an email with a comment from you…

Jaime – Can’t you get a heart shaped hot tub just up the road in the Poconos?

Elizabeth – Only because it’s colder there than where you are…

Anne said...

I've been to Intercourse. I've shopped there. But not for what you think.

Gladys said...

I'm dying over the tree comment. I thought that all the tree huggers lived in Californication.

Roy Scribner said...

I think some of these states should be combined. Do we really need a north and southwhatever? Do New Mexico and Arizona really deserve separate state status?

Janna said...

North Dakota sounds wonderful!

I also laughed out loud at New Mexico.

LOL!

(see?)

VE said...

anne - I don't think you can buy Amish people there either...

gladys - California burned all theirs in fires...we have the only trees left...

roy - Ha...good point. Would we have Nevadoradotah?

janna - So THAT's what I hear outside...

lime said...

ok, that had to be the funniest bunch yet! i love the PA shirt. just remember. you have to go through Intercourse to get to Paradise. If you make a wrong turn you end up in Blue Ball.

The Silver Fox said...

Oklahoma's my favorite this time. Just sayin'.

aladdinsane12 said...

i think being scrub brush-shaped is an accomplishment, personally. i strive for that shape every day.

sharonheg said...

Yay, you finally got to NY...and were funny! Thanks!

Janna said...

"roy - Ha...good point. Would we have Nevadoradotah?"

I have just spent the last five minutes saying the word "Nevadoradotah" to myself, over and over again.

You crack me up. :)

gab said...

But you didnt have South Dakota on there......ok true we are a whole lot like North Dakota but you gotta give us our due too. If all goes well, when the kids are out of school for the summer we will go back to our home in SD.

VE said...

Lime – You know your state towns!

Silver fox – Are you being bias?

Aladdinsane12 – It’s the new hourglass shape!

Sharonheg – I had a lot of pressure to please…

Janna – And stay tuned…there’s more in a post coming up…

Gab – Wait for it…I’ve posted it now…

The Silver Fox said...

Just liked your slogan. Never been there.

VE said...

silver fox - It's hard to do the ones I've never been to. I think a local might call me on some of them...
