Of course I have to say Texas.

But I also like the way the Hawaiian islands really look like a chain.

Florida's keen look gives the U.S. a distinct outline, as well.

From the weird but kind of funny department.

When I was little (2 or 3), I would always see the map of the US when they were doing weather and I thought it looked like a pig and they were talking about what parts to divvy up...

This was back in the days before animated, digital maps. Heck, we only had a black and white tv when I was a kid!

Florida... Straight up it looks like a unit, flip it upside down and it's a cowboy boot, turn it sideaways and it's a pistol....throw it on the end of 00 and you got a pretty good imitation of the "007" logo form the Bond movies.

I remember reading some poster at some time describe Florida as a "penis taking a leak on Cuba".(The Florida Keys are the trickle )

I like my home state of Georgia. It has a certain strength about it.

I love Texas's Shape

I also agree on Florida's shape

I also really like Indiana's shape

To top it all off, there's something about Nevada's and Wisconsin's shapes that also get me

love wyoming and hate colorado? lol. they are both squares!!!

They are squares for a reason though when the mining started in Colorado they first wanted to stretch it down to Santa Fe, NM all the way up to Cheyenne, Wyoming as a WHOLE state but in order to create more balanced states (more leveling state jurisdiction and resources), the plains in particular were three-sided aligned and the rocky mountain states four-sided aligned (four corners anyone?). Then it furthermore got split through a parallel north of where CA/NV/UT is today to make the 2 most SQUARE states. I don't know if it makes sense but you'll have to refer to the map. The shapes I like most:

1) Michigan - looks like a dinosaur (talk about those old chevys they use to make)

2) AL/MI - it was part of Georgia territory but when they split the states they once again try to make it as even as possible and the border in between them is if you notice, slanted for a reason.

3) Texas - the "lone star state", it's really a country of it's own, or maybe one day it will be, don't mess with Texas.
