Folks, If you could change the slogan for the state you live in, what would it be? Please post existing slogan then put the new slogan as well as the state name. Be creative!

Thanks,

Example

Wisconsin
"The Badger State"-this is the current

New one-Where waters meet, and people greet? Just an example.

I know most people say Wisconsin is the dairy state.

Come to Pennsylvania--attracting businesses with high taxes, stimulating the economy with corrupt government and taking hold of the future by the balls. Pennsylvania--we are the key-stoned stated.

Well, Maine is officially the Pine Tree State, but it has been, and will forever be known as; Vactionland. Lame.

New Jersey is the Garden State
Tourism slogan is "Come See for Yourself" (GAG ME!)
I like alternatives such as:

New Jersey: Come SMELL for Yourself
New Jersey: You Gotta Problem Widdat?
New Jersey: Hurry, we're almost full!!!
New Jersey: What happens here stays in a landfill.
New Jersey: One state, under indictment
New Jersey: We don't pump our gas, we pump our fists (guido fist pump, anyone?).
New Jersey: Which exit?? F--- you, that's which exit!!
New Jersey: Save water. Drink wooder! (more for the South Jersey folks)

I am sure that you have better knowledge then I, but my experience with New Jersey has been mostly rural and I can definitely say that it didn't live up to any stereotype that I have heard.
