What does the shape of your state resembles as an object? The State of Florida has the shape of a jet plane when put on its side. It has other shapes also but thought it would be fun to be creative to examine your state and others and and what objects it resembles..

I think New Jersey is shaped like a voluptuous woman. Overall thin, but wider at the top, narrows at the waist, and wider curvy hips.

Well since frying pan is already taken for TX (in agreement by the way), I'll just have to go with skillet for Oklahoma. A frying pan/skillet make perfect sense for Oklahoma and Texas since most of us fry about 90% of our foods. :-)

Jersey looks like a slouching fat guy with the top half of his head cut off and he has a tail.

North Dakota is a square that someone was drawing and then someone tickled them as they were drawing the east border.

Ok, I had heard penis but never the jet plane. Now I'm going to spend the entire day looking at the shape of Florida.
