After all - all three states resemble guns, and the liberals tell us that guns are bad.

A Maryalnd schoolchild was suspended for trying to make a mountain out of a pop tart which the teacher thought looked like a gun, yet in his geography or state history class he will see this.

I'm pretty sure I saw Florida making a lewd gesture at me on a map once.

No!

If Oklahoma didn't suck so much, Texas would slide off into the Gulf of Mexico.

You could always reshape the state to make it look like something more liberal friendly - like a pair of panties or a welfare check.

That is a great idea - and once Congress approved the restructuring, we could have 7 additional states.

That will make President Obama correct when he said that he had visited 57 states.

Ohio looks like a pair of panties. Do you conservatives think it should be kicked out of the Union?

Oklahoma could be made to look like a welfare check by drawing its southern boundary straight west from the Red River near Texarkana to a point just north of Hobbs, New Mexico - which would give it some of North Texas and most of the Texas Panhandle.

The problem is that this would offend Texas and Oklahoma which are primarily comprised of independent and hard working conservatives who don't demand welfare - but I haven't figured out how to do so with liberal Massschusetts and Maryland.

The panties idea might work with them.

As a liberal, I think suspending that student was totally ridiculous.

And *poof* goes yet another Harrier strawman.

Just because one person (and how do you know the teacher is a liberal?) does something absurd, does not mean that all liberals support that absurd action.

Try harder next time.

I GOT IT!

Massachusetts can be three states - draw a line from about Providence, R.I to Nashua, N.H. - everything east of that in Massachusetts as far south of Plymouth county is the "panties" section.

The far west of the state is the welfare check.

That leaves the Cape Cod Peninsula as the third state.

We should throw Michigan out.

That part that looks like a thumb is offensive to the thumb-challenged.
