Literacy ain't everything
Ya want fries with dat?
Come, freeze your butt off
Winter home to 150,000 snowbirds
At least we're not Mississippi
The Granola State
Nobody's actually from here
Fast reloading lanes available
The really long state
Too wimpy to cross the mountains so we stopped here
Official home of the winter ski bunny
Way too close to New York
You'll need a map to find us
So close to Washington you can smell it

Come, enjoy the humidity
The snow capital of the US
Home of the Rednecks
Gateway to Florida
Confederate money welcome
Sure, we've got Interstates... drive on over
Book 'em Danno

Come, get lai-ed
Ain't nothing here
We don't care if you spell potato with an "e"
Land of a billion "eyes"
Land of the voting dead
Gateway to Iowa
Home of David Letterman
Just east of Omaha
It's easy to spell

There's no place like home
Ya want flat, we got flat
Tobacco is a vegetable

Swim the beautiful Bayou
Cancer Alley's just a name, and names will never hurt you
You can spit on Canada from here
If it weren't for Washington, you couldn't find us
Home of the young girls from Nantucket,

Land of the free, home of the Buick
Not Sweden, but we try to act like it
Sure beats Canada
We're lucky we can spell it
Why would you want to come here?
Gateway to Kansas
Here's mine, Show Me yours
We're better than Illinois
Land of the Big Sky, and very little else
We've got lots of 10'x10' shacks in the woods
It's where you're wanted.
At least our cows are sane.
More corn than Kansas
Go to Kansas, turn north
More weirdos than Alaska (warmer too)
2 words - Death Valley
3, you'll leave broke
5, We have our own nuclear testing site

About as exciting as Vermont
You have the right to remain silent,
You have the right to an attorney...
Tell 'em Guido sent ya
Lizards make excellent pets
We have reservations
Alien Welcome Center - Roswell
At least we're not New Jersey!
We're more than a big city; we're a state
Like we CARE about a motto
English spoken here; sometimes
Five million people; Fifteen last names
We're bigger than South Carolina
The OTHER South Dakota
Don't judge us by Cleveland
Proud polluters of Lake Erie
We're easy to spell
We're OK, you're NOT!
I don't think we're in Kansas anymore, Toto
As pretty as California but not as weird
We're not named after a musical instrument
You can see the sunset from here
Cook with coal
Free lube job with oil change
Size ain't everything
Nobody famous came from Rhode Island
Just south of North Carolina
Closer than North Dakota
The Educashun State
Thank goodness we've still got Elvis
A great fixer-upper
Si Hablo Ingles
See, EVERYTHING is bigger in Texas!
Our Jesus is better than your Jesus
At least our sheep can't talk
Bet ya can't name 2 of our towns
Please don't confuse us with West Virginia!
We like our state, so STAY OUT!
Where "family values" has a different meaning
Land of funny accents.
Where men are lonely and sheep are scared
