Alternative State Ad Slogans
With summer finally here, I've been seeing a lot of state-specific tourism ads. The taglines of these ads just kill me. I saw one for Illinois the other day that said "Mile after Magnificent Mile". Whatever, Illinois. Colorado's ads say "In a place called Colorado". That's accurate, but not exactly descriptive.
I think it's time for accuracy and descriptiveness in tourism, so I'd like to propose the following slogans:
Alabama: There's A Band Named After Us!
Arizona: The Immigrants Did It
Delaware: Who Knew?
Hawaii Want A Birth Certificate?
Indiana: It Takes Way Longer To Drive Through Than You Thought, Huh?
Minnesota: Passive Aggressive Since 1858
New Jersey: America's Dumpster
North Dakota: No, The Other One
Oregon: That's Not Skunk You Smell
Vermont: We've Got Ice Cream
So that's just a few off of the top of my head. Hopefully we can think of more, because the rest of the states sure need some help.

|Texas: Proof that size doesn't matter
Michigan: We're shaped like a mitten because you don't want to know where our hand's been.
Iowa: I Owe the World an Apology
Ohio: come for a car and a tat.
Wisconsin: we're better than you because our "cheese" doesn't stink.
California: come walk naked with us in front of your kids, but don't you dare serve them a kids meal
Oklahoma: jealous of Texas since 11/16/1907
New York: Slightly less a shit hole than New Jersey.
