Or maybe you do, if your attendees have a sense of humor. A friend sent me a list of 50 state "mottoes," some of which I thought were pretty funny (others a tad to very offensive). Here are some of the better ones:
Arizona: But It's a Dry Heat
Illinois: Please Don't Pronounce the "S"
Indiana: 2 Billion Years Tidal Wave Free
Iowa: We Do Amazing Things With Corn
Kansas: First of The Rectangle States
Maine: We're Really Cold, But We Have Cheap Lobster
Massachusetts: Our Taxes Are Lower Than Sweden's
Minnesota: 10,000 Lakes... And 10,000,000,000,000 Mosquitoes
Nebraska: Ask About Our State Motto Contest
New York: You Have The Right To Remain Silent, You Have The Right To an Attorney...
North Carolina: Tobacco Is A Vegetable
North Dakota: We Really Are One Of The 50 States!
South Dakota: Closer Than North Dakota
What would you say your state motto should be? I like "Land of the Fee, Home of the Knave," but I’m not sure what state that one would belong to. Or maybe that could be the unofficial motto of that hotel that royally goofed up your last meeting and overcharged to boot?
