I have it on excellent authority that Wisconsin's state motto is merely a take-off on New Hampshire's: [size=3][b]Eat Cheese or Die![/b][/size=3] Eric The(Sassy)Hun[>]:)]

Having been a resident of California, Hawaii, Colorado, and now Minnesota, I can attest that those are all completely accurate... But there is talks about making Minnesota's into "Yeah, you betcha, our governor can kick the patoot out of your governor!"

Massachusetts: We have Ted Kennedy and Cardinal Law: lock up the women and small boys.

As a former resident of NH (5 years), I can assure you that their motto is "Live, Freeze, and Die."

I thought Colorado's motto was "Okay, you've seen our mountains, now go the f#&k home!" Or maybe that's the unofficial motto. [;)]

Missouri: 'North? South? We still haven't decided...' 'Hey, at least we're not Arkansas...'

[b]Delaware: We Really Do Like The Chemicals In Our Water [/b] That is the old one. Its been replaced by "Delaware: A wholly-owned subsidiary of the DuPont Company, brought to you in part by a joint-venture of ICI America and Astra-Zeneca, with financing provided by MBNA America."
