NY: keeping MA and PA apart

Why things should never be done by committees, Part 6.02 x 10^23: a task force of thirty-two worked eighteen months on a new tourism slogan for Washington state, and came up with "SayWA".

I await Maine's pitch to lure travelers to its seafood restaurants, which logically should read "EatME", right? *

* Disclosure: I could swear I actually saw that on a billboard in Massachusetts back in the middle Seventies. Of course, I drank more then.

I thought about this a bit longer, and decided that "Exclusive OR" might work, sort of, but "Penis NV" probably would be a hard sell.

Oklahoma, of course, is OK. Used to say so on the license plates. Didn't see any "Iowa is IA" plates, but what the heck.

Penis NV. *snerk*

Just from the number you assigned this, I could tell it involved making a mountain out of a Mole-hill.

I was wondering if anyone would pick up on that.
