If we don't win the state flower polling, I'll burn down every Viola Sororia in Wisconsin.

Lost me at "Blessed with.....and Skyline Chili". That stuff is horse meat masquerading as garbage pretending to be imitation Chili.

Proudly dispensing unbridled arrogance since 1983.

The man has a point. 

Taquitos.

It's true. I try Skyline chili every 5 years just to make sure it hasn't all of a sudden become amazing. I haven't not been disappointed yet. Except for one NYE when I was greased on Night Train and MD 20/20. That night it tasted amazing.

Wow. Haters.
I absolutely frickin love Skyline. If I had the money, I'd bring a franchise back to Toledo.

Skyline is dog food on noodles.

I'm with you on this one Brew, I would gladly REPLACE Skyline Chili with Buffalo Wild Wings since that started in Ohio too.

Cleveland's motto should always be "Winter is coming... and is going to stay for virtually 70% of the year."

Time and change will surely show how firm they friendship... O-HI-O.

The Ohio Motto is clearly the coolest!

Terrapin fans' translation makes me think of this:

Glad Ohio came on top again.

Did you know Little Caesar's owner Michael Ilitch is also the owner of the Red Wings and Tigers? 
The more you know!

What about Dominoes owner, Hail? Does he own the U of Michigan?

Wow the Mitten State sure has a knack for crap pizza chains.

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.  ~ Bruce Lee

God, I love Skyline.  Thank you for bringing it up.  I'm also appreciative that I can now say "manly deeds" in Italian.

Dairy-fed intellect and pure, unhinged sass.

The state motto of Wisconsin simply means,
Forward, to the next bar.

Dammit, I don't know any French people in Minnesota!  How did we get a motto like that?!  Besides, it sounds like 'toilet of the north'!

Yeah, that's a few states to the east.

Indiana's crossroads the 80/90 toll road contain Hammond, IN Gary, IN and South Bend, IN. Should be called the butthole of America.

Not a fan of Ohio's, mostly because I'm not religious and things are possible with Urban instead. :P

How firm thy friendship..

Some of these remind me of William Wallace and Braveheart.

Iowa is a close second or 1B, IMO.

I knew a girl in college who was always seeking a pleasant peninsula.

Indiana's cracks me up the most. "Crossroads of America." Ha. EVERYBODY thinks they are at the crossroads.
Guess what Indiana, I lived in your state for two years of my life, and it sucked. Definitely NOT at any kind of crossroads. More like fly-over country.

"If you're not changing, you're falling behind."

HS

To me, calling yourself a crossroads is like saying you are the pass-through everyone is forced to visit on their way to somewhere better.  "Thanks for stoppin' by."

Indiana isn't that bad man. I lived in speedway most of my whole life right next to the Indy 500. Indianapolis isn't a bad town at all.

HS

True that. Indy is a decent town.

No shout out to Ohio's former motto "Imperium In Imperio" or "Empire within an Empire"?

HS

Wow, TIL. Just a brief, two-year window for that one, unfortunately.

Are sure that Maryland's doesn't translate to, "hey girlfriend, pass that fattie."
?

I thought Ohio's slogan is what is on the Jim Rhodes statue at the Statehouse: "Profit is not a dirty word in Ohio." That is truly Delaneyesque. 

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
