                                                       (PART 1 OF 5)

Have you ever questioned just how real and honest those state nicknames and sayings are on our license plates?  Even wish that they more honestly reflected the persona and personality of the state?  Well here is a snarky attempt, in five parts, at calling a spade a spade.

Over the next four days I will include another installment on this snarky adventure.  Each day I will add a new Part and ten additional states.   Look for them.

1. Alabama          Alabama- Proof That Even God Has a Sense of Humor!                  

2. Alaska                  Home of the Wasilla Hillbillies!

3. Arizona                Arizona, Come Feel the Freedom!
                                    (Brown People Not Included)    

4. Arkansas                   Dumb, Dumber, Arkansas!

5. California             The Granola State, Where Fruits and Nuts Make a Good Marriage

6. Colorado                  Rocky Mountain H...ii..ggg…hhhhh h h

7. Connecticut        Home of the Sperm Whale and the Lollipop

8. Delaware             Delaware- Even We Don't Know Why We're a State

9. Florida                 Land of 10,000 Strip Malls    

10. Georgia                More Crackers than Nabisco!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
