N.J.: We Can Take a Joke
The acting governor thought "New Jersey: We'll Win You Over" sounded apologetic. So the state's searching for more motto ideas. Inquirer columnist Monica Yant Kinney got 400, including:
New Jersey: You got a problem with that?
New Jersey: Corrupt and proud
New Jersey: We can have you killed
New Joyzee: Better than Boise
New Jersey: Come glow with us
New Jersey: What happens here stays in a landfill
For more, read her Sunday column, then Tuesday's, where she picks a winner. But for pungent wit, it's tough to top Saturday Night Live's suggestion, delivered by Amy Poehler (above): "New Jersey and You: Who Farted?"
Disclaimer to fellow New Jerseyans: Just kidding, of course.
