A State by any Other Name

Everyone knows that Florida is the Sunshine Sate. I have come up with a few names that I think they could possibly rename the State Slogan.

1. The Accident State. We have seen more car accidents here than I have ever seen in my entire life. Because of # 2 and #3.
2. The U-Turn State. The way the roads are built down here it is nearly impossible to make a left anywhere there is not a traffic light. You have to go to the next major intersection and make a U-turn, and then make a right hand turn.
3. Run the Red Light State- Most of the people I have spoken to in Florida, warned us that people run red lights all the time. Due to the fact that most of the roads have a speed limit of 45 mph sometimes it is hard to stop in time. People call it the two car rule. If you are waiting at a red light facing north, once the light turns green, you wait for 2 cars to go through east/west light that just turn red before you should proceed.
4. The Blue Hair State- Obvious reasons.
5. The Shopping Center State- They are everywhere.
6. The Blue Roof State. Since there were 4 hurricanes last year, there are blue tarps on tons of roofs down here. Waiting for Insurance money.

Just a few. I am sure there are more.

How about the Child Molester State? How many dudes have been arrested lately for molesting and/or killing little girls?
