Weekly Geeks Quote a Day: Alternate City/State Mottoes

Found these gems in one of my old quote books. No offense to anyone who lives in any of the states or cities mentioned here!

"We are what we are." --motto of Lake Woebegon

"You gotta live somewhere." --motto for Cleveland suggested by Jimmy Brogan

"It's a living." --motto for the U.S. Army suggested by Mort Sahl

"What died?" --motto for New Jersey suggested by Steven Pearl

"What the hell are you looking at?" --license plate slogan for New York suggested by Steven Pearl

"Eat cheese or die." --motto for Wisconsin suggested by Joel McNally

"Not you." --bumper sticker in the state where the license plate slogan is "You've Got a Friend in Pennsylvania"

What alternate mottoes can you come up with for your home state?

I wish I could think of something for Connecticut...

Here are my two (hopefully not too lame) attempts at mottoes for NY:

Commute in; commute out.

Deli Heaven!

I am from Michigan.

Right now all I can think about is Detroit's ex mayor and that is Baaaaad.

300 pages left (maybe none now). Jack Builder and Aliena stay with you. Are you planning on reading World Without End too? It's very good.
