name my state

This post started me thinking. Yeah. Having a republic named "Georgia" does make the news kinda confusing sometimes. But what else are we gonna call my home state?

North Florida. Bullshit on that! I don't want my state named after a place filled with transplanted yankees, bad drivers and expatriated Cubans (not that I have anything against expatriated Cubans).

East Alabama. Okay, I could live with that name, but I don't want to.

South South Carolina. Naw. Sounds too much like a stutter.

Acidmanland. I really LIKE that one, but it just doesn't work in the Ray Charles song. Too many syllables.

Crackerfornia. HELL NO! Just the sound of it makes my skin crawl. Don't even go there.

Atlanta. If the city doesn't stop spreading like crab grass, the entire state will be one big suburb of Atlanta in a few more years. But that place is filled with transplanted yankees and Cynthia McKinney, so I don't like that name, either.

Maybe we should just stick with the name we have for our state and demand that the other place change the name of their country. We could bribe their government with peanuts, peaches and old Allman Brothers music.

They might go for the idea.


Call it "Confederacy". Think how annoyed various people would be...

I don't know about the whole state, but I established MacbeauLand as an independant republic, nestled in Bloomingdale...

They can piss off... we have the nukes and Coca Cola. Hence, we get whatever name we want.

Well, I'm a Yankee....or worse, a Californian, but I think Georgia is a great name with a fine history and I wouldn't change a thing.
