CA Sacra-mint-o, NC Grape Hatteras, TX Alamo a la mode, VT Maple Syrup and my favorite name, TN Tennesienna just to name a few. Of course my home state, NJ, got jobbed once again - the self proclaimed Garden State got New Jersey Boardwalk. It's dirty brown and people walk all over it. Promote this thread!

Damn. Lobsters are only red once you kill them. In the wild, they're dark green. They should have gone with some sort of pine tree green, since there are about 79 billion pine trees in this state. Well, I guess it beats New Jersey, though!

Nobody has called corn "maize" since that phony Indian on that corn starch commercial did back in the 70's. Bravo, Crayola. Very creative.

I guess that's ok, considering everything state-related is that color (flag, logo, etc...). We love our blues.

Considering there are FOUR colors (red, white, yellow, & black for those not in the know) in our state flag, you'd think they'd chose one of them for the crayon. I agree with you. BOO! I was pleased to see DC got a crayon. If they didn't, I'd expect Mayor Williams to be up in arms, because you KNOW they concentrate on the important things in the beltway. Sigh. (In a note that is in no way related to crayons, he's gonna fuck-up getting the Expos. It's far from a done deal.)

So it was grade school kids who came up with the names.

If that ain't telling a story...never mind PA - at least it resembles Black and Blue Maryland - guess they don't have a "Baltimore" color...Kiwi...ha ha ha Pieman (or anyone else with hoo-dlum-s) - we need to move to Washington (State)! Looks the easiest to wash off the walls...and where is the cruel metallic object that sharpens? FLEA

Montana gets "Big Sky," baby blue. It's called "Tarheel Blue" for a reason, you imbecilic little shits. Montana barely deserves to be a state, much less have a crayon.
