Mikeland?

A while back, Mike wrote a post about having a state named after him, and he called it "Mikeland." That's right, Mikeland. To quote the Reluctant Dragon, "Not very good, is it?"

For the first edition of our new section, Game Time, we at the Pake Shlake Band are giving everybody a chance to do better.

If you got to name a state, what would you call it?


For those of you visiting from outside the U.S., replace the word "state" with "province," "district," "county," "ward," or "what-have-you."

So post your answers to that question, and the best answer might just get a shoutout on Monday. But don't hold your breath. Unless you are in a particularly stinky room, then by all means, hold away.

  1. I'd call it Blue. Because I think this country could use another state dedicated to that colour.

  3. "The First"
    ...so that stupid Delaware will no longer have sole claim to the name "The First State"

  4. You know how people from York moved to America and made New York? And people from Hampshire, New Hampshire, people from Mexico, New Mexico?

    Well I come from New Jersey, so I would call my state New New Jersey.

  5. I would name my state Misterissippi because I'm all for gender equality. And like Mississippi is abbreviated MS, Misterissippi would naturally be abbreviated MR.

  6. Actually, I changed my mind.

    I'd name my state Youdaho.

  8. The most beautiful state names are all in Spanish- California, Florida, Colorado, Jalisco. I suggest a new state with a beautiful Spanish name, "Abatido". It means dejected.
