Lobster, Etc.

Brad DeLong, an economist cum blogger, evidently was in Maine recently and proposed these ideas for a new slogan for the Pine Tree State:
  1. Raymond, Maine: Home of the landlocked salmon.
  2. Maine: Where the construction workers are surprised and alarmed if you obey the signs they wave.
  3. Maine: We drive fast and erratically on two lane roads.
  4. Maine: All Ur biting insects R B-long to us, California!
  5. Maine: All Ur summer rains R B-long to us, California!
  6. Maine: Lobster-themed products aren't just a good idea, they are the law
  7. Maine: Where "BLT" means "bacon, lobster, and tomato."
  8. Maine: Where McDonalds serves lobster rolls.
  9. Maine: Where 7-11 serves lobster rolls.
  10. Maine: Where Tim Horton's and Dunkin Donuts do not yet serve lobster rolls, but their resistance is futile.
  11. Maine: Where else can you get lobster tempura sushi?

- John C.L. Morgan

P.S. If you're as hooked on lobster as DeLong is, you'll like the wares of Entertain Ya Mania, a Westbrook-based company. (Hat tip: Stacy Tucker-Stanley)
