research from the state's Office of Tourism

Sounds legit. "Here's a study we did showing how awesome we are at getting tourists to come here. Can we get some pay increases?"

Mexicans represent the largest pool of international tourists

Intern: "Are you a US citizen?"

'Tourist': "No."

Intern: "What country are you from?"

'Tourist': "Méjico."

Intern: "Mexican tourist, check."

'Tourist': "Que es un 'tourist'?"

Arizona is a great place to hike and see some things in the west. Wait, northern Arizona is a great place to travel too. Below the Mogollon rim is just too damn hit, at least for me.

I wish I could have gone there this year.  I love Arizona so much I want to take it behind the middle school and impregnate it.

 Louisiana has record numbers of tourism over the past few years, but we're still retarded. Don't be too excited, AZ, because you're still Arizona.

Mount Lemmon and other mountains near Tucson are pretty darn nice in the summer due to the increased elevation, but most of our tourism is in the winter, because winters in southern Arizona are beautiful.

Ah, Arizona - come for the painted desert, stay for the bigoted pharmicists.

Don't sell yourselves short. You have plenty of bigots in all types of professions.

But it was this particular asshat mentioned on the Fark Business page, just two posts down from the post about AZ tourism.

I vacationed in Arizona a few months ago.  I was constantly getting overrun by busloads of Chinese tourists.
