Wow... there is an 'ass' joke in there somewhere...

Instead of in the governor's office.

Would you rather be represented by the Grand Canyon or a dumb, deaf and blind woman?

Which hole in the ground? This place is full of them.
2005-04-26 07:34:34 PM  
Wouldn't the quarter then collapse in on itself, creating a singularity, and thus absorbing all matter (or something like that, my quantum physics is a bit shaky). So actually, a quarter could feasibly restart the entire...

Oooo look - OMG Britny is pregnant!!!!!

my vote:


and a Cow Skull

With our State Motto: "It's a Dry Heat"

That way we don't get any more people moving here.... ;P

And to think that our Number One Industry is Tourism!

I still think they should make Washington State's a two-headed quarter.

also, she looks like to be rather legless too. my word.
2005-04-26 07:41:11 PM  
Obviously, it should be this:

Fits perfectly on the back of a quarter.

I was more impressed by the meteor crater than the canyon.
2005-04-26 07:44:52 PM  
the grand canyon is second only to the giant gaping hole in the arizona cardinals' secondary.
2005-04-26 07:46:28 PM  
North Rim > South Rim. That meteor crater's cool, but not really worth the drive.

How about a picture of Rick Renzi with the caption "We Hire The Handicapped"

I vote for H.I. as well

First thing I thought of.
2005-04-26 08:02:43 PM  
rodeofrog: I definitely agree. The North Rim is definitely better. It also seems to attract a crowd that actually enjoys and participates in the outdoors. The South Rim, while still beautiful, attracts too many fat kids in tour buses who think that enjoying a national park is buying a t-shirt.

And also, this isn't why I like the North Rim better, but I have noticed that the North Rim attracts the European tourists and the South Rim attracts the Japanese tourists. Not sure why. Just seems to be that way.

Not to mention Glen Campbell and Steve Wariner too.

Oh and the Beatles (Get Back).....

It's too late.. It's a shame so many idiots from California had to come and fark the state up.

The Mint has been releasing quarters featuring individual states since 1999 at the rate of five a year.

2005-04-26 08:07:21 PM  

Plus the busloads of foreigners that visit the south rim, I felt like I was in another country last time I was there. Couldn't understand a single word that was being spoken all around me!?!?!

A million immigrants couldn't be wrong.
2005-04-26 08:07:50 PM  
I thought of the meteorite crater as well... RTFA I suppose.
2005-04-26 08:08:11 PM  
The Grand Canyon was formed more from the ground coming up than the river going down... Is this still a hole? Does it really matter?
2005-04-26 08:23:28 PM  
Yup, this sure is one big hole.

I know, at least I can kick the illegals around and no one cares.

Try and kick a Californian around and they get all crazy and vote to change the zoning laws on you, jerks. This is why my five acre lot is surrounded by teeny, tiny quarter acre lots.

I heard that they're going to use the new state motto:

"To Hell With Daylight Savings Time"

I guess it depends on your perspective
2005-04-26 08:35:34 PM  
I doubt this could fit on the back of a quarter, but my suggestion for Arizona would be a picture of the turbines in Boulder Dam being replaced by Barry Goldwater, who must even now be spinnning at a high rate in his grave over what Bush is doing to this country in the name of "Conservativism."
2005-04-26 08:36:39 PM  
Sorry. Meant to say that wasn't a troll.

Also, I, too, thought of the meteor hole before the one made by the river.
2005-04-26 08:37:52 PM  
Photoshop of what I thought of when I read the following sentence:
"Another 19 percent like the idea of a quarter featuring the saguaro cactus"

2005-04-26 08:48:42 PM  
well, what else are they going to put on the back? The only thing this state is known for is the Grand Canyon- unless you con't the thousands of border-jumpers each year.

Oh, and "Homercles_cares_not_for_beans" it doesn't help to put that on the back of the quarter if the target audience isn't able to read...
2005-04-26 08:55:49 PM  
Better than one of New Mexico's proposed designs. It has a mushroom cloud and says "birthplace of the atomic bomb." Personally, I'd prefer a spaceship sticking up out of the ground with little alien bodies around it.
2005-04-26 09:02:44 PM  
Does anyone else here think the worst quarter of them all is Indiana's race car? It's seriously just a quarter with an indy car on it. What the hell? That is the best you can come up with? Was the panel bribed by profeshional racers or something?
2005-04-26 09:07:22 PM  
gigantic hole?

Phew, I wasn't the only one. Why the Meteor Crater came to mind over the more famous Grand Canyon is beyond me.
2005-04-26 09:13:35 PM  
I vote for a quarter showing a mushroom cloud where Palo Verde used to be.

/Phoenix sucks
2005-04-26 09:15:24 PM  
Also a scrawny old cow with fake tits would be apropros.
2005-04-26 09:16:29 PM  
I thought they were talking about the crater as well.

Homercles_cares_not_for_beans, you da man. It can definitely fit on the back

UofA > ASU

Tucson > Phoenix

Crater > Grand Canyon

That is all.

2005-04-26 09:17:06 PM  
Maybe there should just be a picture of California on the back.

My favorite is the Virginia quarter.

That image of the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria gives me goose bumbs everytime I see it.
