Berlin has some financial problems, so our Mayor created the slogan "Broke, but sexy" and it's no joke

But this list is great. We don't usually have mottos here.

Maryland: If you can do something now, it would be better to do it later, and best if you never do it at all.

That's why pretty much everyone in my town (except for my family) is straddling the poverty line.

I'm just saying, I'm FROM Indiana, and I dont' really understand...obviously we've never had a tidal wave...we're situated on a lake...I am too tired for jokes I think, taking things way to literally, just ignore me.

Don't worry about it....I'm next to you in terms of the lake.

And I also take most jokes VERY literally...so don't worry about that either
