New Jersey needs our help

Acting New Jersey governor Richard Codey has thrown open New Jersey's search for a new state motto to the public. Heh heh, big mistake. Mindful of the state's legacy of everything from Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen to mobsters, political corruption, gambling and toxic waste dumps, some suggestions have been:
New Jersey: You Got a Problem With That?

NJ: How You Doin'?

New Jersey: Most of Our Elected Officials Have Not Been Indicted.

New Jersey: We'll Win You Over

The Ocean, The Motion, The Magic

From Ol' Blue Eyes to the Boss: Jersey Is Singing Your Song

Born to Fun

Bada Bing! Choose New Jersey

New Jersey: It Always Smells Like This (my favorite)

New Jersey: Come Glow With Us

New Jersey: You Want A ##$%##! Motto? I Got Yer ##$%##! Motto Right Here!

New Jersey: It is against the law to "frown" at a police officer

New Jersey: We know where Jimmy Hoffa is buried

New Jersey: Where 3 rights do make a left

New Jersey: You can go bowling at 1:30 A.M. (with automatic scoring)!

NJ: The the only state that can drop the "New" in its name (You know, that's right. Try "Mexico" or "York" or "Hampshire", it just won't work.)

New Jersey: That douchebag Jay Leno needs to stop with the corny NJ jokes before we send some South Jersey chick to beat his ass (a little wordy)

New Jersey: Where you can climb a mountain in the morning, swim in the ocean in the afternoon, and get robbed at gunpoint in Newark by night

New Jersey: Home of the Boardwalk cheesesteak with vinegar fries

New Jersey: Where you can see the Manhattan skyline from some part of every town

You may send your suggestion(s) to the governor's "Call to Action" website: Unfortunately, the deadline is Novemmber 14 of this very year, so time is, uh, really, really short.
