No wonder nobody objects to Mitt claiming that Syria is Iran’s route to the sea!
This whole time I’ve been from Rhode Island and had no idea….
Me too. But it wouldn’t surprise me that the state gov’t has lied to us the whole time about our shape.
I have 2 Rhode Islands asleep on the couch.
Mine’s a Rhode Island Red. I’m thinking of getting another, but I think the family’s convinced that, much like the US, one Rhode Island at a time is sufficient, especially when it pees in the entryway.
Those will be the general contours after the next big earthquake.
It’s not even a very good Texas.
Keep Seattle weird.
I’m from Austin and all I can think is… gawd… I wish we had Seattle’s weather… Today will be 90 degrees in Austin… Seattle? 52!…. GAH… *turns the a/c down a bit*
I’m from Austin, too! I totally agree, except I’ve been to Seattle in the winter and I have to say that’s pretty much the only reason I don’t move there. Brrr!
I could tell you were from Texas (as opposed to… say, Austin, Minnesota) because you said our winters were cold! Everyone else says, “Gosh, you have such mild, temperate winters. If only the rest of the year wasn’t so overcast, I’d move here.”
What I’d really like is Uranus
You’ll have to buy me dinner first.
And drinks. LOTS of drinks.
I saw it as a cow head with a fez hat on top
I live in the pan handle of Colorado and would love to collect some state jewelry.
I’m always moved when I hear that old battlecry:
Remember the Space Needle!
Our ten gallon hats are filled with ten gallons of coffee!
They wouldn’t Seattle for anything less up there.
We always knew Texas was a backwards state!
Boo, hiss from a Texan!
But I thumbed you up, anyways, for being such a clever one.
As for Rhode Island, the cowboy said, “get a long, little doggie”, so I did!
That makes R.I. a wiener in my book!
Geography,like Global Warming or Evolution,is just a matter of opinion. This supports my position on UnIntellegant Design!
UnintElegant Design is my plus-size hipster clothing label.
You may have thought there were no plus-sized hipsters, but you’ve probably just never heard of them.
But it is no longer obscure!
You told us about it!
I live near Silver Lake, CA which is hipster capital of the world
damn hipsters. [i'm doing an art show there in December, gonna take 'em for all they're worth! mwahaha!]
I live in CA, but I love to travel internationally to places like New Mexico and New England. I should collect some of these necklaces on my upcoming trips.
It looks like you only have to buy a couple and just rotate and/or flip them for each state.
What about New Hampshire? or New York?
I live in Washington and I feel like that is a beautiful depiction of our state. I don’t know what you guys are talking about.
Yes, I too live in Washington, the second largest state.
If you look at the shop, the seller has Florida backwards. She’s from Scotland, but that’s no excuse – this is America sister, get it right!
*ahem* “Washington” and Illinois are also backwards.
So are Colorado. And Wyoming.
What? You can’t tell that the rectangles are backwards?
That image of California is sideways.
As a Scot, and behalf of my people, I must apologise for this person mixing up their states. That’s obviously Louisiana, right?
Scotland is the one with the kangaroos, right?
and pan pipes
I live in Seattle-
This is actually what a banana slug looks like when encountering salt.
untapped market? New reason to outrage PETA?
Utah looks like something I saw on a bike at the Solstice parade.
(The parade starts with naked people on bikes. Fun for the whole family!)
I was at that solstice parade a couple years ago. In Freemont. With my family! We saw the huge troll under the bridge, too.
Hooray for the naked bikers of the Fremont solstice parade! There’s usually half a dozen people with creative, well-applied body paint that distracts you from their wobbly bits. The other hundred odd riders though… Or, if you’re lucky, it’s raining (as usual) and no one is in body paint anymore…
An unfortunate fashion statement.
LOL omg I can’t believe I’m on regretsy (hi mum?)
LET ME EXPLAIN MYSELF
I am Scottish and I twisted my head and tried to figure out what state it was and I got it wrong!
I swear I’m not totally stupid. My boyfriend is sitting pishing himself laughing at me.
I’m laughing myself, I had a shit day and this cheered me up even though I am also embarrassed.
Cheers Regretsians <3 (ya bunch of fat jealous bawbags! )
If it makes you feel any better, I’ve seen plenty of Americans make similar mistakes (if not worse!). And I don’t mean with other countries in the world – I mean with the US states.
It’s hard to remember 52 state names!!
It’s hard to remember my own name!
“Its Mrs Tottendale!”
You’ll probably never see this, but I love you. That is one of my favorite musicals.
Silly, there’s at least 58 states.
America has states? Whoda thunk?
You’re very welcome! Pointing and laughing is all part of the service.
Thanks for being a good sport!
Aw <3 Scotland – home of the mighty haggis beast and a derpy Kerry
The Mighty Haggis Beast would be an amazing heavy metal band name…
This post has now reached a new level of awesomeness. I love it when the seller gets in on the laughs. Cheers, indeed!
If you want to know what makes this even worse…the states have LETTERS on them! I assumed the letters should be at the back..hence the states are the wrong way round. And out of site out of mind, so I forgot about those and clearly named them whatever I liked.
So yeah now I feel extra stupid. I think I just want the things gone xD I have 10 states, 3 of each pice, here is a picture
If you want one convo me on Etsy and you can have it for cost of shipping ($3) and a little bit to cover the chain and clasp ($1..so $4 in total..yay look at me I can do math at least!) So I swear that’s not for profit at all and it’s not to boost etsy sales numbers…give me your paypal email and I can invoice you there. I’m gonna go bed soon, but if you want one I can get back to you tomorrow
Have you made “The states of Mexico” collection yet?!
Aww, I was hoping you’d have Ohio or Indiana in your United States of Derp collection (just kidding!) but looking through the rest of your shop is a treat! Once I get paid, I might do some early Xmas shopping there. I know a couple gals who would love your skull or gun pendants. Really sweet stuff you have there!
Bwah-ha-ha! Indiana is totally in the US of Derp!
I can remember where the Firth of Forth is in Scotland but never Firths of 1-3. I have to loch the map every time.
Kudos for coming to play and being a good sport!
You would not believe how many people ask tor my email which starts with Glasgow and they say Can you spell that? I say Glashow like the town in Scotland. They give a blank look. Then I might get Glascow. Yeah Glass Cow. That’s it.
Maybe they saw this glass cow on Etsy?
AND IT’s UPCYCLED! that’s a cash cow for shizzle!
I like the word “bawbags.”
and she says “Hi Mum” like totes brill
Sarah Palin cant see Russia from her house either
Bahahah! I like it much better as Kerrtopia!
Looks like she already caught the mistake and updated it
Some kind lady messaged me and told me it was wrong Then I checked my stats and was like “oh…”
Just one more little thing: All three states are shown backwards. If they’re the same on both sides, you could save time by just flipping the images.
But that’s what they look like when you look at it through your throat chakra while you contemplate the differences between Colorado and Wyoming.
Aw man, now I feel uncool.
Thanks for being awesome about it though! We need more unbutthurt people like you <3
I’ve took the piss out enough things myself, I think I deserve some of it back haha
Regretsy Instant Karma now in convenient spray can and our patented* double strength essence of kale!
Spoke-ane is the wagon wheel of the Pacific North West!
Walla Walla…A place so nice they named it twice!
Thats where the Chocolate factory is?!
No, but the State Prison is there. Yeah, don’t ask how I know that *backs out of the thread whistling innocently
Remember the Yakimo! If it wasn’t for those brave men, the Canuxicans would at the Columbia, and using our hops to make Corolson beer!
I loved swimming in the Rio Columbia when I was a wee bot.
WoW. This has made me realize how pointy our states are.
Also, how would you do Hawaii?
Hawaii could be a charm bracelet. Or piercings.
Michigan could be earrings. Then your head is Lake Michigan.
I’ve met people like that.
I’m still laughing. At first I thought it was a county, then realized not. And I’ve no clue what the counties look like in Washington.
Wobbly around the edges, and of different sizes.
*Insert testicle joke*
No no no, you don’t insert the testicles. You insert the other bit.
Well, the counties ARE generally longer than they are wide…
I really need to learn to not be drinking anything when I come here.
Hot coffee REALLY burns the sinuses
try giggle snorting ginger beer soda at 2:00 am it burns terribly ! and the longer it sits the hotter it gets.
She could have at least spelled Warshington correctly.
Grandma? How’d you get on the internet?
I had no idea Rhode Island had floppy ears. Or a penis.
I know from experience- the western side of Rhode Island totally stinks.
I’d order California, but I’m sure it would be broke before it arrived.
