    New Hampshire's is "Live Free or Die"...:rolleyes: Bit aggressive.

    They actually have it printed on the license plates.

    If I lived there I'd register my car in Maine.

    Nope, 1/4 Scouse, the rest is Italian. Born and Bred in the US. My club has and always will be Liverpool FC however.

    I'm a huge US Nats supporter though.

    The state I live in, Baden-Württemberg, has the world's dullest motto:

    Wir können alles.
    We can do everything.

    Thankfully, everyone elsewhere in Germany takes the piss out of this by adding a bit to the end:

    Wir können alles. Außer Hochdeutsch.
    We can do everything. Except speak proper German.

    They do have a point, the regional dialect here is pretty intense and unfathomable at times. :rolleyes:
    Well, all the time, actually.
