Gov Codey solicited the public's help late last month after rejecting a slogan dreamed up by a New York branding and image consultant, Lippincott Mercer. The state paid the firm $260,000 for its effort, "New Jersey: We'll win you over." The governor said he scrapped the idea because it seemed to be based on the premise that the state has something to prove.

Here's are some of the public's lower level responses:

"You pay, we play: Compliments of NJ politicians."

"New Jersey: We'll tax the #&[email protected] out of you."

"Come to New Jersey -- It's not as bad as it smells."

"New Jersey: It Always Smells Like This"

"New Jersey: Come Glow With Us"

"New Jersey -- 3/4 of the state is nice"

"New Jersey: More than just a mall"

"Bada Bing! Choose New Jersey"

"New Jersey: You Got a Problem With That?"

"New Jersey: Where the Martians Landed."

"Most of Our Elected Officials Have Not Been Indicted."

"NJ: How You Doin'?!"

"New Jersey: We spent over $200,000 of taxpayer money for a crummy slogan and then got one for free from the people they should have gone to in the first place."

"Welcome to New Jersey: Expect delays."

"Got Jug-Handles?"

"Why should death end your voting rights?"

"If we can't fix it, it's not an election."

"New Jersey: We can always use another relative on the payroll."

"NJ: It isn't what you know, it's who you know."

"All payoffs gladly accepted here."

"We're not as corrupt as we used to be."

"NJ and you, going broke together."

"If our auto insurance rates don't drive you to Pennsylvania, our property taxes will."

"New Jersey: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, tax it some more."

"New Jersey -- A state of confusion."

"New Jersey: Where did the gardens go?"

"Toxic waste for all!"

"Not much space left, but we will squeeze you in."

"Sold to Corzine!"

"New Jersey: Hey, at least it's not West Virginia!"

Dear Beer, Thanks. :D
