Ha funny!

In Australia each state has a motto, too, and some of them are kind of true. For example...

Queensland - Beautiful One Day, Perfect The Next (True)

But the state where I come from, Western Australia is very far away from everything and its capital, Perth, is the most isolated city in the world. There are only 2 million people in the whole state and yet in terms of land mass you could fit Texas, New Zealand, Germany, Ireland, Great Britain and Japan into it very comfortably. It is notoriously known for being a bit of a backwater and very quiet and a nice place to bring up a family etc but really, a big country town...lol.

Anyway, our motto is `State of Excitement'. That just cracks me up. I DON'T THINK SO!!!!!
