I really wish they kept statistics so we could award most forgetable state.
Comment with which ones you forgot.
Seems like there are a few states that are forgettable.
I like the every county in England challenge.

Malta! Pshaw, that hardly counts.
Wyoming, Michigan, and Alabama. Ask me tomorrow and I'll tell you different.
Couldn't spell Nunavut for the life of me, but you only need 12 for some reason. They have a neat syllabary
Yeah, Nunavut's a toughy.
And the bug's been fixed.
Seems like Wyoming and New Jersey are the most forgettable states so far.
How is New Jersey forgettable? One visit and you'll never get that smell out of your clothes.
Actually, I don't find it forgettable because I am from New Jersey. I'm still surprised. Everybody knows New Jersey!
I always heard that New Hampshire was a commonly forgotten one. I find that state much more forgettable than NJ. It also has a significantly smaller population than NJ.
Wyoming, I believe, because no one actually lives there. The name "Wyoming" comes from an old Indian word meaning "No state here." (That's a joke from the cartoon Garfield and Friends. I still remember it! It's hilarious!)
I got them all eventually, but there were three that took me a long time to remember. They were West Virginia, Arkansas and Nebraska.

Re: Jersey represent, yo!

ha! I loved that show!
(I don't know how I missed New Jersey! Who can forget the traffic?)
My home state of Maryland seems to be doing well in the forgettable running too.
Also, U.S. Acres for life. Wikipedia has tons on Garfield and Friends
, by the way.
great info on wikipedia.
I remember distinctly, though, that many of the quickies were animated versions of published Garfield strips. The authors don't seem to realize this, and only refer to them as "30-45 second gags."
Binky the Clown! I remember.
excellent. I loved that show.
