Our favorite #rejectedarkansasmottos

Twitter has been alight for the last 24 hours or so with #rejectedarkansasnicknames and #rejectedarkansasmottos, a hilarious, hive-mind response to a bill from David Sanders, R-Little Rock, that calls for Arkansas to change its motto from "The Natural State" back to "The Land of Opportunity." You know, to attract more industry to the state.

(In related news, I'm going to start running again. If we're giving ourselves nicknames before, you know, actually earning them, feel free to immediately start calling me "Dash Lightning, sexy millionaire")

Leave it to Twitter to dole out a much-needed send up of the bill.

Check out our 15 growing list of favorites (in no particular order) after the jump.

Also, Rock City Tees, may have the funniest Twitter account in town (@rockcitytees), will print their favorite. Gotta replace that Neil Diamond tee somehow.
