HOLLYWOOD, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- Comedian and talk show host Chris Hardwick asked his audience to rebrand every state in America on Wednesday's episode of @Midnight, and fans of the fledgling Comedy Central talk show did not disappoint.
The challenge started as part of a game called Hashtag Wars, a sort of competitive roast where celebrities hurl jokes and insults using Twitter-style hashtags for categories.
"Idaho: The home office of the Klan -- no seriously! It's the home office of the Klan," snarked Jack Black when Hardwick asked him for #NewStateMottos.
Twitter users kept it going, Tweeting their favorite insults and in-jokes about each state's troubled history, cultural stereotypes and bad drivers.
Below is sample of the best Twitter had to offer for each state in America.
