Folks from the state of Michigan, USA, are unique in that they can easily describe the general whereabouts of their home town by pointing to a place on their right palm.

The idea is to package and sell self-adhesive open palm pictures and stars. Michiganders could put the star on the palm and the palm on a car window or bumper. Non-Michiganders could cut three fingers off and flip everybody the bird. Everybody wins.

       What if I am from Manistique? Where does the star go? I always thought that Michigan was broken into two parts. Are you going to ignore everyone from the upper peninsula?

       I hope that palm and star can be seen from outerspace.

       Speaking of peninsulas, just wait until I announce my Florida version.

       Is that like the Mull of Kintyre map?

       For the UP, just carry a rubber vampire bat with you.

       I speculate that Michiganders only use one hand to describe their state, because using both hands makes it look like they are throwing gang signs to each other. Every Michigander who knew about the Uppers has already been shot dead while visiting Detroit.
