Hmm... "Calimaine" sounds like a lotion.

But why not "Washida"? While we have our problems up here in the Pacific Northwest, I am mildly displeased at having to be associated with Florida in the first place and more so with them getting top billing. :P

(For the record, I am a Washingtonian who lived in Florida for several years, so I have experience with both states, notwithstanding a childhood spent in Kansas, Misery [sic], and briefly New Jersey. There are few US stereotypes I have not yet had to contend with.)
