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.)

I've been working for an FLA based company for the past 20 years and have visited the state many times for work, I've yet to discover what the FLA stereotype is, as no one I know actually _comes_ from Florida. Hmm ... maybe *that's* the stereotype?!.
