Funny Money: Part II
Having just ranted about the US Quarters, I decided to throw my hat into the ring and suggest more appropriate designs that reflect what impressions people actually have of each state:

Alabama: A group picture of the band Alabama
Alaska: The Exxon Valdez listing to one side and oil pouring out. Maybe a beached whale washed up on the shore in the background
Arkansas: Clinton (You knew it had to be) in the backseat of a State Trooper vehicle being serviced by Jennifer Flowers and Paula Jones
California: Overhead shot of OJ's low-speed chase in the White Bronco
OJ putting on the leather glove with that goofy grin
Colorado: Wildfires burning out of control
Connecticut: The Foxwoods Casino
A picture of the Welcome to NY sign you see as you leave the state on I-95
Florida: A scene of a Perkin's Restaurant car lot filled with parked Lincoln Continentals
Georgia: Ted Turner's smiling mug
Idaho: Either the Looney Toons logo or a picture of a Cuckoo Clock
Illinois: Bueller? ....Bueller? (As spoken by Ben Stein)
Louisiana: Any scene from Girls Gone Wild
Nevada: Sigfried & Roy
New Hampshire: An Interstate Liquor Store peddling Sweepstakes Tickets
New Jersey: A Mount Rushmore-esque scape with the busts of Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora & Bruce Springsteen overlooking Atlantic City
North & South Carolina: A shared coin showing Sens. Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond with the caption Celebrating Dixie's Prehistoric Monuments printed on garland overhead
Utah: Two well dressed men in dark suits ringing a doorbell.....
Vermont: A Civil Union
Wisconsin: A Packers Cheesehead roasting a bratwurst on a hibachi outside of "Frozen Lambeau Field"
