(Don't mind me, just pretend I'm not here)
New Mexico is home to odd signs - notably "Gusty Winds May Exist" - but this one surprised even me:
"Experience pure elation. Take a Santa Fe-cation."
I'm not making this up - here's the tourist board's website:
On the one hand, it's true that the "Fe" in Santa Fe (capitol of New Mexico) is pronounced "Fay", but did the author of this slogan not step back and look at their handiwork with an eye to how it would appear to someone else?
It is with a great deal of perverse pride that I call this state my home
w-a-y too early on a Sunday morning to see the keys clearly, or even hit them...
My mind is racing with Santa Fe- California references, not to mention some way to reference taking a vacation from deafness.
I'll get my coat....
