New Mexico is home to odd signs - notably "Gusty Winds May Exist" - but this one surprised even me:

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 smiley - brave
