The Spare-Tire State

We just got back from our five day visit in Missouri. Like many states, Missouri uses a silhouette of the state on its state highway signs. Unlike other states, however, Missouri distorts the shape of the state so three-digit route numbers will fit. That's right, they make the state fatter for the sake of the highway number. Keep this in mind the next time your kid flunks a geography test.
