    Smile Have a Nice Day!

    Ok, seeing how NJ has been out of service for a while, I tried thinking of a subject title that he would use. Don't think I did a good job though.

    Smiley Face Could Come To License Plates
    Icon's Creator's Son Pushing Idea

    POSTED: 3:47 p.m. EDT April 15, 2003

    BOSTON -- The famous, yellow smiley face could be coming to Massachusetts license plates.

    A hearing will be held in Boston Tuesday on legislation to create a smiley face plate.

    The late Harvey Ball designed the yellow graphic 40 years ago. His son, Charles Ball, is leading the effort to put the happy icon on cars.

    He says he figures road rage would be reduced with enough smiley faces on the highways.

    Proceeds from the specialty plates would fund the World Smile Foundation. The charity distributes grants to schools and libraries across the state.

    Not creative enough to think of a title.

    But you see the shirts with the smily face and the one with the bullet hole in the forehead.

    you get sick of the face.

    How about a smiling paperbag. Think about it ADZE could be famous.

    Engine5FF, not the state, the person.

    Hey Adze, I thought it was Forrest Gump that came up with the smiley face! Didn't you see that documentary about him?

    I thought so too. I guess we better write to the Massachusetts legislature and request that they change the bill to reflect the proper origins of the smiley face.

    you get sick of the face.
    There were neumerous (sp??) (a lot) of reports of Barney being beaten up because people got sick of seeing & hearing him.
    I commute 1.5 hrs. twice a day (on the GSP), and I don't think that the guy with smilely face cutting me off or driving too slow in the fast lane, would be more liked, in fact I am more inclined to think he be a smart *****.

    Only My oppinion.

    Lew, I wonder if he means that all the garbage from Love Canal is going to Jersey.

    Everyone knows that Jersey is the Garbage State.

    OOPS, my smiley face just went from yellow to red. I guess I just jumped at the chance for some NJ bashing and got it in the wrong context. Ignore the Love Canal refrence and insert this one. "New Jersey...Beaches Are Now 72% Bio-waste Free!"

    I'm only sentenced to NJ 40 hours a week, but I think the Real NJ's headline would say: "Massachusetts Smilin' Now"

    I DO have 2 "State" bashes, though:

    Ya, ya, keep bashing the state, you only do it because you know it's so great.

    I slept at a NJ rest stop once on my way home from NC...woke up with a phlemmy, harsh cough that lasted over a year. Doctor said he didn't think New Jersey had anything to do with it, but I think he was full of it...my clean New England lungs couldn't take that air I guess

    Default ssshhhhhh !!!!!!!!!

    I know I am violating a state secret.
    You see, we (citizens of NJ) decided to keep the undesireables out of NJ making the route through most unplesant. We send you through the most industrial sections, and then we send you through farm land and to top it off we toll the s*** out of ya. We don't allow outsiders to see the splender & glory. The mountains, rivers, ect.
    It's only for those who deserve it.

    Hey....as the Southerners would attest to: we leave the jughandles and circles to them!!! Born & raised in North Jersey!!!

    Did my 18-22 year sentence, went out on 'work release' (college) and 'violated my sentence' and stayed in PA (found a good job & got married). Still come North every month to bring the 2 year old to my parents!

    I used to know I was almost home by the smell permeating my car along the NJTPK (and GSP sometimes)!!

    SANDSTROMJM-- Oh man, we're in trouble now....the secrets out!!
    Once again....the above views are my own and not that of my department. (And probably should not be construed as having any real meaning, whatsoever!)

    Wow! There aren't too many parts of PA where you can go North and get to NJ, most parts have to go East. You live in one of those special parts.

    And remember, those jughandles were designed to give Police Departments extra income...by ticketing all those out of state people that make left turns.
