Arkansas makes no damn sense. Why would a state be named after another state, by appending a prefix no-one understands? And then pronouncing it according to no known rules of any existing Human language?
Its biggest city is called "little."
Oklahomans, however, throng there in droves, or drive there in thongs, to enjoy the beautiful, scenic tourist attractions. However, two state governors in the last twenty years have fled the state to seek asylum in Washington, DC, so maybe they know something the Okies don't.
And what the heck is "Texarkana?" Seriously, do you ever hear people talk about "Verhampachusetts" or "Calorevada?" (On the plus side, when the people in Atlanta are thirsty, they can always send someone there to pick up the beer.)
One theory holds that Arkansas was formed by rebel pirates (possibly Pastafarians) from Kansas. The original name being: the Republic of Arrrr'Kansas.
The Senate of Arkansas found it necessary to legislate the possessive apostrophe in 2007. They also passed a law that states that the Arkansas River can rise no higher than the Main Street bridge in Little Rock.
Bill Clinton was born in Hope, Arkansas. He went on to become Governor of Arkansas, and later President of the U.S., after having not had sexual relations with many of the state's women. Depending on what the meaning of "is" is, that is.
In 1971, Frederick W. Smith founded a logistics services company in Little Rock, Arkansas, but had to move to Memphis, Tennessee two years later due to a lack of support from officials at Little Rock National Airport and their refusal to provide facilities for him. That company is now known as FedEx Corporation. D'oh!
Little Rock, Arkansas is the number one consumer of Velveeta cheese in the world (per capita).
