Massachusettes has both a state muffin, the corn muffin, and a state cookie, chocolate chip.
Oklahoma's state anthem is actually "Oklahoma" by Rogers and Hammerstein... Dave had thought it was a joke.
This is entirely his fault, by the way...

the cookie of the commonwealth
Huh. "Kansas state cookie" searches yield Kansas-shaped cookie cutters, which is kind of amusing (just make rectangular cookies and crumble the northeast corner a bit). I'm particularly disappointed that the states aren't to scale (I wanted to buy them all and assemble a cookie US!) And that the Hawaii one is a one-piece cutter (which doesn't much resemble the Big Island even, so I'm not sure what's up with that), and man, I bet it's tough to get an unbroken Maryland cookie.
Um, anyway. We do have a state soil, which I didn't know until a minute ago. (Oklahoma? I can totally see having a state soil. It's very distinctive, though I didn't know it had a name other than "Red Oklahoma Dirt" before. And their song works, too, because I have to admit I am compelled to sing it (well, the two lines of it I know) whenever I drive into Oklahoma. I have not, however, ever found myself singing Home on the Range when returning to Kansas.)
State soil. Next time I send out a gift basket full of Kansas stuff, I am *so* including some dirt.

Well sealed, one hopes. . . .
I do hear the wind whistling through the plains.
That's awesooooooooome!!! :D
