Maryland thinks you are scum

by

Maryland has hated the majority of the United States for years now.  That is not an opinion, but a fact backed up by its official state song.

In an attempt to get as much stimulus money from their current “despot” (their word, not mine), a group of lawmakers in Maryland are thinking of altering some of the lyrics to their state song.  To be fair, it’s only been 140 years since the Civil War, so you can understand why some of the people that served in the war may still hold a grudge.  Oh wait.

Proposed Alternate Lyrics: Maryland, My Maryland, You look like two people 69ing.

Proposed Alternate Lyrics: Maryland, My Maryland, You look like two people 69ing.

Here are the complete lyrics to the song.   It includes such gems as “The despot’s [Abraham Lincoln] heel is on thy shore, / Maryland, My Maryland! / His torch is at thy temple door,” and “Huzza! she [Maryland] spurns the Northern scum!”   Lincoln did suspend Habias Corpus during the Civil War, so calling him a despot is actually somewhat true.

But it’s about time that Maryland put aside its inherited grievances.  Hug it out, bitch.
