It's been a long time in coming, but insomniac's work has finally paid off.

I vote that the new state pasta be "Fusilli"

*gives coal for Christmas gifts this year*

West Virginia rocks!

How exciting.

Does that mean you can get arrested for burning it?

WV is the only state I have seen where the "School bus stop ahead" signs are iconic rather than text based.

Ed Conrad will be celebrating at the Charles Darwin homestead. (Google "man old as coal.")

I'll have some vodika on the rocks in honor of this important event.

Don't laugh too hard. Florida has some worthless substance called "Moonstone" as it's official state gem.

*sticks out tongue at Clown Puppy*

Humph!!!! Moonstone looks great when it's set in silver.

I’m surprised coal was not named the Robert Byrd West By God Virginia State Rock.

"Don't laugh too hard. Florida has some worthless substance called "Moonstone" as it's official state gem."

MOONSTONE! WOO+!!!

/I've got some Moonstones for ya, right here!!

If I'm not mistaken it's also the official state rock of Utah. Our state gem in NC is the Emerald and our state rock is granite. I'm not that smart. I looked these up.

Our state rock is frozen turkey.

The poor global wormenists will cry, then hold each oher, until the hiccups subside.

fitting coal is our state rock...most of it, like our best and brightest, gets sent to other states...

Is coal really a rock, though? Isn't more like solidified oil? I demand an inquiry on behalf of REAL rocks, like granite and, uh, marble!

Oh dear. My state rock is Roxbury Puddingstone. *slinks away to hide ... under a rock.*

My state rock is "Roxbury Puddingstone." And if this triple-posts, I apologize. The bot seems to be eating my words.

Can werewolves wear moonstones or will it keep them wolf-shaped all the time, being a moon-stone and all that?

My state rock is "Roxbury Puddingstone."

Roxbury Puddingstone WBAGNFA really pretentious English Beatles-wannabe band, or maybe a minor Harry Potter character.

Years ago, a bill was introduced to make Maple Walnut the Official New Hampshire State Ice Cream Flavor. I suggested that the State Representative who introduced it should be named the Official State Fruitcake, and that a former Governor should be the Official State Fossil. None of it passed, but there were thousands of dollars of hearing and printing costs, legislative time, etc.

The Ohio state rock is rock.
