πŸ‘‹ Hi, Mike here! I couldn't resist asking readers about new names for Pennsylvania.

  • The inspiration? Former President Trump's eyebrow-raising claim that "they" will change the name of Pennsylvania if he loses in November.

Here are some of my favorite responses:

  • Elizabeth R: Penn's Woods or EaglesLand.
  • Jan H.: Scrapple'vania: The Scrappy State!
  • Michael G.: Pennsyltucky for Philadelphia in the southeast part of the state, Pittsburgh in the southwest and Kentucky in the middle.
  • Ian S.: Seven β€” a nod to George Costanza.
