I’m trying to get the Minnesota state flower changed from the Lady Slipper, to the construction cone.

The lady slipper is rarely seen, but how often do you see a construction cone?

When you pick a Lady Slipper and bring it home, it’s already dead. When you wake up and there is a construction cone in your living room, you get a mix of emotions.

-confusion

-joy

-paranoia

and maybe even I little bit of self pride.

 

You might not remember how it got there, but it’s yours now, and it won’t die.

 

The construction cone guides our travels, and keeps us from going into harms way, it’s durable, recyclable, and can often be seen at night.

You need a flashlight to see a lady slipper at night (not very economical).

 

The construction cone doesn’t need to eat, or have water, and reminds to leave a little early for our trips. It can bring large groups together who would normally just drive right passed each other without even a single wave. NOT VERY MINNESOTA LIKE.

The Lady Slipper also sounds pretty sexist, why can’t it be the manly slipper? Why’s it gotta be a slipper? Can’t they call it the lady flower?

It only Blooms once a year, the construction cone can be found year round, indoors, and outdoors. It doesn’t steal our much needed sunshine, or soak up our rain water.

 

please, sign this petition, share it. And let’s bring Minnesota back on the map as an ok state.
