So, we were in San Juan this weekend and went over to La Fortaleza, the official residence of Republican pro-statehood governor Luis Fortuño. We asked for an interview, but Fortuño wasn’t home. (Bummer, we had brought coffee to chat.)
Instead, we did a video of the TOP 10 REASONS THAT PUERTO RICO WILL NEVER BECOME A STATE:
For those who don’t want to watch the video (and you should since my little sis Vanessa is in it), here is the latest Top 10 List:
10. You would need to change the kilometer signs to miles.
9. You would need to add actual numbers to over 8 million buildings and street signs. We estimate this to be about $3 billion in additional costs.
8. The drinking age would be raised to 21 from the current age of 12.
7. You could not take your “whiskey to go” on the drive back home.
6. The speed limit signs would need to change from miles to kilometers.
5. NO MISS UNIVERSE!!!!! Wha?
4. So long to the Puerto Rican Olympic Team. (Sidenote: One of my cousins is a sports doctor for some of the Puerto Rican national teams. He would be out of job. Another job loss under Fortuño.)
3. No Krispy Kreme stores. No more late-night runs to eat donuts.
2 . No casinos, unless we become an Indian Reservation.
1. No accents in signs. So Mayagüez would be Mayaguez, Rincón would be Rincon, and so forth.
TWO MORE BREAKING REASONS
- No LIVE BANDS playing at 11 am!
- No more pigeons. All the pigeons would gone. And kids wold be sad.
So, what would you add?
