It's a moai statue head from Easter Island...

I did think of that, but bwall is right. The shape reminded me of the moai more than the Old Man of the Mountain (may he rest in peace).

I know the shape is wrong, but I still automatically typed in "Washington" when I saw the Amazon box.

I’ve been on JP too long, I’m a non-American (or Brit) and only missed the one disguised as a pig. For that state I think corn, or Slipknot and not much else!

I totally blanked on the Hershey bar! Even though it's related to the state and thus a clue. West coast bias, I reckon. Thanks for this fun quiz.

Typed 'Colorodo', was correct for Wyoming.

They are shaped differently, incidentally.

Yes. My original version only accepted Wyoming, but Quizmaster added Colorado as an acceptable answer. Makes sense, because the difference is subtle.

How do you do quiz image with pictures that aren't on Wikipedia Commons?
+2
Level 80
Dec 29, 2020
Interesting... I originally uploaded all of these images on Wikimedia Commons, but they've since been deleted. This was the reason given: "Unused, out of scope cartoons. While they're well-drawn, they have no educational or historic value and don't belong on Commons." I have the original drawings, and they still show up here, so I don't mind. :)

I would imagine these have a market somewhere. If you had cartoons representing Great Britain or the Czech Republic for my partner, I’d buy a couple of prints for the novelty value!

My eyes have failed me! Looking at this quiz again I noticed the corrected versions of things!

1. I though Massachusetts was a lobster not a toucan!

2. I though Minnesota was a rabid peacock with a lopsided mustache not whatever that is (I STILL can’t figure it out)!

3. I though South Carolina was a robber looking over his shoulder at a sack of gold not a robber sneaking up to a diamond!

I'm from New Jersey and when I was learning about the state in fourth grade, I said it looked like a Dutch boy looking to the left. Everyone said they didn't see it. Thank you, dug, for proving I'm not crazy! Though my Dutch boy has aged a bit, as have I, sadly.

That is a beautiful idea, because when I did you wonderful quiz I lost about 5 seconds typing in Colorado because it looks very similar to Wyoming. By the way, does Amazon have anything to do with Wyoming? If so could somebody teach me why? Thank you. :)
