Ballot measures: a skit

(Originally posted on Facebook as an impromptu status update, which is why it's so short.)

So yesterday the states were sitting around comparing ballot measures, like kids comparing presents the day after Xmas:

Washington: What'd you guys get?

Maryland: I got marriage equality!

WA: Awesome, me, too! We also legalized marijuana!

MD: Whoa. Um...we now have table games at casinos.

WA: Oh. Well...that's...pretty cool, too. *hides snicker*

MD: Yeah, I guess. Hey, wanna trade? Pot for poker?

WA: Haha, no way! Ask Colorado.

CO: We already have table games. But man, we would kill for your Dream Act, Maryland.

MD: *contemplates* Nah, we wanna keep that. *sifts through gifts* I got some sweet orphan-court measures! Want those?

CO, WA: *blank looks*

MD: Redistricting?

CO, WA: *blank looks*

MD: Firing elected officials convicted of felonies?? Come on, guys!

WA: That's okay. Come on, Colorado. *opens box of Pop-Tarts*
