I live in WV and this is the stupidest state saying I've ever heard. We want our Wild and Wonderful back or at least something that doesn't make us sound like prostitutes.

LMAO! Thats great! I totally agree with you on this. Whenever I leave Parkersburg and then come back and see that slogan "Open for Business" I can't help but laugh and then I make a smart ass comment about how it makes it sound like a new whore house has just opened and then I spread my legs....lmao.... God that kinda sounds babd but you just have to have a good sense of humor and know me to understand the full effect. Point is this is the dumbest slogan a state could have. I had heard rumors that they were supposed to change it back because noone was happy about it, but I can clearly see that its not been changed. Maybe the Gov. thought of like this : If we lose anymore of our jobs that slogan will become our future because I'm sure, no actually I know theres already prostitutes in our town and I'm sure the number will continue to grow. God how pathetic!

Please, please, please get rid of the horrible "Open for Business" slogan. What was Governor Manchin thinking or was he thinking at all. The " OFB" slogan is a total embarrassment to us all.

As an outsider...when coming through West Virginia all I can think of is...Open the purse! Not very welcoming at all.
