If my name were Holland, I would not be throwing darts at things with foreign names.

Just sayin’.

Here’s the full and complete text of House Bill 150, whose sponsor is representative Holland

HOUSE BILL NO. 150

1     AN ACT TO PROVIDE THAT FOR ALL OFFICIAL PURPOSES WITHIN THE

2     STATE OF MISSISSIPPI, THE BODY OF WATER LOCATED DIRECTLY SOUTH OF

3     HANCOCK, HARRISON AND JACKSON COUNTIES SHALL BE KNOWN AS THE “GULF

4     OF AMERICA”; AND FOR RELATED PURPOSES

5          BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI:

6          SECTION 1.     For all official purposes within the State of

7     Mississippi, the body of water that is located directly south of Hancock,

8     Hancock, Harrison and Jackson Counties shall be known as the “Gulf

9     of America.”

10          SECTION 2:   This act shall take effect and be in force from

11     and after July 1, 2012.

But seriously:  What does Rep. Holland have against the Mississippi Sound?
