A Feather in Our Hat


And I'm proud to be from Connecticut, where at least I know there's .... nutmeg? (to the tune of "I'm Proud to be an American"). We also have tobacco, insurance, and high taxes.
Yes, the state song of CT is Yankee Doodle, and I was at work a while ago and a manager sent out a memo saying the above statement and it took all of my willpower not to react in the above way. Because what else do you call a feather in a cap? (If you are unaware, back in the Colonial days French fashion was called 'macaroni' and hence the lyrics of the famous ditty. It was supposed to be a derogatory song but instead we made it our state anthem.)
