I read a joke about U.S. state mottos, thought I got most of them except:

Alaska - 11,623 Eskimos Can't Be Wrong!

Indiana - 2 Billion Years Tidal Wave Free

Vermont - Ay, Yep

Could you please explain what’s funny about them? Thanks.

(Some other examples from the joke:

Maryland - If You Can Dream It, We Can Tax It

Illinois - Please, Don't Pronounce the "S"

California - By 30, Our Women Have More Plastic Than Your Honda.)

Alaska - 11,623 Eskimos Can't Be Wrong! -- A jocular suggestion that a few Eskimos are the only inhabitants

Indiana - 2 Billion Years Tidal Wave Free-- Indiana is about as far from the ocean as you can get in the USA

Vermont - Ay, Yep -- That's the way they talk there: they are well-known for being terse and having a Yankee twang.

Thanks Mister Micawber, but in 'Alaska - 11,623 Eskimos Can't Be Wrong!', who/what can't be wrong about what?
They live there, so it must be a nice place (they cannot be wrong about their choice of a place to live).

[url=http://www.google.com/search?as_q=&num=10&hl=en&btnG=Google+Search&as_epq=can%27t+be+wrong&as_oq=... ]*** can't be wrong[/url] is a common slogan, often appearing in advertisements.
I see. Thank you Mister Micawber!
