FLORIDA (or FLORIDIA): A place where may be found ALLIGATORS, LONG-NECKED 
TURTLES and SPACE SHUTTLES. An interesting place which is warm and wet and 
there are geese. BACON, LETTUCE AND TOMATO SANDWICHES may be found here 
also. A lot more interesting than many other places. The shape when seen 
from the air is like a bit stuck on a bigger bit.
