The Top 10 Sick Burns About Arizona

Arizona gets a lot of hate from people who don't live here, but let's face it — every state deserves a good roasting.

So on subjects like the roasting Valley of the Sun heat, the cities of Sedona and Flagstaff, and Arizona as a whole, we present the top 10 sick burns about our lovely state:

10. Arnold Schwarzenegger


"I was also going to give a graduation speech in Arizona this weekend. But with my accent, I was afraid they would try to deport me."
9. Jeff Foxworthy

"Phoenix in July. Apparently, the people that book these things don't get the Weather Channel."
8. Tracy Morgan as Tracy Jordan in "30 Rock"

"It's like a black barbie doll in Arizona - nobody's buying it!"
7. Poet Buddy Wakefield

"Listen, if you're from Arizona, I'm not making fun of your home. I'm making fun of you for gathering there and building a community in an oven. Smooth move."
6. Jon Stewart

"Arizona, I’m going to say something to you with all due respect: You are lucky you are warm, because if you had your attitude in Seattle’s weather you would be the world’s largest used condom and nuclear waste dump."
