SANTA FE, New Mexico - State Senator Rosie Wexwillow [R-Albuquerque] has spearheaded a movement that will make the biggest change in New Mexico history.
The very attractive and recently divorced senator from Albuquerque informed the news media that she and several of her fellow senators decided that it was time to change the name of the state.
She explained that the group wanted to drop the word New from the name New Mexico.
The 32-year-old divorcée noted that first of all the newness had worn out a long, long time ago.
Secondly, she explained that she wanted to differentiate her state from other states that also use the New prefix, such as New York, New Jersey, and New Hampshire.
Ms. Wexwillow and her fellow senators suggested that the name of their beloved state be changed from New Mexico to the more appropriate Great Mexico.
She pointed out that the word Great has a lot more positive connontations than the word New does.
SIDENOTE: After a highly heated debate in which one senator actually threatened to pepper spray another, the measure was voted on and passed by a vote of 23-19
