A yucca minute

From the Arizona Republic [Phoenix daily], back in the 90s:

Arizona is banking on a new slogan to lure millions of visitors and their dollars to the state. It's 'Arizona - One Grand Adventure After Another.' The slogan, picked from more than 20,000 entries, in a contest sponsored by the Arizona Office of Tourism, was announced Wednesday.

Here are some of the losers:

Arizona - Bring your camera and your Grandma
Arizona - Come on vacation, Leave on probation
Arizona - A Yucca Minute
Arizona - You Never Have to Shovel Sunshine
Arizona - Where you can Have a Dirt Lawn and it's OK
Arizona - Come see it, Pilgrim
Arizona has the hots for you
Arizona - The Happy Jumping Cholla State
Get your AZ over here
Hug a zonie
Arizona - The Zippy Zone
Arizona - It will Thaw Your Chilis
Arizona - Sunny with Scattered Flowers
Arizona - Better than the State You're In
Arizona - It's not Kansas and it never was

The winner won a free houseboat vacation on Lake Powell, most of which is in Utah.
