The public relations news item on the Gov's website trumpets the state's selection by Chief Executive magazine as tops for "job growth and business development." The secret of our "success"?

(Do pot smokers with ying-yang tattoos really equate to an appetite for taxes?) Given our confusion, we thought to ourselves, "What better time for a creative caption contest?!" Were the above a single-panel comic, what should it read? "Sodomy has made you strong, old man," comes to mind, but that's too easy. Here's the image with the full website in view:
