Every State (and DC!), Described in Emojis

Emojis are useful when you're too lazy to type to your girlfriend, "I love you" or "I've got some eggplant for you." And because there are emojis for practically everything on the planet (except tacos... we're still waiting on that), we thought it'd be a fun exercise to come up with the combination of symbols that perfectly represents each of the 50 states (and DC). The emojis we've chosen sometimes sum up a state's history or its iconic food or its people -- all in just a few symbols. And if you don't like the emojis we've assigned your state, come up with some better ones and put 'em in the comments!
