It all started with a joke.
While talking with a friend (my dog) about how many people we noticed were leaving California lately, I said in jest “They should change the California state motto from ‘Eureka!’ to ‘Eur-going?'”
My friend blinked in agreement.
I took that positive reaction as a sign that I was on to something, and so, here is my labor of love and mental machination. A parody of the California state seal and motto. This version of the California seal contains images of boats heading east*, a fire in the mountains, a man digging his own grave, and a bear with sunglasses.
*I know the boats depicted are likely heading south, north, or west but not, in fact, east considering California’s coastal geography. Hope that clears things up.
