The State Tortilla's Debute

Cousin tossed me over a Minnesota quarter the other day. It was the first time I'd seen the new state quarter in the wild.

While at lunch at Chipotle the other day, the FYO had a different homage to her birthplace.

We were both famished. I was in a carb-haze when the FYO held up a chewed out little corner of her quesadilla and said:

Look! Its Minnesota!

It took me a minute to recognize it but it was there. Her little chew marks followed a virtual St. Croix while the existing corners shaped out Iowa and South Dakota. It wasn't detailed enough to show a dent for International Falls. But I didn't grow up studying the state's shape much so I only just realized that now, with Wikipedia at my fingertips.
