This is the true story of what happens when you live in a cactus state.

1. Very unfortunate cacti-related accidents.

HALPPPPPPPP.

2. These people who need no cooler when they have a river full of dirty water.

They are RESOURCEFUL, I guess you could say.

The heat knows no bounds in this state.

4. This sign that just wants to maintain order in the world.

5. Crayons that melt into the ground if you leave them out too long.

6. A Kokopelli doll hanging out with the Starbucks sign.

7. This phenomenon, which is apparently so common that they had to make a sign for it.

8. The most annoying visitor NO ONE invited to the garage: rattlesnakes.

Nope. Nope. Noooope.

9. People who keep trying to make this cacti mascot happen.

10. Camels taking a leisurely stroll through the neighborhood.

11. Cactus mailbox… because ARIZONA.

12. This dude who just can’t be separated from his cactus.

So, what? Some people have stuffed animals. This dude has a cactus.

13. This candy that has CACTUS in it… Well, not real cactus.

15. Scorpions in your candy.

16. Aaand THIS terribly tragic, but necessary place in the local store aisle.

WHAT’S ACTUALLY IN THERE?

24. Socially conscious vanity plates.

28. Bags of ice being sold everywhere.
