Name That District contest: Maryland’s 3rd

at 02:46 PM ET, 10/10/2011

The Marylander Gerrymander? The Maryland Blue Crab?

Those were the best names The Fix’s Twitter followers came up with when we tweeted the district below last week.

But we think The Fix’s readers can do better.

So, for the next installment in our occasional “Name That District” contest, we’re asking you to come up with the best name for the new 3rd district that Maryland Democrats are proposing.

Here’s the tortured district (which according to a local reporter took NINE hours to traverse by car — in the NINTH-smallest state in the country)


(Maryland Department of Planning)

So what does it look like to you?

The person who can come up with the best name wins a Fix t-shirt. So head to the comments section below and give us your best.

(And for more examples of how this contest works, see the ones we’ve done before.)
