Name that District contest winner: ‘Goofy kicking Donald Duck’
Pennsylvania’s new 7th congressional district will henceforth be known as...
“Goofy kicking Donald Duck.”
The winner of our latest “Name that District” contest is Fix reader tmbjon, who came up with the above nickname for the tortured-looking district created for freshman Rep. Pat Meehan (R-Pa.).
Many of the entries suggested that the right half of the district looked as though it were kicking the left half, and many more suggested the right half of the district looked like Disney’s Goofy.
In the end, tmbjon put it all together and realized that the left half looks quite a bit like Donald Duck, too.
For his ability to tie it all together and keep the nickname focused on the Disney theme, we say: congratulations.
