The Musk-rat State

The Musk-rat State
«ондатровый штат», «штат болотных крыс». Пренебрежительное прозвище штата Делавэр и его жителей (Musk-rats). С одной стороны, здесь действительно раньше водились ондатры (болотные крысы), а с другой — крошечные размеры территории штата дали повод для разного рода шуток типа «только крысы могут там уместиться».
