Friends do it.
Politicians and Athletes do it.
Even little rabbits and large whales do it!
Let’s do it! Says Rep. Courtney Allen Curtis while introducing House Bill 1624 to the Missouri House of Representatives.
Surprisingly, the bill is making progress, having already undergone its second reading.
According to House Bill 1624:
“To amend chapter 10, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to the designation of the official state greeting. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows: Section A. Chapter 10, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 10.190, to read as follows: 10.190. The ‘high five’ is selected for and shall be known as the official state greeting in the state of Missouri.”
If this bill passes, effective Aug. 28, Missourians can look forward to an increased cool factor for their state, as well as a great marketing opportunity to draw more talent to the hidden jewel of the Midwest: Kansas City! With Streetcars and High Fives galore, the progressive magnetism exuding from this Royal City is sure to attract the best and brightest nation wide.
