    these are all parasites that can grow in the human intestines and cause disease.

    Just right to think about after breakfast.

    I can guarantee that the entire thing is not. I’m from Utah, and while we have a state gun, a state insect, and a state tartan (among others), we do not have a state worm.

    All of these are parasitical, they can be found in dogs, cats, and (less common) humans

    It’s just making fun of the tendency of some states to go overboard in having “state this” or “state that.” Originally, all that states used to have was a state bird (for example, the state bird of the state I grew up in, Delaware, is the Blue Hen), but now some states will also have a state animal, a state dog, a state cat, a state mineral, a state fossil, it goes on and on…
