You know, I've lived in Illinois my entire life and only a handful of times have I said I wanted to get out.  That's not the case for other Illinois residents, though.

At least three times a day I'll be scrolling on Facebook and see someone post they really want to get out of this sad state for so many different reasons.

With over 8,000 likes, 1,000 comments, and 1,500 shares later, they had to make sure to clarify, "we're expanding further into Illinois and this is just a joke, folks."

I looked it up and sure enough they're expanding!
