Come on people, have you no sense of humor? It's a joke. I moved here from Texas 15+ years ago and I received countless things like this from my family back in Texas. Plus countless times when they send a real estate listing showing the mansion I could buy to replace the little house we spent a fortune on here. Point is I love Texas but I'm not going back.

You Know You're In Texas if...


You make over $15,000 a year and can afford a brand new house.
The fastest part of your commute is going up your driveway to the bathroom after eating out.
You know how to eat roadkill.
The high school quarterback calls a time-out and the state stops.
Your child's third grade teacher wears spurs, rides a horse to school, and is named GW.
You've been to a baby shower for an infant that chews tobacco.
You have a very strong opinion about pretty much everything and can taste the difference between family and friends.
You know which restaurant serves the freshest poke weed.
A really big truck can move you to tears.
The guy in line at "po folk", wearing the baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like Hank Hill, IS Hank Hill.
You live an hour away from everything but can't see anything because of the hangover.
Your car insurance costs doesnt cost nothin cause you aint got none.
Your hairdresser chews gum, your plumber is your high school buddy, and your Mary Kay rep is every housewife on the block.
It's sprinkling out, and there's a report on every news about your kid peeing off the roof of your house!"
Over 85% of the cities, towns, and streets start with the name of some religious sect..
A family of four owns six lifted trucks.
Everyone who lives here thinks about how hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and snowstorms are way worse than earthquakes, which are, after all, over almost as soon as you realize what's happening.
Even if the store is across the street, you have to drive there cause its too dang hot.
And finally, a question: Q. How many Texans does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. None, they light matches.

Don't mess with Texas.

Now that's funny!

As a former Texan I am totally offended. Everyone knows infants can chew tobacco. They ain't got no teeth (or is that gran-pappy?)

Yes, it is true. The Los Angeles basin has a natural haze.

You know youre a texan when...

*You can properly pronounce Corsicana, Palestine, Decatur, Wichita Falls, San Antonio, Mexia, Waco, and Amarillo.
*A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel.
*You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
*You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.
*You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.
*You measure distance in minutes.
*Little Smokies are something you serve only for special occasions.
*You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit.
*You know cowpies are not made of beef.
*Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.
*You have known someone who has had one belt buckle bigger than your fist.
*You aren't surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, and bait all in the same store.
*A Mercedes Benz is not a status symbol. A Chevy 3500 4x4 is.
*You know everything goes better with Ranch.
*You actually get these jokes and are "fixin' " to send them to your friends.
*You go to the river/lake because you think it is like going to the
ocean.
*You think "y'all" is perfectly good usage if you're referring to more than one person.
*Finally, you are 100% Texan if you have ever heard this conversation:
"You wanna coke?"
"Yeah."
"What kind?"
"Dr. Pepper."
