    The following list of rules apply to each person as they enter Texas:

    1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot.

    2. Let's get this straight, it's called a 'gravel road.'
    I drive a pickup truck because I need to. No matter
    how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on
    your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.

    3. They are pigs, cattle, and oil wells. That's what
    they smell like to you. They smell like money to us.
    Get over it. Don't like it? I-20 and I-10 go east and
    west, I-35 goes north and south. Pick one.

    4. So you have a sixty-thousand dollar car. We're
    real impressed. We have quarter-million dollar
    cotton strippers that we drive three weeks a year.

    5. So every person in every pickup waves. It's
    called being friendly. Try to understand the concept.

    6. We all started hunting and fishing when we were
    nine years old. Yeah,we saw "Bambi," too. We got over it.

    7. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of doves
    are coming in, we will shoot it out of your hand.
    You better hope you don't have it up to your ear at
    the time.

    8. Yeah, we eat catfish, and crawdads. You really
    want sushi and caviar? It's available at the corner
    bait shop.

    9. The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season.
    It's a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to
    the first of November.

    10. Any references to "corn fed" when talking about
    our women will get you jack-slapped, by our women.

    11. We open doors for women. That applies to everyone
    regardless of age.

    12. No, there's no "Vegetarian Special" on the menu.
    Order steak. Order it rare. Or, you can order the
    Chef's Salad and pick off the two pounds of ham
    and turkey.

    13. When we fill out a table there are three main
    dishes: meats, vegetables, and breads. We use
    three spices~salt, pepper, and Tabasco sauce.

    14. You bring "Coke" into my house it better be
    brown, wet, served over ice and plenty of it! You
    bring "Hooch" into my house it better have 4 legs, a
    tail, and have a nose for quail, dove, duck, teal, or
    pheasant. You bring "Mary Jane" to my house she
    better be cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck,
    and have long hair.

    15. Yeah, we have sweet tea. It comes in a glass
    with two packets of sugar, some lemon, and a long

    16. High School Football is as important here as the
    Lakers and the Knicks, and a dang site more fun to watch.

    17. Yeah, we have golf courses. Don't hit in the
    water hazards-it spooks the fish.

    18. Colleges? Try Texas A&M. They come outta
    there with an education and a love for God and
    country, and they still wave at passing pickups
    when they come home for the holidays.

    19. We have more Navy, Army, Marines, and Air Force
    than any other state, so, " Don't Mess With Texas".

    20. Our military is only used as a back up. Per
    capita, each man, woman,and child owns at least
    two firearms and has taken an NRA Certified
    Shooter Education Course.

    21. Also, remember what Governor Sam Houston
    once said, "Texas can make it without the United States,
    but the United States can't make it without Texas"
  2. what the hell is a texas?

    Great stuff, ND!!! (some real truth in there, too).

    Another I always liked was -

    Translate this message - "AhmfrumchewstintaxesenAhmthawlbidniz."

    (Translation - "I from Houston, Texas and I'm in the oil business")

    Can you still get a single 16oz. beer at a drive-thru liquor store during rush hour in Arlington/Dallas ?

    Does a Rob Allen fit in a gun rack ?
  8. ..for the sadists.

  10. Some quick Texas grammar:

    Y'all - Singular
    All Y'all - Plural
    All Y'alls - Plural Possesive.

    Texas? I got one word for you: Alaska. We're twice as big, twice as leathery, and put out more oil than you can dream of. And we probably have just as many raving psychotics, if not a few more...

    Who's yer daddy?

  14. i like texas now.:cool:
    mmm...steak and guns....
  15. Its a ride at Disney World.
    Pretty cool, kind of old school but still nice to look at, I think the ride is called "Pirates of Texas"
    or "Texan Family Robinson"
    One of the two.
