In the meantime, my advice column/random question answering is going to become a regular feature around here. Send me questions, queries, topics you need advice on or whatever. And every (still undecided)day I will answer them (I'm thinking Monday). Comprende?
Back to Texas...
Texans LOVE their state. LOVE. If you are in a foreign country and you ask a Texan where they are from, they will say Texas, not America (or the United States or whatever you call this country). They get all defensive if you try to imply that maybe some other states are pretty cool too. They will tell you "Texas was it's own country" and all sorts of other random things to try and convince you.
A few weeks ago (maybe a month?) I got a Facebook e-mail from someone telling me about this really cool "fan page" and that I should join.
I bet Texas can get 1 million fans before any other state.
Apparently other states are participating in this too, but none seem to be as into it as Texans.
As of this posting, they are up to 676,614 fans.
The funniest part is that when you go to the fan page, they shit talk to increase membership.
Sage nuggets like this one:
I'm going to be honest, i can hardly say the U.S. Pledge. But i know the Texas Pledge by heart, and how many states can say they know their state pledge. Not many..Or this one:
So this girl, she's form New York. Her names Lindsay. She thinks New York is better than Texas. She also thinks we both have big egos but Texas doesn't have the balls to admit it. And as hard as I try, i can't find any reason anyone would want to ride in a strangers car, eat old hotdogs being sold on the... street, and mostly everyone has never heard of the word "manners".*Only in Texas would this be so competitive.
*Please tell me you noticed the typos. For the record, while I love to talk trash, I have a pretty strict shit talking policy that includes me trying my best to use proper spelling/grammar when making fun of other people and/or declaring my superiority.
