Texas is LOT bigger than YOU are. Believe me, we get the message as soon as we cross the Sabine River on I-10 just outside Orange. We see the mileage sign reminding us El Paso is 854 miles away. Got it. We’re just going to Houston.
Football is bigger and better in Texas than you are. It really doesn’t matter how many of your high schools have 5-star players, they're going to commit to LSU.
Our cities add “Texas” to the end of their city. If we're from “Big D” we will tell you we’re “from Dallas, TEXAS.” Same for H-town, Austin and San Antonio. We already passed that part of our geography lesson.
Our crawfish boils are just as good as yours, cause we have home-grown crawfish here too!Yeah, that’s kinda like saying a 10 ounce filet steak ordered at a sushi bar is just as good as the one you get Ruth’s Chris. Please stop right there. People in Breaux Bridge are laughing at you,
At least half of us have “Native Texan” bumper stickers on our "Texas Edition" Silverado trucks. Is that really necessary? We'll have our Ford 150's thankyouverymuch.
We can tailgate just as good as you. When reach over 175,000 people before ANY college football game, then you can get back to us. Until then...Thank you-NEXT.
Chuck Norris is the best Texas actor EVER! We know you love show "Walker-Texas Ranger." But here's a newsflash-Chuck Norris was born in OKLAHOMA; then lived in Kansas and California. Not Texas.
When we travel overseas, we tell everyone we’re from Texas FIRST, before we say the USA. Oh, yeah that lone star flag thing. Yep that is a bigger star than the rest of the stars on the American Flag.
If it ain’t sweet tea, it’s not good to drink. FINALLY, something we can agree on!
Only TEXAS Chili is REAL Chili. So don't even THINK about saying you make the most awesome chili. Many of our chili chefs from the Bayou have recently won national chili championships (with many of those wins over Texas cooks).
We have specific criterion about what qualifies as “barbeque.” What y’all do is just throw stuff on the grill an hour or so before it’s eaten. We go before dawn. That’s also the way WE roll with gumbo. Oh, and while I'm thinking about it, stop purchasing Campbells’ “Gumbo” cans. It's really soup, people!
We are NOT from the South. You are. We are Texas. Yeah, we've heard that you're like "a whole other country." We know you have no intention of joining our bayou family, and we're OK with it.
Our slogan on the welcome signs say, “Drive Friendly, the Texas Way.” Really? What about that dude who fills up our rear view mirrors with his Texas front license plate, wanting us to either get out of the way, or go at least 20 miles an hour over the speed limit. AND if you have a big truck, you are within your legal rights to cut us off on the interstate. (Friendly, my bass boat.)
ALL of OUR women wear boots. Well, so do ours. Except women from the bayou have other options - like fancy flats, pumps, and tennis shoes. And those really cool purple and gold rain boots to boot!
We will KEEP making our point in an argument, no matter how long it takes. That is, until we wear you down and have you either agree OR admit you were wrong.Or BOTH. In South Louisiana, we may argue over stuff for about 10 minutes. After that, it's time to be friends again and go out for a beer.
