Texas

About Texans


THIS ORIGINATED FROM A NON-NATIVE TEXAN

Armadillos sleep in the middle of the road with all four feet in the air.

There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in Texas.

There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Texas, plus a few
no
one has ever seen before.

Raccoons will test your melon crop and let you know when they are ripe.

If it grows, it will stick you. If it crawls, it will bite you!

Nothing will kill a mesquite tree.

There are valid reasons some people put razor wire around their house.

A tractor is NOT an all terrain vehicle. They do get stuck.

The wind blows at 90 mph from Oct 2 till June 25; then it stops totally
until October 2.

Onced and twiced are words.

Coldbeer is one word.

People actually grow and eat okra.

Green grass DOES burn.

When you live in the country you don't have to buy a dog. City
people drop them off at your front gate in the middle of the night.

The sound of coyotes howling at night only sounds good for the first few
weeks.

When a buzzard sits on the fence and stares at you, it's time to see a
doctor.

Fix-in-to is one word.

There ain't no such thing as "lunch". There is only breakfast,
dinner and then there's supper.

"Sweetened ice tea" is appropriate for all meals, and you start drinking
it
when you are two.

"Backwards and forwards" means I know everything about you.

"Jeet?" is actually a phrase meaning, "Did you eat?"

You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it is.
You work until you're done, or it's too dark to see.

You measure distance in minutes or hours.

You can switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

Stores don't have bags. They have sacks.

You see a car with the engine running in the Wal-mart parking lot with no
one in it, no matter what time of the year.

All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit or a
vegetable.

You install security lights on your house and garage, and leave both
unlocked.

You carry jumper cables for your own car.

You know what "cow tipping" and "snipe hunting" are.

You only have four spices in your kitchen: Salt, Pepper, Ketchup, and
Tabasco.

You think everyone from north of Dallas has an accent.

Sexy underwear is a tee shirt and boxer shorts.

The local papers cover national and international news on one page, but
require six pages to cover Friday night high school football.

The first day of deer season is a state holiday.

You know which leaves make good toilet paper.

You find 100 degrees a "tad" warm.

All four seasons are: Almost summer, summer, still summer and Christmas.

You know whether another Texan is from East, West, North, or South Texas
as
soon as he opens his mouth.

Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past-time known as "goin Wal-Martin" or
"off to Wally-world."

You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good
chili-eatin' weather.

A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop....It's a Coke
regardless of brand or flavor.

Texans understand these jokes

Other observations

Both men and women can and do cook.....well!!
Gravy from a jar is a sign of mental retardation.

People in El Paso realize that they are closer to the Pacific ocean than they are to Louisianna. And don't like it!!

We in East Texas think Tennessee is a day trip but El Paso is too damn far!

We know what "Chicken Fried " is.
