That's more goddamn terrifying than Mr. Blobby & H.R. Pufnstuf combined!
Dafuq were they thinking (& what illegal drugs were driving their thoughts)?

A girli briefly dated is damn near the ambassador at this point. She literally has tattoos of big tex, the corny dog brand, and the ferris wheel. She actually got contacted by officials for season passes and backstage stuff because of them

I've never been that excited by anything like she is the fair, much less get multiple tattoos, much much less a state fair themed sleeve. Whatever. Different stroke and all that.

When I was a kid, I loved the live version of Long Tall Texan by the Beach Boys.

Think I'll go listen to it, see if it annoys me now, and determine if I was a stupid farking kid.

Headline reminds me of watching a vid, narrated by Dan Rather, about Van Cliburn.  He called him a "tall Texan" but Cliburn was from Louisiana.

My god, he was beyond next level greatness.

State and county fairs are better than drugs. They're even better on drugs.

I've seen Big Tex naked.

No, seriously.
