Here's what Jeff Foxworthy had to say about folks from Texas:
If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Texas;

If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Texas;

If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of Dallas for the weekend, you may live in Texas;

If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Texas;If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Texas;

If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Texas;

If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Texas;

If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -- you're going 80 and everybody's passing you, you may live in Texas;

If you find 60 degrees 'a little chilly,' you may live in Texas;

If you actually understand these jokes, and share them with all your Texas friends, you definitely live in Texas.

Cowboy's Ten Commandments posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Fairlie, Texas:(1) Just one God.(2) Honor yer Ma & Pa. (3) No telling tales or gossipin'.(4) Git yourself to Sunday meeting.(5) Put nothin' before God.(6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal.(7) No killin'.(8) Watch yer mouth.(9) Don't take what ain't yers.(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff

Now that's kinda plain an' simple don'tcha think?

Just so you know, I DID NOT make this stuff up! My mom sent it to me in one of those email chains and I found it to be very entertaining and thought it to be blog-worthy!

Is this FOR REAL? NO WAY!!! Unbelievable. Seriously.

How big is Texas, anyway. Are there any normal cities. Oh wait, there's probably a Normal, Texas, too! :)
