In Texas, we do things different from the rest of the planet and we’re proud of that. We’re not the South, we’re Texas. Texans like their things Texan.
America knows this, accepts it and panders to it. It’s why there are “Texas Edition” trucks (ever seen a Delaware Edition?), Texas toast and Texas BBQ. Bad mouthing great things Texas, especially BBQ, could quite possibly get you shot.
