I watched Pee Wee Herman’s Big Adventure last night. There was a scene where Pee Wee Herman is in Texas, and he’s on the pay phone with someone, and he proves he’s in Texas by singing out loud, “The stars at night are big and bright” and everyone around responds by clapping and singing “Deep in the heart of Texas”.
The funny thing about this scene is that it’s a pretty accurate portrayal of Texans. The amount of state pride Texans have is just bizarre. Like that guy on Survivor. His luxury item was a huge Texas flag. How absurd. And here’s a direct quote: “Every morning when I wake up I’m thankful for two things. I’m thankful that I’m alive and I’m thankful that I’m a Texan.”
Anyway, try doing that in Texas some time. I bet you’ll get a response.
