Re: Texas- Is it part of the Union or Not?

Texas through the years never could make up its mind whether its citizens were gonna be US citizens, or Texas citizens. So here's a t-shirt that should sum it up- They're just better than everyone else... they think...

Don't forget woot is based in Texas. Mess with a bull and you get... your shirt a day later than promised. Your shirt is silly.

I'm a Christmas Unicorn! In a uniform made of gold, with a billy-goat beard, and a sorcerer's shield, and mistletoe on my nose!

Yeah... but only my text is apparently biased against Texas. And I have a bunch of friends who are heavily biased towards Texas. I think it's a pretty nice 3-D representation of the issue. Sigh... if only I could have grunged up the USA a bit, but I couldn't get it to look purdy.

Since Texas was the independent country, the Republic of Texas, for a decade before joining the Union, that probably explains it.

However, since the design lifts Texas above the rest of the country, you may get all of the Texas votes despite the ridiculous description.

Edit: Wait... You're yigzat *and* SkekTek? L O L! Who did you tick off as SkekTek (2544 posts) that you created yigzat (1 post)? You've obviously remembered your passwords for both accounts, so that isn't the reason. Hiding from the Texans, perhaps?

Oh, that's too funny!

No, there's no trickery. I just didn't check who I was logged into when I posted this entry. It's my wife's account, and she was checking PMs. I finish a design and post it, and whoops. It's on yigzat. Oh well.

And yes, I should have tempered the description. As someone who's alma mater plays Texas a lot, I was putting a dig in there. Hook 'em horns!

Glad you like it. I think it's classy as a "T"-shirt.

Us Texans don't care where what the rest of the country thinks. We are part of Texas, and that's alllllllllll that matters.
