Texas-shaped Burgers?

Recommended Posts

Although, for the record, our road signs may be painted with Texases on them, but they are shaped like Colorado!

Just added proof that Texans love Colorado...

When I retire I will fall squarely in the "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as soon as I could" category.

 

Can't wait for the next four years to be over.

I am very far from retirement age but as soon as things settle down for us here the missus and I are planning on moving to the lone star state. I'm hoping before that time that the downward spiral my home state is in doesn't collapse any further and cause a singularity. I'd hate to be swallowed up by the looming nothingness before I can bask in the warmth of the great state of Texas. BTW what does the job market there look like at present?

From what I've seen with friends and family - Texas is being hit hard, like most other places, but not as bad as some.

 

That doesn't really give you an idea does it? Hmmm. I should look up some statistics!

 

EDIT:

 

Okay just did!

 

National Unemployment rate for June 09 was 9.5%

Texas Unemployment rate for June 09 was 6.9%

 

And here's a great chart showing each state and comparing current unemployment rates

 

I love wielding the awesome power of Google!

Texas-shaped burgers are for poseurs. Real citizens of the Republic eat Texas-sized burgers, which are hand-made, one at a time, on a grill the size of Alaska, using Wyoming for a spatula and Kansas and Nebraska for buns.

And that, eventually, we'll get around to annexing it... :devil:

Not if California beats you to it.

Not to be rude, but last I heard, California was rummaging around in the sofa cushions for funding for their social services...

True. But Colorado has a huge population of California immigrants. And those "immigrants" have molded our political/governmental scene to be far more like California than Texas. I'd prefer Texas.

 

 

But I digress from the topic. One thing about growing up in Colorado was that I was always so disappointed that we didn't have all the cool state shaped novelties and things you could get in other states - Texas shaped burgers, etc. Until I realized that any appropriately sized rectangle could be called Colorado shaped... Now I like to lord it over other states.

Until you've lived here, you really can't understand.

I agree. When I came to TX for the first time from NC to check out a grad school, I was shocked at seeing the shape of the state of TX everywhere. And I do mean everywhere - road signs - overpasses - foods - candles - it was insane. Still is.

 

If you recall, Darling, I wanted a Texas shaped Groom's cake (though I settled for the flag).

 

We Texans have pride in our state which boarders on nationalism. You wouldn't understand, coming as you do from Virginia's Mexico (aka: North Carolina).

I should specify that I'm in the Army and retirement means finding a new career at 38 with some benefits from the government.

There are far worse forms of retirement. Looking forward to having you in the state, Sarge.
