There is an old story about a woman who lived in a big boot, but it turns out it’s just real life in Texas. This big boot home looks like it has enough space to house at least the old woman, and she could probably fit a couple of kids in there, too.
We don’t like to think about just how much storage space is available or about the curvature of the ceiling. But we do like to think there’s a nice, big patio on the roof, so the little old lady can sit and watch the bypassers peacefully without caring about what others think of her house.
You'll Need More Than a Flyswatter
Everything is bigger in Texas, they say, but that isn't always a good thing. Sure, it might include steaks, freedom, fun, and beaches, but apparently, it also means blood-sucking insects. This seems like the kind of sign that is truly necessary if you've been in the area for more than an hour or two.
Apparently, this sign keeps getting stolen, and the person in charge has no idea why. It's quite a unique little warning, so we can imagine that many people might want to have it in their room, especially annoying teenagers. Regardless of where they live.
Somebody Is About to Have Quite the Fiesta
Piñatas are a classic party addition that comes to us from south of the border. You hang them from a tree, grab your favorite whackin' stick, and pound that thing until candy comes out. Or whatever you want to fill it with.
They're fun for kids and adults, and this truck looks like it's about to be handing out fun for one party after another. Maybe this person works at a party supply store, or he's a tester for piñatas. You know. Quality control. Or, maybe they are planning the fiesta to end all fiestas. We wouldn't mind an invite.
No, I Swear, It Was That Big
Fish sizes are a common game to play if you like to be on the water. You might have caught a big pike or a heavy trout, but you've never caught anything like this.
We wonder what this titanic sea creature is used for – the truck it's held on doesn't look like the kind of thing that gets many miles, so it might just be a restaurant's eye-catcher or something for a marina or wharf. At least the fish is having a good time – just look at that smile. Catch this fish, and you're bound to be the talk of Texas.
Interesting Choice of Words
Yes, it's true – even in the golden land that is the great state of Texas, the roads aren't perfectly straight. They still have little bumps in the surface of the asphalt that cars have to handle, and if you're going too fast, they can be dangerous. But, for some reason, they call them road “humps” instead of bumps.
Maybe it's just a local thing, or maybe it's this one weird guy at the Texas road department that wanted to be a little different. We guess that's okay, as we have learned that anything can happen in Texas, and everything is acceptable.
