Sorry for interrupting the Halloween Ghost Posts, but this warrants a lookey-poo.
Did y’all see my post called, “Pea Pickin’ Town?” If not, click here.
I don’t know if y’all heard, but Big Tex, the animated giant that resides at the State Fair of Texas and greets visitors once an hour, died. Well, he burned up because of an electrical problem. People are upset because this is a, “Texas icon.” Okay, I get that. He sparked (no pun intended) memories for many people. No problem.
Here he is, post burn:
Here is where it starts to get ridiculous. They escorted his “body” out under a tarp.
Now, they are giving him a, “proper funeral.” Not kidding.
And please read the second to last line of that article. An Ohio resident was quoted as saying, “Maybe update his clothes a little bit?” Pope said. “He don’t need no earring in his ear, neither. He just needs to look like Big Tex.” Great grammar, there, Ms. Ohio. She must originally be a redneck.
Gah!!! SPOILER ALERT: HE’S NOT REAL, FOLKS! Get over it. His ass was flat and he looked like Howdy Doody dressed in cowboy gear. Quit wasting money and just rebuild him. End of rant.
