Drivin in Texas

from: LameJokeToe

From Bob Ross (who beat me up one time when I was in the fourth grade in Borger Texas) A group of Texas. friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That night, one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck. "Where's Henry?" the others asked. "Henry had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail," the successful hunter replied. You left Henry laying out there and carried the deer back?" they inquired of him. "A tough call," nodded the hunter. "But I figured no one is going to steal Henry! *********************** Regarding the year 2000, a senior at Texas Tech was overheard saying, "If the end of the world comes, I hope to be in West Texas. Everything happens here 20 years later than the rest of the civilized world!" *********************** The young rancher came running into the store and said to his buddy, "Bubba, somebody just stole your pickup truck from the parking lot!" Bubba replied, "Did you see who it was? The young rancher answered, "I couldn't tell, but I got the license number." ************************ NEWS FLASH! - College Station, Texas ----- Texas worst air disaster occurred when a small two-seater Cessna 150 plane, piloted by two Texas A&M University students, crashed into a cemetery earlier today in College Station. Texas search and rescue workers have recovered 300 bodies so far and expect the number to climb as digging continues into the evening. The pilot and co-pilot survived and are helping in the recovery efforts. ************************* A Texas State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-20. The trooper asked, "You got any ID?" The driver replied, "Bout whut?" =============================================== From Chuck Barber ONLY A TEXAN WILL APPRECIATE THIS.... Subject: Driving in Dallas So Y'all are fixin' to come to Dallas. H'yars some advice to help y'all get by. First you must learn to pronounce the city name. It is DAL-LUS, or DAA-LIS depending on if you live inside or outside LBJ Freeway. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Dallas has its own version of traffic rules ..."Hold on and pray." There is no such thing as a dangerous high-speed chase in Dallas. We all drive like that. All directions start with, "Get on Beltline" ... which has no beginning and no end. (It REALLY DOESN'T!!!) The morning rush hour is from 6 to 10. The evening rush hour is from 3 to 7. Friday's rush hour starts Thursday morning. If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear-ended, cussed out and possibly shot. When you are the first one on the starting line, count to five when the light turns green before going, to avoid crashing with all the drivers running the red light in cross-traffic. Construction on Central Expressway is a way of life and a permanent form of entertainment. We had sooo much fun with that we have added George Bush Freeway and the High Five to the mix. All unexplained sights are explained by the phrase, "Oh, we're in Fort Worth!" If someone actually has their turn signal on, it is probably a factory defect. Car horns are actually "Road Rage" indicators, and remember, its legal to be armed in Texas. All old ladies with blue hair in Mercedes have the right of way. Period. And remember, it's legal to be armed in Texas. Inwood Road, Plano Road, NW Highway, East Grand, Garland Road, Marsh Lane, Josey Lane, 15th Street, Preston Road all mysteriously change names as you cross intersections (these are only a FEW examples). The perfect example is what is MOSTLY known as Plano Road. On the South end it is known as Lake Highlands Drive, cross Northwest Highway and it becomes Plano Road, go about 8 miles and it is briefly Greenville Ave, Ave K, and Highway 5. It ends in Sherman. If asking directions in Irving or SE Dallas, you must have knowledge of Spanish. If in central Richardson or on Harry Hines, Mandarin Chinese will be your best bet. If you stop to ask directions on Gaston or Live Oak, you better be armed (and remember, it's legal to be armed in Texas). A trip across town (east to west) will take a minimum of four hours, although many north/south freeways have unposted minimum speeds of 75. The minimum acceptable speed on the Dallas North Toll Road is 85. Anything less is considered downright sissy. The wrought iron on windows near Oak Cliff and Fair Park is not ornamental!! It is possible to be driving West in the North-bound lane of East Northwest Highway. Don't let this confuse you. The North Dallas Tollway is our daily version of NASCAR. It also ends in Sherman. LBJ is called "The Death Trap" for two reasons: "death" and "trap." If it's 100 degrees, Thanksgiving must be next weekend. If it's 10 degrees and sleeting/snowing, the Fort Worth Stock Show is going on. If it's rained 6 inches in the last hour, and it is springtime, the Byron Nelson Golf Classic is in the second round. If it is autumn, then the state fair is in full swing. If you go to the Fair, pay the $8.00 to park INSIDE Fair Park. Parking elsewhere could cost up to $2500 for damages, towing fees, parking tickets, etc. If some guy with a flag tries to get you to park in his yard, run over him. Any amusement parks, stadiums, arenas, race tracks, airports, etc., are conveniently located as far away from EVERYTHING as possible so as to allow for ample parking on grassy areas. Final Warning: Don't Mess With Texas Drivers. Remember, it's legal to be armed in Texas. ==================================================
