RIP, Big Tex.

October 19, 2012

For those of you who haven’t  been to the State Fair of Texas, this is Big Tex.  He is a 50 foot tall cowboy who has welcomed kids to the Fair since 1952, or 60 years!  He waves and says “Howdy Partner!” and let’s be very clear about this:  it’s totally creepy.  But this morning, things went a little haywire down at Fair Park.  Let’s take a look:

THE HELL??  Yo, Big T, I think you are greeting those folks WAY TOO HARD.  Probably some quick thinking carny took care of you, though.

Uhh ok, not so much.  What exactly did you do to piss off the carnies, Big Tex?  Surely somebody with the Dallas Fire Department is on the case.

Huh.  That was fast.  But you can be repaired, right?

Guess not.  Well, the good news is, here in Texas we may not be able to prevent a fire.  Or put out a fire.  Or repair a statue.  But we do know what’s important: if you need to hide a body, you better be quick about it.

    This is so sad – Dallas is short on icons and now one less. I hope they rebuild him exactly as he was before – though I could live with fire-retandant clothing.
