My mom sent me a picture of Big Tex saying it was all that was left of him, but I didn't know WTF she was talking about. I haven't lived in Texas in almost 9 years and I knew nothing of this before leaving so I'm in the dark.

Alamo beer really exists now. It's on store shelves in Abilene.

Now, people are stuck on the Stratosphere ride, again.

That dude that is the voice of Big Tex has got to be distraught. Hasn't he been Big Tex's voice since Big Tex's inception?
