[Jon Wayne; Texas Funeral (September 27, 1994)]
The word on the street is that the alt-country album
(mysteriously or perhaps not, this album is available at Wal-Mart) was created
by a touring punk band that rued their time spent in the lone star state.
Revenge came in the form of a slew of Texas-themed Texas-named Texas songs
(Texas Wine, Texas Polka, Texas Jail Cell,
etc) and a stereotyped racist drunk redneck for a lead singer. Spoken between
gritted teeth as if pronouncing the end of an argument.
Related: On the adult childrens show Wonder Showzen a rubbery puppet representing the red states of the United States (Middle America) sounding suspiciously like the current acting US president spoke convincingly of his legacy:
I understand you got a lot to say to the boys and girls.
Uhhh yep, I also wanna make some words at em too.
Well, go ahead.
Well, guyp ... gelp ... hooey, and uh ... TEXAS.
Related: An old Carol Burnett sketch parodying Dallas had a voice-over announcer who would intone the name of the show in the middle of conversations, confusing and annoying the characters: TEXAS.
– Jeff Stendec (1999)
