Once upon a time Texas was a no man’s land, but today it’s no longer the land of cowboys and outlaws we’re used to imagine when thinking of Texas. It is one of the biggest states in the U.S, and as such, it’s very diverse; there’s a big difference between the large metropolitan cities of Texas and its rural areas. Yet, countless stereotypes are held about Texas, many of which are far from reality, but some of them are here to stay. We’ve gathered the most hilarious signs you can find only in Texas, that illustrate these stereotypes in a humorous way.
This is a warning you don’t see everyday, and another great example of a sign you can find only in Texas. Perhaps it’s because the prisoners in Texas are less fearful, or otherwise the security at the Texas prison is not as good (though that seems like an unlikely option), whatever the reason – this is one of those signs you can find only in Texas.
But joking aside, this is an extremely important warning – we all enjoyed watching the show Prison Break (and if you haven’t already, we warmly recommend it), but no one wants to find themselves an accomplice to a prison break after innocently picking up a hitchhiker!
Welcome to Texas
These people know how to lure a crowd – what more does one need in life? This sign embodies all the stereotypes about Texas and pretty much confirms them – Texans love beer, guns and hot sauce – pretty much anything that gives you a rush of excitement; though it hardly seems wise to mix the two together! Hopefully, that’s not what the sign is suggesting.
This sign welcomes you to Texas appropriately – forget about all the states trying to market themselves with false advertising, Texas calls it like it is, it isn’t ashamed of who she is, but the other way around.
