Haters of the Fair will say,
"I'm glad he's dead."
"He got what he and all the other Riff Raff deserve..."
They'll line the streets in celebration just like a jihadist nation celebrates a terrorist attack.
"Burn the sum bitch down!"
"Death to Big Tex Infidel!"
"The Fair's too expensive, anyway."
Lovers of the Fair will mark this day, they will morn, and they will remember.
They will remember the Texas Giant who greeted them each year for 60 years.
They'll post pictures of their children sitting under that big grin, eating a Fletcher's, drinking a lemonade, and remember the good times.
They're the ones who know that you can never destroy Big Tex, his memory remains.
Politicos will say it's an 'act of aggression' sanctioned by a Rick Perry led super majority.
They'll say that deregulation lead to the disaster, that if only we had more "women electricians" looking after Tex, this would have never been.
That this was clearly a "message" from the Tea Party for the liberal media to "back off" on Ted Cruz.
'This is how the cartel operates.'
"Big Gay Tex" had to go, he was stripping away our southern baptist value system, one blue jean leg tucked into boots and flaming gay shirt with scarf at a time.
Even the Mayor of Dallas was on hand to express his condolences and lend support.
A photo op of GIGANTIC proportions, Mike Rawling's vows to rebuild a faster, smarter, stronger, and more flame retardant "Big Tex".
Some reactions from around the state:
Isn't it ironic? Don't you think? Is The symbolic gesture of Texas Hospitality up in a flash of flame and a puff of smoke a most disturbing omen or a representation of a decade of embarrassing policies that destroyed public education, indebted it's future generations and belittled and bemoaned it's working class (illegal aliens).....?
Seeing Tex that way, charred me for life.
Way too friendly and accepting of different types of folks to be a Republican.
Tex was a pot smoking, treehugger for sure.
And of course,
OH THE HUMANITY!!!
Even Tex chimed in, and created his own grief support group:
HOWDY FOLKS! It's your ol' pardner, Big Tex, and I'm here to tell you that the smoke got me good but I'll be recovering and back bigger and better for my 61st birthday next year. Leave me a message 'cause it shore do help me heal faster!
As for today, in all it's solemness, I say the end is nigh.
Surely this is an omen.
I don't want to live in a Texas without Tex,
and neither do you.
