Grego shares his thoughts on Big Tex.
“Okay, I’ll make it quick but I got to get something off my chest. Hooray for the state fair of Texas and fried butter y’all, but boo on the new mug Big Tex is sporting! Have ya really looked at it? Here’s the old Tex, it had that old timey, friendly old western, warm cowboy smile, right?! Carnival’esque, howdy doody’ish though less clowny, yet welcoming! Now. here’s the new “bad” Tex… ooh..creepy!! What crawled up your welded steel skeleton and died?! He doesn’t look happy to be at the fair. Look closely because he looks like Woody from Toy Story’s evil twin! He looks like he saw something no cowboy should ever have to see and was left with a permanent “thousand yard stare”!! Have you seen the trailer for the movie ‘Annabelle?’ It’s the female version of ‘This Big Tex!!’ Nightmare city! He looks like he just found out Ebola is in Dallas!!! What too soon??! Yes, I’m glad Big Tex recovered from his head on fire, but I demand facial reconstruction before next year! You don`t have to go ‘Real Housewives’ but I want to feel like I’m being welcomed to a fair, not the gates of hell!!”
