WASHINGTON, D.C. - There's a saying here in the Lone Star State: "Don't mess with Texas." We don't take too kindly to people trashing up our state, and that most certainly includes trash talk from (of all places) Florida!

Florida Democratic congressman Alcee Hastings stirred a hornets nest during a committee hearing about Obamacare Monday, telling Texas Republican Michael Burgess, "I don't know about your state, which is a crazy state to begin with."

Burgess didn't appreciate the comment, but things only got weirder after that. Hastings told Burgess he could leave if he didn't like the comment, adding, "I wouldn't live there for all the tea in China."

Burgess demanded an apology from Hastings, to which Hastings replied, "You will wait until hell freezes over." When Burgess' fellow Texas Republicans got wind of the poop talk, 24 of them joined forces to issue a simple statement: "Don't mess with Texas."

Hastings, however, refused to back down, throwing even more fuel on the fire.

"Evidently, I touched a nerve deep in the heart of Texas, and I would ask them to tie a yellow rose around it and do like 'Frozen' and 'let it go.'"

But we're not going to 'let it go,' especially after this line of reasoning:

'One of their cities has a law that says that women can only have six dildos, or the certain size of things, and if that ain't crazy, I don't know what is!"

Take a good look in the mirror, buddy.
