Survivor – Texas Style

Pink Toyota

I know I have several long-time readers from Texas, and so when I saw this I thought they would enjoy it especially. But even if you're not from Texas, I think you'll chuckle as you read this if you know a little bit about Texans.

Due to the popularity of the "Survivor" shows, Texas is planning to do one entitled Survivor - Texas-Style!

The lucky contestants will all start in Dallas, drive to Waco, Austin, San Antonio, then over to Houston and down to Brownsville. They will then proceed up to Del Rio, El Paso, Odessa, Midland, Lubbock, and Amarillo. From there they will go on to Abilene and Fort Worth and finally back to Dallas in this vehicle:

Pink Prius

Ah yes, each contestant will be driving a pink Prius. And if that's not potentially lethal enough, each Prius will have a dozen bumper stickers which will read:

1. "I'm A Democrat"

2. "Amnesty For Illegals"

3. "I Love The Dixie Chicks"

4. "Boycott Beef"

5. "I Voted For Obama"

6. "Re-elect Obama In 2016"

7. "Vote Eric Holder Texas Governor"

8. "Rosie O'Donnell Is Texas Born"

9. "I Love Obama Care and Chuck Schumer"

10. "I Side With Jane Fonda"

11. "It's Bush's Fault"

12. "I'm Here To Confiscate Your Guns"

The first contestant to make it back to Dallas alive wins!


Since I have never watched more of Survivor than the time it takes to turn to a different channel, I'm trying to imagine what the show would be like. Any thoughts? 🙂

Because they moved in different circles.

    We were just in Texas with our black Prius. We paid under $250 for gas for the entire trip from Greenville and back home. Though the predominant vehicle in Texas is a general motors or Ford truck, we did see several Prius’s making “in-roads.” Texans are very practical people, though I don’t think the pink-colored Prius’s will catch on!

    Lynne, thanks for fresh news from the ground in Texas.

    Vikki, it’s funny – at just about the same moment you commented, a long-time reader formerly from Texas commented on Facebook, “I think it would be the first one with no winners. 🙂 “

    This concept has been tried before…on a 2007 episode of the British car show “Top Gear” (Series 9, Episode 3)

    The three “presenters” were challenged to buy a car in south Florida (Miami) for $1000 and drive it all the way to New Orleans. If that wasn’t hard enough, just prior to entering the state of Alabama, they were told to decorate each other’s cars — the object being to get their fellow presenter killed.

    One car was inscribed with “Hillary for President” and “NASCAR Sucks”, another with “Country Music is Rubbish” and the lone pick-up was decorated with pink paint and said “Men Love Rules”…

    These guys were almost stoned to death (literally) before getting to Mobile, AL — they became so frightened they stopped filming and used soda to wash the paint off of their cars…

    Needless to say, it was hilarious.

    I live in Ft. Worth and while I could MAYBE drive the pink Prius (UGH) I could not/WOULD not drive ANYTHING with THAT name on it (know which one I mean?!! LOL).

    Having lived in south Texas near George Strait’s ranch (well, near in Texas terms) I can DEFINITELY see where this would be detrimental to their health! ha ha! It would be dangerous around this part of Missouri too!
