One of the many reasons we only let our legislature meet once every two years (not counting "special sessions", of course).
Here's a few. Official Texas State:
Bird - MOCKINGBIRD
Dinosaur (yes, really) - BRACHIOSAUR SAUROPOD
Food - CHILI
Fiber - COTTON
Fish - GUADALUPE BASS
Flower - BLUEBONNET (Yes!)
Fruit - TEXAS RED GRAPEFRUIT
Gem - TEXAS BLUE TOPAZ
Nut - PECAN
Insect - MONARCH BUTTERFLY
Flying Mammal - MEXICAN FREE-TAILED BAT
Large Mammal - LONGHORN
Small Mammal (dontcha love it?) - ARMADILLO
Pepper - JALAPENO
Shrub - CRAPE MYRTLE
Sport - RODEO (can't believe it's not high school football)
This last session, between roadtrips, they designated the Official State Snack: CHIPS & SALSA.
I hear they are working on an Official "Getaway" spot, but they're having trouble deciding between Oklahoma and New Mexico.
