    Not one girl in Austin is that hot. #imported

  11. TheBent139 says:

    Plenty of phony cowboys in Texas. People that never touched cattle that drive big 'ol pickup trucks and wear boots and a hat everyday. What's the point of wearing sh*tkickers when there ain't no sh*t to kick? Used to crack me up when I was in Dallas. Why can't they play act country in Austin, too? I guess it's that whole U-N-I-V-E-R-S-I-T-Y thing, isn't it? Them people are a bunch of commie liberals 'cause they done went and got themselves edumacated!

    BTW, the blonde girl on the left of Fallon is smokin' hot. Reminds me of a girl I knew in Texas, she looked like a Texas beauty queen but told me she was from Malibu. I got over that, so why can't a city slicker be a country boy? .
