Can We Take a Minute to Appreciate Texas’ Portion Sizes?

There are a lot of people out there trying to diddle with our Gawd-given liberties. They tell us we shouldn’t drive a truck with more than four wheels, that we can’t smoke cigarettes around our kids, that we should stop putting dead animals inside dead animals inside dead animals. Pffft. There are too many rules on what we can and can’t do these days. Whatever happened to blissful ignorance?

These carrot-crunchers will have you believing that eating 60oz of meat isn’t good for you! Can you believe that? Men eat meat. Real men eat meat until they’re swollen in the belly and clogged in the colon. And if there’s one group of people that knows a thing or two about excess, it’s the Texans. They’re not diddling down. They love big.

We’re going to pay homage to the ‘bigger means better’ Texas mentality by stopping for a moment to consider the Lone Star’s portion sizes:

While this may not be a single person’s portion, we can’t know for sure:
