Description

New York Times best-selling author Leland Gregory is definitely messing with Texas in his book Stupid Texas. This time, Leland-who has so entertainingly highlighted humanity's stupidity in the areas of crime, business, love, politics, cruelty, and history-collects evidence to prove the widespread belief that deep in the heart of Texans lies an extraordinary capacity for absurdity. Culled from print, online, and broadcast media, Stupid Texas is an uproarious collection of true stories, trivia, and factoids about the Lone Star State, such as: "In 1875, James Stephen Hogg, the first native-born Texan to become the state's governor, named his daughter-Ima." "In 1984, a Texas District Court judge sentenced a 31-year-old Houston man to 35 years in prison-for stealing a 12-ounce, $2 can of Spam."show more
