RIP Big Tex

It's a sad day in North Texas.  Big Tex, which is the iconic symbol of the Texas State Fair since 1952....

...had a tragedy this morning.  Big Tex caught on fire and burned to the ground.  Nothing but his skeleton is left.  Poor Big Tex.  

Big Tex's corpse
SP and I were cracking up watching the news b/c they had eye witnesses saying...

Witness: 'We all know Big Tex does not smoke, so we were wondering why he was'

HA!  Too funny!

RIP Big Tex :(  I am sure you will reincarnate in some grander, more exciting way!
