Hmmm, timmay, seems like a fellow Texas resident just refuted that:

Last time I checked, my toilet flushes into your drinking water.
As for the whole debate, I don't give a shit about where anyone is from, but as someone who worked at Purgatory ski resort for years, Texas was the easy target. Smart, educated people seemed to leave their brains at the state line, with such lines as "at what elevation do the deer turn to elk" or "why do y'all build the fences so short around here". How can you not laugh and make fun when you hear that?
For the record, in Durango we also made fun of the cars that had "caution plates" or "warning plates" on them, warning you that a New Mexico driver was behind the wheel (New Mexico license plates are yellow, and their drivers are not, ummm, the most skilled or the most sober).
All in good fun.
Anyone who takes this shit seriously, who would really judge anyone they didn't know based upon what state they were from, has problems.
