Don't panic, this isn't going to be long diatribe about the state of our country or the idiots that run it (no offence meant to any Labour supporters out there) but a brilliant quote I heard on the radio today.

I only caught about 5 minutes of a programme on Radio 4 today as I was in and out of the car. Entitled "Deep in the Heart of Texas", the programme explored the history of Austin. One guy they were interviewing came out with this brilliant definition of politics:

"Poli"...more than one

"tics"....blood-sucking insects

It did come over better on the radio when spoken, especially with a Texan drawl!

If you'd like to listen to it, you can hear it on the BBC website here


  1. and another proud Texan says "yee-haw"!

    Our local ball team couldn't play the other day because the field was too wet. The solution? Pour gasoline down the baseline and set it on fire. When the flames went out, the game started.

    I love Texas!

  2. That is the most "right-on" definition I have ever heard --- in any accent! We need a touch of humor over here about now.

  3. Ah … this is wonderfully perfect somehow! Thanks for sharing ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,
