Edge of the Earth Found!


From The New York Times: “To say that Texans love football would be an understatement. Texans love football the way Johnny loved June. Texans love football the way Donald Trump loves his hair. Texans love football the way Kanye West loves Kanye West. The religious-like attendance at high school football games all across Texas is a testament to our devotion to the sport. The passion can get even more intense the further you get from the city. When traveling through small-town Texas on a Friday night in the Fall, it’s liable to seem like a ghost town unless you happen to pass the stadium, and the only stations you’ll get out in the boonies will be gospel, country and broadcasts of high school football games.”

flat earth theory

In Flat Earth City,
it’s oh so pretty,
and the mayor there is nice.
He has such wisdom,
you’ll know his system
and never call it Vice.
Go right, go test, go east or west
young man you’re on a roll…
you’ll learn the things fat ladies sing
at cost, your very soul.
Now don’t you snicker, for here’s the kicker:
your treasure map awaits!
No up, no down, to earn this crown:
you master all the fates.
Just one more thing to get your ring,
you need obey the rules:
the physics of the gritty city
is never kind to fools.
