Not WA, and not exactly a joke, but funny I think for a completely over the top (and actual) demonstration of how "they do things BIG in Texas"!
They say it's safe to go fishing on the border when you have this kinda rig!
As many know, we here in Texas have a border problem.
Lake Falcon is a lake that borders Texas and Mexico . Last year several boaters were killed by drug cartel folks from the other side. We are now aware that the automatic weapons used in the killings were probably from "Fast and Furious".
When Texas joined the Union as a sovereign nation in 1836, we retained the right to have a Navy to ward off the Mexicans, since the United States refused to protect us. This is our first Naval vessel of this century, small but potent.
It will soon be safe to fish and boat on the Lake Falcon this summer.
Just about every Texan is prepared to be in a gun fight, and you can't have enough guns.
