Texas Wants To Be Twinned With Chile: Bring On The Tunnel

by | 14th, October 2010

TEXAS wants to be Chile. Hell, everywhere wants to be Chile, place of miners, miracles and mistresses. Atascosa County, south of San Antonio, in Texas is so desperate to be Chile that it’s adopted the flag of the South American state as its own. It’s featured on election literature sent out in ballot packages.

The flags of Texas and Chile are no dissimilar. The flags both have a single star on a blue background and a read and white stripe.

They both have a big white stripe on top and a big red one on the bottom. They each have a single star in the middle of a blue field.

Will anyone mistake Texas for Chile? And is the tunnel between the two regions big enough for a ten gallons hat?
