Lone Star State, here's a guide to the very best Texan phrases:
“I'm madder than a wet hen!” ...
“He's all hat and no cattle.” ...
“More than you can shake a stick at.” ...
“Ready and rarin' to go.” ...
“Bless your heart.” ...
“Might could.” ...
“I wouldn't trust him any farther than I could throw him
Texans don't say “Pepsi”, “Sprite”, “soda”, or “pop”… it's all “Coke” to us.
Texans don't always say “f#$& you” to your face… they say “bless your heart.”
Texans definitely don't say “would you fine people like to join me?”… they say “ya'll come here now.”

"A man from Iowa or Illinois will say 'I'm from the Middle West'..a Georgian or a Mississipian may admit to being merely a Southerner...but no Texan, given the opportunity, ever said otherwise than 'I'm from Texas'."
