    I've already voted for "Don't Mess With Texas"... I though maybe some more would like to do the same. :wink:


    The Texas Highway Department's anti-litter slogan "Don't Mess With Texas" has been nominated for a very prestigious advertising award. If it were to win, a Bronze Plaque would be placed on Madison Avenue's "Advertising Walk of Fame" in New York City and would also get a permanent place at the Advertising Icon Museum in Kansas City .

    Please go HERE and vote!

    The competition is tough, like "Got Milk?" "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas"; "The breakfast of Champions"; and others; so please vote before September 29, 2006 and tell your fellow Texans to do likewise.

    Wouldn't it be cool for New Yorkers to have to walk past a Bronze Plaque every day that said, "DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS"?

    P.S. Please pass this on to all of your Texas friends!! This is a matter of "Texas Pride"! We can win this if everybody forwards the link to their friends, and they vote. Do it now.

    I pretty much tolerate Texans and things from Texas...but in my opinion that was the best slogan out there. Gave it may vote. LOL

    I am a texan by heart. I wasn't born here, but I have lived here for 15 years, and wouldn't consider leaving. Texas get's my vote on everything except the cowboys, still lean towards my chargers... All kidding aside, Texas is a great place to call home...
