Going back to Dallas, Texas...the hard way

Okay, I can understand the whole wanting-to-get-back-to-Texas thing, though I think being shipped in a box to get here is a tad, um, extreme. But Dallas? That's just weird.

Anyway. I believe I speak for all right-thinking Americans when I say that it is a matter of urgent national importance that the Austin Lounge Lizards write a song about this as soon as possible.

What I found interesting was that the contents were listed as a 350 pound computer and monitor.

I don't think this guy wanted to fly coach due to the outstanding warrants he got arrested on when he got home.

Now, if the Austin Lounge Lizards don't write a song about this, how about Kinky Friedman?

Only in America!

How did this slip past our new! shiny! airport security?

I think Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground already wrote this song. It's called The Gift, and it's as screwed up as anything that brilliant maniac has ever written.
