11 Odd & Occasionally Ugly Snow Globes of Texas

Categories: Texas, Whatever

A snow globe that makes sense.
When you think "Texas," you don't necessarily think "snow," unless your mind is drawn to fatal and tragic accidents during Super Bowls in cities that should never have them.

But snow globes are an important aspect of the souvenir trade, so whether the places in question ever actually get much snow or not, there will be round soapflake-filled globules of water depicting them.

And that includes Texas.

Here are 11 snow globes of the Lone Star state, for better or worse.

11. Houston
Here is Houston, with the buildings apparently melting under the onslaught of yet another unbearable August.

10. The Aggies
Reveille's facial expression says it all: We hired a black guy? From Cougar High?!?!?

9. The Longhorns
An animal that looks completely unlike Bevo, Tebowing.

8. The Texas Rangers
If you look closely, the globe says "World Series Champions." We can't imagine why when you click on the Web site's picture of this, it says "file not found."

#7 is a jackalope#6--LOVE the little bats!! And Austin really does have some kind of Batman-looking building downtown. Like his wings, that is. You know what I mean? And it should have little flakes of bat guano to shake up.

Big Tex moves where he wants to. You don't mess w/ Big Tex(as).


Jerry Jones probably got a good deal on a bunch of old Cotton Bowl globes and put a Texas Stadium name tag on them thinking most people are too dumb to notice and then sold them on a limited basis to the people who bought seat licenses at JerryWorld in Arlington.


Hmmmm... so THAT's what an armadillo looks like when not squashed next to the side of the road!
