You had me at "cookie fries."

If you've been to the Texas State Fair, you've probably eaten some of Isaac Rousso's famous award-winning treats like his funnel cake fries, deep-fried hash browns stuffed with bacon and cheddar cheese, smoky bacon margarita, deep fried Cuban rolls, fried Pop Tarts, and, yes, cookie fries.



Rousso has just won the right to open a restaurant in Plano Wal-Mart next week where he can serve these deep-fried artery-cloggers to Texas' poorest shoppers 365-days a year.

According to Eater Dallas, "The chain is also in talks about a "nation-wide" expansion, which would bring State Fair Treats to Walmart stores across the country depending on how things go in Texas."



Well, as for the cookie fries, they are described as deep-fried cookies that come in flavors like chocolate chip or sprinkles, and are shaped like a French fry and served with strawberry or milk chocolate sauce.

Okay, i'm game for that "nationwide [pants] expansion."



Wal-Mart road trip time.

"We've had that cat five years, and there's never been a question," Mayor Ron White relayed to The Fort Worth Star Telegram. "That cat doesn't have anything to do with whether somebody can have their puppy at City Hall. That cat doesn't hurt anybody... The council just went out and did this on their own because they don't like cats."

Craigslist Ad of The Day: 'Romeo Rose' Has a Job Opening no Woman Would Ever Want

This Craigslist ad sounds legit.

You might remember Romeo Rose from a few years ago. He's the guy who created a website called "Sleepless in Austin" where he promised to give someone $1,500 if they found him the woman of his dreams.

He has particular tastes, according to The Daily Dot.

Rose, real name Laramie Busby, is allegedly back again! And 2015 is a new era in his search for love.

A Craigslist ad claims he is creating a "kissing documentary" and will give you (young women of his choosing) $10,000 if selected to star alongside him. And presumably kiss him.

Now, this isn't verified. Could anyone have written this Craigslist post? Yes. Could Romeo Rose have written it? Yes.

Who knows? Respond and see if you are one of the ~lucky~ ladies.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott made a lot of Houston Astros fans angry today.

A congratulations tweet from an account run by his staff was inadvertently sent during the seventh inning of the Astros vs Kansas City game. The team was winning 6-2 at this point, but not for long.

Kansas City pulled an upset and went on to win 9-6. Many people on Twitter accused the Republican governor of jinxing the team.

The governor responded in his own sassy way.

The Astros will take on the Royals in game 5 Wednesday night due to Greg Abbott's curse.

You dildon't want to miss out on this protest.

In response to a new law passed in Texas that allows students to carry concealed guns on campus, some students at The University of Texas at Austin are planning a very unique way to speak out.

A Facebook event using the hashtag #CocksNotGlocks is encouraging students to strap sex toys onto their backpacks August 2016 to protest.

Event organizer Jessica Jin had this to say about the protest:

"'You're carrying a gun to class? Yeah well I'm carrying a HUGE D*LDO,'" she said in the group's description. "Just about as effective at protecting us from sociopathic shooters, but much safer for recreational play."

If you say so, Jessica.

Man blames Black Lives Matter for vandalizing his truck, but the twist is, he did it.

Yuck.
A man in central Texas reported his truck was vandalized by Black Lives Matter supporters Sept. 9, because he had decorated the vehicle with messages saying "Police Lives Matter".



Well, according to the local FOX News affiliate, it turns out that was a complete lie.

Scott Lattin, a disabled veteran, told Whitney police on Sept. 8 someone tagged his truck with "Black Lives Matter" and other graffiti because he displayed pro-police messages and symbols on his pickup.

But on Friday afternoon, Whitney police arrested Lattin on a misdemeanor charge of making a false police report.



Apparently, Lattin made the police report about the spray painting, then further vandalized his own truck before the news got the story.

Smart move.



"We had initial video when the officers took the report and then when we saw your story on Channel 4. When we looked at those two videos, there were some differences in those and that led us to take the investigation into a different direction," Bentley said.

Bentley said when they took the report there was no damage to the inside of the truck. But when FOX4 showed up, Lattin showed that the glove box was ripped off and the seats slashed.





Police arrested Lattin for making a fake police report and the damage totaled the vehicle, adding up to $5,000.

So, I guess the joke's on him??
