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.

Protest of The Day: University of Texas Students Will Carry Dildos Around to Speak Out Against Guns

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??

#IStandWithAhmed tops Twitter trending as a Muslim 9th Grader gets arrested for making a clock.

Ahmed Mohamed, a 9th grader at McArthur High in Irving, Texas, was sitting in class when one of his homemade inventions began beeping. The teacher asked what it was and he brought up the digital clock he had made. She said it looked like a bomb and shortly after, police led Ahmed out of the school in handcuffs.

The Dallas Morning News gave a striking portrayal of what seems like a really good kid.

So the 14-year-old missed the student council meeting and took a trip in handcuffs to juvenile detention. His clock now sits in an evidence room. Police say they may yet charge him with making a hoax bomb — though they acknowledge he told everyone who would listen that it's a clock.

In the meantime, Ahmed's been suspended, his father is upset and the Council on American-Islamic Relations is once again eyeing claims of Islamophobia in Irving.



Ahmed's father isn't the only one who is upset. Social media has exploded in frustration over Ahmed's treatment. Through #IStandWithAhmed, bewildered supporters, many of the same generation, have taken to Twitter and Facebook to express their anger over what they see as patent racism.





The Dallas Morning News posted this wrenching interview with Ahmed, which helps explain the uproar his arrest and suspension has caused.



"It made me feel like I wasn't human. It made me feel like a criminal."

Jeez.



Misunderstanding, denigrating and humiliating a very smart person for no apparent reason other than wanton mistrust.



This is how super villains are made.

That cannot have been comfortable.

KCEN is reporting that Waco, Texas Police found more than they were looking for while arresting a couple for trafficking meth.

During the arrest a male and female were taken into custody. While transporting the suspects it was discovered that that female had concealed a fully loaded Smith and Wesson .22 cal. Semi-auto handgun inside her v@gina.

...A further search of the vehicle found 29.5 grams of Methamphetamine in the female passenger's purse along with a set of digital weighing scales. That Hispanic female, Ashley Cecilia Castaneda, 31, was arrested and charged with Possession of Methamphetamine in a Drug Free Zone.

During Castaneda's transport to the jail she told the officer that she had concealed a handgun inside her v@gina. Officers immediately stopped and a female officer searched Castaneda discovering she had in fact placed a loaded Smith and Wesson pistol inside her body cavity. The weapon had a round chambered and a full magazine of bullets.



There's no telling how long she had it up there or whether she could get to it quickly. Seems like an inconvenient place to store a weapon if a drug deal went bad.

"Hold on, hold on. I knew I shouldn't have worn a romper."

Genius Idea of the Day: Texas Student Rides Barbie Jeep Around Campus After DWI Arrest

That's one way to deal with having your license suspended.

Texas State student Tara Monroe is turning heads and catching the attention of the Internet after deciding to use a very unusual mode of transportation on campus—a hot pink and purple Barbie Jeep.

Monroe's license was suspended after refusing a breathalyzer test while leaving a Waka Flocka concert, she told MySA.com.

The industrial engineering junior decided to purchase the Barbie Jeep on Craigslist for $60, and she named it after the little girl she bought the jeep from—Charlene.

Since Monroe started going around town with Charlene, the college student has become sort of a minor celebrity. Other students post pictures of her on Snapchat and Twitter quite regularly.

"This is the best way I could have gotten my 15 minutes of fame," she said. "Basically, it was the best decision I've made in college, yet…"

Thousands of Spiders make a mega web and destroy your sanity. Nothing can stop them now.

Thousands of spiders have teamed up in Rowlett, Texas to create a Mega-web. And that's really the scientific term used to describe this disgusting phenomenon.



Agrilife.com talked to entomologist Mike Merchant about this horror show:

"Someone stepping off the road for a closer look will see thousands of lanky spiders darting among the webs that extend up to 40 feet into the trees," he said. "There is a surreal quality to the extensive webbing covering these trees."

"[I]t is rare to see them building such large nests in the U.S. Spider experts have indicated that those 'right conditions' appear to include a glut of small insects like midges that emerge at night from lakes. Without lots of food, these communal webs just don't seem to form."

"These types of spiders are unusual in that they are not aggressive to other spiders of the same species on the same web," he said. "They also are not known to bite or be harmful to humans."



Yeah, whatever buddy.

Local station WFAA also reported on the spillage of nightmare fuel, saying that it is many different species of spiders that make up the monstrosity which will haunt your dreams into eternity.



Something like millions of mosquitos, flies and other spider food is supposed to be the cause of this cataclysm and now that they've gotten the taste for teamwork, probably nothing will stop them ever.

You just know this is a bad graphic to see on the nightly news:

A dramatic rescue in Sachse, Texas quickly took a turn for the funny on Friday, when a local cop was brought on a lengthy joyride over a farm.

In the video above from FOX 4 news, the unnamed officer is airlifted by a Department of Public Safety helicopter after his car gets stuck in the rising flood waters.

The news anchors covering the event watch as he attaches himself to the harness and soars off to safety.

But once they’ve reached dry land, they don’t let him down very quickly. Instead he is taken on a 4-minute long flight across some cow-filled pastures while the world watches and the anchors laugh.

“Where are they taking him?” asks one of them, to which the other replies “It’s kind of an odd sight, isn’t it?”

They joke that maybe the extended trip was punishment for ruining a perfectly good police car.

He was eventually lowered to the ground, and will likely rise up to viral video stardom.

“He’s happy to be out and safe,” another cop named Lt. Marty Cassidy told WFAA news. “He knows he’s not going to live this down.”

About 100 jars of human brains went missing from The University of Texas at Austin years ago, and the school kicked off an investigation this week as to their whereabouts.

The brains were originally transferred from the Austin State Hospital and were collected from various autopsies dating back to the 1950s. The jars are each labeled with a date and a diagnosis.

The collection includes schizophrenics and one even belongs to Charles Whitman, the sniper who killed 16 people on campus in 1966.

A renewed interest in the mystery was sparked by the recent release of a new book called "Malformed: Forgotten Brains of the Texas State Mental Hospital." After news of the the missing brains spread online, it was reported that the brains ended up at University of Texas in San Antonio, but this turned out to be incorrect, according to the New York Times.

Have you seen these brains?
