Texas’s reaction to double hurricanes: Turn it into a meme
A couple days ago, Louisiana & Texas were preparing for the incoming tropical storm Marco. Luckily the storm largely dissipated in Louisiana, leaving Texas land mostly unscathed. However, Texas hasn’t seen the end of the storm’s fury yet. With news of Tropical Storm Laura approaching, Texans are coping with a double-whammy hurricane threat.
With anticipation high, everyone has their way of preparing for an oncoming storm. Some rush to the store to stock up on emergency supplies – nonperishables, water, toilet paper, household essentials. Texans, however, are handling their dread a different way.
How does one face incredible misfortune & utter ruin? Texas is finding a way to laugh about it – and they’ll probably be throwing back a couple beers while they’re at it. Texas, we send our prayers & memes your way. In memes we trust.
Bring it on
Patriotism & guns can fight a hurricane, right?

Drinking through a quarantine is a given – especially in Texas. Might as well keep the party going, right?

Brisket: A hurricane essential
Apparently in Texas brisket is such an important staple that it needs to be rationed – limited to two per person. Can’t face a devastating hurricane without brisket, duh!
Texans are always bragging about how big their state is, and how they have extra large everything. Sorry Texas, you were asking for this giant hurricane.

Who needs any other kind of speed measurement? Cats are much cuter than anemometers.

Storm outside, party inside
What else is there to do except drink away your troubles?
Please be safe Texas
All of these activities look like a really bad idea – but they also look fun. But, seriously, don’t try it Texans!
A man goes to a bar in texas: Can I have a corona and two hurricanes please.
Bartender: That’ll be $20.20.

Texas bar in 2020
Oh, 2020 – how you have tortured us so. We’d like our money back.
This list pretty much sums it up. RIP Texas. Wishing you the best.
