Hmm. I could see certain parallels between Texas and Yorkshire. Lancashire, I'm not so sure about...

I am intrigued. I grew up in Lancashire and never in a million years would I have likened it to Texas.

C.'s comparisons made even less sense - to me certainly! - than any of those submitted to the poll thus far. Texas is like Lancashire because it doesn't take long to drive through it, apparently. (New Mexico -> Arkansas was the route in question. He's optimistic. Or likes driving even more than I think he does.)

It depends on whether you have to shelter in a concrete toilet block for 12 hours whilst listening to tornado warnings getting closer and closer... or attempt to get a hold of a distant cousin by use of payphones and an answering machine.

But if you're only planning on stopping to take a photo of an Angelina in Angelina forest then it's not too long! :D

The answer I gave would equally apply to Yorkshire - large, important, and not keen on belonging to the country that claims it.

Fine answers. How are Cumbria and Northumberland in terms of independent streaks, I wonder.

Its a little known historical fact that the Wars of the Roses involved not only the Houses of Lancaster and York but, briefly , under the banner of the yellow rose, Jumbo's House of Ribs, in Plano.

It doesn't take long to drive across Texas??? Is he mad?

Btw, I think both Lancashire and Yorkshire are much more like the industrial Great Lakes region of the US. Just saying.

I like my answer though: TX and Lanc. both have tasty meat dishes readily available!

Re: Huh???
Ooo, I like your answer.

Yeah, I know. On this particular point, I will not defend his sanity.
