How do you spell SMART?


Apparently, I spell is S-M-R-T!

In my Don’t Mess With Texas post I referenced a bumper sticker we saw:

Favorite bumper sticker sighting so far? A picture of the Texas flag with the word “Succeed.” If that doesn’t capture the typical Texas mentality, I don’t know what does (and remember, I’m a native, so I can say that!)

Here’s the funny thing. It didn’t say “Succeed” as in ‘to accomplish what is attempted or intended.’ Nope, not at all.

It actually said

as in ‘withdraw from an organization or communion.’ As in, break away from the United States and become it’s own country (again).

So, I guess a more appropriate bumper sticker that I would make would say “Succeed at secede?”

No? Well, Mr. Serious thought it was hilarious that I made such a bloggo (which is his coined phrase for a typo on the blog). So, I thought I would tell you how silly I was.

Now, doesn’t this make a lot more sense knowing the Texas mentality?
