Obviously someone needs to do a Stalone/Rocky skin for Texas now...

 

Remember though Mouse; what happened in said film...

 

On a personal note; of late I've taken a likng to destroyering up to Nikkies in my Texas, and AP blasting them point blank... Seems to work rather well...

I approve.

 

Is it just me, or do his hands look abnormally small compared to his body?

It's not just you. It's like they photoshopped chicken wings in place of his arms.

A long time ago (before many of you were born probably), there was a book by Daniel De Cruz (spelling?) called "The Ayes of Texas". 

Long story short, the Russians had a plan to take over the world and a weakling of a US President was allowing it (which is strangely prophetic now that I really think about that book). Texas, of course, eschews the status quo and decides to A) secede and B) fight the Russians. 

So, the take the Battleship Texas, replace the powerplant with two submarine nuclear reactors and add about 20 mounts for particle projection cannons (electron beams). One of the engineers actually suggested making it a direct thrust GEV, but no one wanted the Texas trying to fly through the Piney Woods. So, they just gave it jet propulsion (yeah, like a jetski). THEN, the blew up the San Jacinto tunnel (which no longer exists) and the Texas, with it's jet thrusters, surfed the tidal wave out to the Gulf of Mexico and promptly melted the Russian fleet. 

 

Good book.

Confirmed. Lert's image is photoshopped. Glove should be roughly the size of his left pec. #science

Not just you. Something is clearly photoshopped. Especially the right arm...

The Texas already has that patriot camo to counter the commie power of the OC hideous special camo.

LWM I usually take in everything you say to heart. But being from Texas, like my Granddad used to say "That just ain't right". Does look cool though.

The eyes of Texas are upon you
The eyes of Texas are upon you
All the live long days
The eyes of Texas are upon you
And you cannot get away

Do not think you can escape them
From night till early in the morn
The eyes of Texas are upon you
Till Gabriel blows his horn

Considering USS Texas can survive the full fury of a  category 5 Hurricane I do not think a Little White Mouse can hurt it.

USS Texas can withstand two world wars, years of rotting in a dock, and a category 5 hurricane.

Bring in on, Commie.
