Once again, Texans have represented their home state well on Interwebs.

Tumblr user mapsontheweb made a map of the U.S. that featured the most upvoted choices for a Reddit question asking what tourists would immediately receive when visiting each state. Tourists traditionally get a lei the instant they step onto Hawaiian soil, for example.

Residents of some states' used the responses to make light of problems (Pennsylvanians said tourists would receive a flat tire), but folks online knew better than to mess with Texas. Reddit decided that visitors to the Lone Star State would receive BBQ brisket and a breakfast taco.
We Texans sure do like talking up our brisket and tacos to out-of-state visitors, but it seems like a bit of a stretch that we'd be willing to give 'em out for free.
