    Texas longhorn earns the name, breaking Guinness record for length

    A Texas longhorn? Now that's an understatement.
    Indeed, a Lone Star longhorn has broken the Guinness World Record for having the longest horn spread on a steer.
    The record-breaking horns -- they have a 10-foot-7 span -- belong to Poncho Via, a 7-year-old specimen who actually lives in Alabama.
    Poncho was named after a Pancho Villa, an early 20th-century Mexican revolutionary general. The animal namesake was six months old when his owner, Jeral Pope, and his wife saw him and had to have him.



    "My wife and I went somewhere out west, riding a hay wagon," Pope told the Guinness reps. "Up on the hill, outlined against the sky, were three or four longhorns. They stood out like anything on the crest of that mountain – it was the prettiest thing. I told my wife, 'We got to have one of them.'"
    ​​​​​">


    The Popes realized Poncho could potentially have record-breaking horns when he turned 4; they noticed his were growing straight out and didn't curve upward like those of his animal peers.
    Guinness confirmed on May 8 that Poncho's horns were just over an inch longer than the previous recordholder, Sato.

    Reminds me of my old rabbit, Buddy. His balls were record breaking size, they dragged on the ground, felt sorry for the bastard when he hopped around.

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Screw that. Mount them outside your house so the world can see.

    Makes one appreciate how much work pimping can turn out to be.

    Not a limo....a Cadillac or El Camino

    But TheTexan is fully aware of Texas laws governing maximum vehicle width

    https://www.dps.texas.gov/cve/width.htm

    Maximum Width
    The total width of a vehicle, including a load, may not be greater than 102 inches. (Does not include safety devices such as mirrors)

    Autos

    The total width of a passenger vehicle and its load may not be greater than eight feet.
    A passenger vehicle may not carry a load extending more than three inches beyond the left side line of its fenders or more than six inches beyond the right side line of its fenders.
    Texas Longhorns are really only for decoration in Texas nowadays...only transplants or weirdos actually own them. Notice the steer is in Alabama.

    I don't think the Texas DMV would issue an oversize permit for that. And there's no way I would drive it without the proper permits.

    You don't have enough pull to get a permit?

    Not even the governor has enough pull. It's the DMV. They don't $#@! around. Rules are the rules.

    Why do you think people hate the DMV so much? It's not because of the wait. It's because they don't like being told no by a short & fat 65 year old black woman who never graduated high school.
