Bigger Than Texas

Fun facts to drop into the conversation when you’re next chatting to Americans.

Q: How many Australian states and territories are bigger than Texas?
A: Five (WA, Qld, NT, NSW, SA)

(Australian states by landmass here. Texas is 695,000 square km, meaning you could fit three Texases into WA. Oh, and it’s true that Texas isn’t America’s largest state, but both WA and Qld are also bigger than Alaska.)

    Texan to Aussie: “Why, Texas is so big that I can drive in my car in a straight line for days and never leave the state”
    Aussie to Texan: “Yeah, I had a car like that once”.
    Ba-boom

    At this point a large red kangaroo jumps over the Texan’s head and he exclaims “What the hell was that” ?

    Aussie to Texan: “A grasshopper”.

    I once heard a joke about Texas and Alaska that went something like this. When Texas complained about Alaska being incorporated into the union, on the grounds that they would no longer be the largest state, someone suggested that Alaska could be split into two states. Then Texas wouldn’t even be the second largest state in the union!!!
