Talkin' Texan: Learn It, Durn It

I've previously discussed some of the wonderful and whacky idiosyncrasies of the Texan "language", but perfecting the ins-and-outs could take you a lifetime and you might need a quick crash course.

The designers at Public School have created a flashcard set "handcrafted by cowboy hat wearin' Texans and printed on manilla paper [that] will pony you up on the Texas vernacular in a New York minute." They've also included a "Texan Sayings" that'll get you fixin' to master the language faster than green grass through a goose! That way you can make use of such colorful expressions as, "You can put your boots in the oven, but that don't make 'em biscuits" (you can say whatever you want about something, but that doesn't change what it is).
