Got Big Tex jokes? Try these

Oak Cliff-based artist Clay Stinnett already has updated some of his Big Tex paintings to mark the Dallas icon’s fiery death.

When Big Tex burst into flames this morning, at first, I was sad. But then, no one was hurt. And Big Tex was not a real person, so then I was happy because, Jokes! Open season.

Push away your sorrows about the death of Big Tex with humor. These are some of the best jokes we’ve heard or seen today.

*Welcome to the State Flare of Texas.
*Big Tex wants to meet us at Char Bar for lunch.
*They should do Burning Man in Dallas every year.
