Tourists Get a Lei When They Arrive in Hawaii. Can You Guess What Reddit Users Said Texas Visitors Would Receive?

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.
