Change your profile pic now!

The Great State Fair of Texas has chosen not to renew Bill Bragg's contract. You might know him as BIG TEX'S FREAKING VOICE.

They say they're going to find a new Big Tex voice to go with the new Big Tex. I say no. No, this. No auditions. No new bullshit voice. I say it's time for us to do something about it. It's time to demand change. To act. To really make a difference. And we all know how that's done: It's time to change our profile pictures.

Real Big Tex would be so pissed about this. He's probably still in a Big Tex coma, so I bet they didn't even ask him if he wanted new vocal cords.

Let's do something about this. Let's change our Facebook profile pics to this for three minutes straight:

DO IT! DO IT NOW, DAMMIT!

Let's gchat with our friends about how mad this makes us. Let's write The State Fair of Texas strongly worded emails. Let's blow up their Facebook page and Twitter accounts with reasons why Bill Bragg is the bomb, and why changing Big Tex is not what The People want.

If social media can't save Bill Bragg's contract, nothing will. We must act. If we don't change our profile pictures for three minutes straight, where will we be? Standing there, at the giant feet of New Big Tex, with our giant corny dogs in our hands, listening to Lance Armstrong, the new voice of New Big Tex? No, please.

I am upset.

Alexander: They're saying this isn't about money.

Meanwhile in the rest of the state NOBODY cares.  The State Fair is Dallas' Rodeo.  Nobody south of Buffalo care.

The Fair runs 24 days each year, I think we can organize protests and surround Big Tex for 24 days.

Yeah man, I remember that time I walked past Big Tex and thought, "Man, that voice is horrible, sure wish it was different and less recognizable."

Alice is getting soft...This should had read "Don't FUCK With Big Tex..." like her other passionate blog posts.

I'd stick with Bill. But maybe there's more to it... Any idea how much Bill wants to use his voice? Ask the hard questions!

So the contract for Big tex's voice falls to a new person this year and she promptly fires/doesnt renew him.  Not a good way to make a name for yourself.  You should be fired for being a dumb bitch.  Or better yet, maybe your office should burn down, then you should get fired.  Gooddaytoya

Wouldn't stick with Bill but would definitely ask the hard questions...
