    Yes, you can sit in your car in Wichita Falls and have a cold one with your friends. Thanks to the fine folks at P2 this is allowed. DO NOT TRY TO DO THIS IN OTHER PARTS OF THE CITY.

    Yes, in Wichita Falls we take no caution when driving in severe weather. Who cares about snow and ice? I have my truck, I can drive how I want with my four-wheel drive. Hope everyone detects that sarcasm.

    Yes, being sixteen-years-old you're required to drive down Kemp til you hit Southwest Parkway, then U-turn til you hit Kell Boulevard. Repeat this process all weekend long until you run out of gas. This is your life high school kids, never stop doing it.

    I don't know a lot of Wichita Falls people that love Oklahoma as that episode claimed. Also was very mad that they said we had Dairy Queen when one did not exist in our town until a few years ago.
