    The British idea of Texas probably involves hillbillies and cowboys.

    Then the British need to break out an Atlas or something...How many "hills" do we have here in Houston much less people living on mountain tops?

    Now if it were Tennessee, then I would get it or if the name were like Houston "Cheeky Men who rustle up cattle"

    You'll never find more horses in a big city than NY or more art in this country than Houston...

    The logos are just for fun, no need to get up in arms about it. Places never lose their stereotypes no matter how false they are. It's fun to joke around with them.

    That's fine and fair enough. I just have never heard anyone refer to Texans as hillbillies. That is a term reserved for folk from the Appalachians. Since most of my family is from the mountains in SW Va., I am well familiar with the term. If the guy is going to joke around with stereotypes, at least get the stereotypes right. It makes for better jokes.

    I think hillbillies is a stereotype for much of the south. Being from Texas, I consider Appalachian people hill billies as well but if you're from Portland, Oregon (like this guy is) then you might just group the entire region together. Heck, my sister lives in Dallas and says they like to consider Houstonian's hill billies just like we consider Dallasites rich, uppity snobs.

    Meh, if you say so. Been asked a hundred times if I have a horse and cowboy hat, but never heard reference to hillbilly for Texans.

    If they wanted to stereotype Houston, rednecks would have been much more applicable than hillbillies.

    To those without proper culture and upbringing--the terms are interchangeable.

    ahem, Texas is not the "South". "Southern" - Mississippi or Alabama (think SEC) cultures were very different than those who settled Texas. If you are from Texas you may think you are a part of that old southern culture but they don't think you are (and really, we wouldn't want to be a part of that anyway). Southern culture is not even remotely close to Texan culture...hell, even today. Texas was dominated by German immigrants. The Brits colonized all the way to the Mississippi river, had the bad teeth and preferred blacks over Mexican slave labor. Also everyone knows that the Clampets were from Tennessee and Granny was from Arkansas.

    I think it's part South, part Southwest, and part it's own culture. It is very different than Mississippi, Alabama, etc. From an outsider's perspective though, they'll group it in with the South.

    I donno about that. I think "some" people do, but I think that most don't. This is just from my perspective based on living in the South and in California and in other parts of the North East. I think 'most' people think that the stereotypical Beauregard Southern Gentleman isn't a Texan stereotype (this among many other examples that could be made).
