Those who didn't grow up in the greater Houston area may not know that Gilley's Club, featured prominently in Urban Cowboy, is a real place. Or it was a real place. The club featured in the movie was the original Gilley's Club in Pasadena, Texas (which is, by the way, "urban" in the same way that New York is "cozy"). The burnt down under mysterious circumstances after the original founders of the club had a falling out. The club is now located in an actual urban area in Dallas, Texas where rich frat boys from SMU can put on boots, hats and pretend to know how to two-step while requesting Eminem songs.

But we digress. While there are plenty of people who need trucks and live in cities and more than a few who merely want one, this sometimes rubs people like Deezee the wrong way as we found out in today's post about the F150's downfall:

Nothing bothers me more than when I see people with shiny F-150's in the city.

YOU LIVE IN THE CITY. YOU DONT HAUL ANYTHING. YOU DONT BUILD HOUSES FOR A LIVING. YOU'RE NOT A COWBOY. WHAT ARE YOU DOING STICKING HALF WAY OUT OF THE COMPACT PARKING IN THAT THING?! WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PROVE?!

While we're big believers in personal automotive choice, we're starting to get a bit tired of people who consider the non-XL Expedition a compact car.
