What do bathtub meth, beef, and Michael Bay have in common? They can all be found on your local legislator’s Twitter feed.

Sine Die! The session is over and Texas legislators have turned to Twitter to broadcast their very important, very official messages. Maybe they’re tired of having their professional pants on, or maybe the 86th session just left them feeling feisty. 

Either way, the summer break boredom of Texas lawmakers has inspired some ridiculous, bizarre, and downright hilarious tweets.




Because lawmakers have to eat, too.

Rep. Mary González (D-Clint): Local Lawmaker Has the GOAT and Took Glamour Shots to Prove It

To my OG (original goat) and my ride or die, Luna. She was my first goat (as an adult), and while I love all my goats, her and I have a special bond. She and I will just sit next to each other while I do e-mails or as I sing her songs. Can’t you just tell she is the Queen? #txag pic.twitter.com/vs0aKJOg6q
