Making Dallas Even Better

Sh*t Dallas People Say

It’s way, way too long.

Best line comes early. “Can you get me a Coke?”  “What kind?”  “Dr Pepper.”

But that’s not even really a Dallas-specific thing, is it?

(H/T: Pegasus News)

  • J-Rome

    Funny Sh*t!! You guys summed it all up.

  • Nic

    Yep. Waaaaay too long. I think she had to list every restaurant in Dallas.

  • Ted Fulmer

    For me the high point was singing the milestone electric jingle

  • Brandon

    Not even remotely funny. Poor execution.

  • Jason Heid

    @Ted Fulmer: I stand corrected. You’re right. That was the best moment.

  • Jason Heid

    Whatever brave soul attempts to improve upon this effort:

    Please include a rendition of the classic “748-1414, 748-1414, Call the Dallas Times Herald Classifieds.”

  • mynameisbill

    **** that bill says: “I hope they don’t make anymore of these dumb-azz videos”…

  • Tom

    Their accents are very un-Dallas

  • Fred

    The first meal I ate in Texas, was in Longview back in ’83.
    Me: “…and a large coke.”
    Waitress: “What kind?”
    Me: “What kind of what?”
    Waitress: “What kind of coke do you want?”
    Me: Completely confused, “What kind of coke do you have?
    Waitress: “Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Dr Pepper, 7up & root beer.”

  • Brandon

    Regarding the Coke thing: I have lived in Dallas my entire life and I have NEVER heard anyone say that. I have only heard OF people saying that.

  • cheryl

    OMG had to give up too loooong. Plus, I wanted to kill her.

  • Brad

    See, the problem is that you’re supposed to say funny things in these videos. Not just “things”.

  • Joy

    @Jason Held Yes, that jingle for the DTH Classifieds is burned in my brain.

    The dude on the couch is not funny. The girl had a few good lines but not enough.

  • George Curious

    Brandon – You must have zero sense of humor and you probably live in a Dallas suburb.

    Fred knows what’s happening. Most of my relatives live in Tyler and i guarantee most East Texas Folks refer to all soft drinks as Coke.

    This is one of the funniest videos i’ve seen in a long time!

  • Matt

    Gosh damn it, that was piss poor. Come on can we do better than that???

  • George Curious

    Can you? Do you have a mouse in your pocket?

  • Glenn Hunter

    @George Curious: Ditto for the Texas Panhandle, where I learned that “Coke” can mean an orange soda.

  • mynameisbill

    @George Curious…your friends didn’t do a bad job….it just wasn’t good. also, the chicks voice is grating to the ears.

  • fred

    I don’t think they are Dallas natives. They did miss quite a few things and didn’t even mention any local schools, just “DISD sucks”. I don’t think a native would have said that unless it was in a way mocking the “972s” (that part they got right).

  • BrandonS

    I laughed exactly zero times. The Coke line was good, and it would have been good if the girl would have only named off dozens of restaurants when referring to the best margaritas (forget brunch, burgers etc). I could go on, but I already wrote too much in my comment about the DMV.

  • Tommy H

    other funny lines:

    “Wait, we have a hockey team?”


  • Mike

    Too Funny and yes very true

  • moderndaymicah

    here’s a chart so yall can figure out the coke, pop, soda deal.

  • Chris M

    How about these:

    “They don’t have valet?!?!”

    “We bought a tear-down in _____”

    “What are you wearing to Cattle Baron’s?”

  • Tony

    Leave it to someone from Dallas to make the worst “Sh*T People Say” video….haha
    Also the longest, and Fattest one hahaha….


    Dallas is lame move if you can :)
