We're not easy to offend, but can it be done? We shall see!

I came across a post on Reddit today where the author was asking to be roasted based on being a Texan. As is typical with these sorts of things, some of the comments are on-the-nose hurtful, some are a swing-and-a-miss, and some are downright hilarious.

I'm going to give five of my favorite comments a rank from 1 to 10, With one being not offended at all and ten being the most offended. These are in no particular order.

This gets a 5 because nobody in Texas actually cares that Alaska is bigger.  But that sh*t you said about Tennessee having better BBQ sauce, that's not cool, man.

Meh. You're saying we don't know how to read?  NASA is here, I think we have some readers in the state. Not offended at all.

Alright, this one gets a 9 because it's damn funny.  You can't deny a good roast.

Ok, that's actually not funny at all.  If I ever find out who made this comment, so help me. Sir, you have NEVER had better brisket in Oklahoma.  That's just false. Blatantly False.
