The Sam Houston Memorial Decanter

My sidekick, the Beaumont Bearkat, actually went to college in a prison town — Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. When the sirens went off to warn the town about an escapee, she said they would open the dorm windows, fire up a cigarette, and get out the Jack Daniels. One of those party campuses that I’ve only heard about.

How appropriate then that they built an enormous milk white decanter of the great Sam Houston out on Interstate 45. I’ve seen decanters of W.C. Fields, Robert E. Lee, King Kong, and a melancholy rodeo clown but this one wins the booby prize.

Very nice gift shop, though.
