Inter-state humor involving “sucks” and “blows” is not unique to Texas and Oklahoma and New Mexico. A popular joke is: “Q” Why doesn’t Texas fall into the Gulf of Mexico? A: Because Oklahoma sucks!”
One variant is: “Q: Why is Oklahoma so windy? A: Because Texas sucks and Kansas blows.”
Another variant is: “Q: Why is New Mexico so dry? A: Because Texas sucks!”
