Dallass (Dallas nickname)

"Dallass” (or “DallASS") is a spelling for some people who do not like the city of Dallas or the Dallas Cowboys. It’s sometimes used with “Texass” to form “Dallass, Texass.”

“Dallass” has been in print from at least 1993 and “Dallass, Texass” from at least 1995.

What about the Dallass defensive guy who got caught dancing before he walked into the end-zone by Don Beebe?

IMHO, the Eagles have a good shot at making the playoffs. I also don’t really care about what all the pundits are saying about them. There’s been so much DallASS kissing going on, I’m sick of their moronic predictions which almost never come out correct anyway.

Don’t know about fish kills, but from my perspective it wasn’t nearly cold enough as the Dallass Cowgirls, the city of Dallas and, in fact, the whole State of Texas, is still functioning.
