“Keep Dallas Pretentious”

“Keep Dallas Pretentious” is yet another imitation of the popular slogan “Keep Austin Weird.” “Keep Dallas Pretentious” T-shirts have appeared from 2005. “Keep Dallas Plastic” is a more popular slogan that appeared slightly before “Keep Dallas Pretentious.”
The seemingly endless imitation Texas city slogans include “Keep San Antonio Lame,” “Keep Dallas Plastic,” “Keep Dallas Douche,” “Keep Houston Dirty,” “Keep Denton Chido,” “Keep Abilene Boring,” “Keep College Station Normal,” “Keep Georgetown Normal,” “Keep Round Rock Mildly Unusual,” “Keep Wimberley Weirder,” “Keep Lubbock Flat” and “Keep Waco Wacko.”

If you’ve never been to Austin and are given the chance, definately go. I forget every time how wonderful that city truly is. Austin’s city motto is “Keep Austin Weird”. This prompted Dallas to start their own city motto, “Keep Dallas Pretentious”.
