Online shopping is a wonderful thing. It's convenient, shoppers can often find discounted prices and after a couple of beers, it's downright fun. But there is one caveat: When you shop online, companies like Estately can look at who's buying what and make sweeping generalizations about a group of people.
Alas, that has happened.
In its latest analysis, real estate website Estately looked at data from Google Shopping to see what the most popular searches were in each state relative to others. Texas, as you might expect, was big on guns, cowboy garb and, ummm, we'll call it a skewed version of Southern pride. (Thankfully we weren't the state that is most passionate about Truck Nuts; looking at you, Wisconsin.)
But there were a few surprises on the list, too. Namely, that Texas had some of the least mind-boggling searches. Why are people in South Dakota shopping for "exploding kittens," anyway? (Ohhh, right, it's a card game.)
Here are the items Texans search for most on Google Shopping, according to Estately.
Consider these your "Texan starter kit":
- Truck gun rack
- Cowboy hat rack
- Boot-cut jeans
- '90s overalls
- Daisy Duke shorts
- Leather cuffs
- Concealed carry corset
- Five-toe shoes
- Waterless urinal
- Confederate flag bumper sticker
- Nazi memorabilia
- Casket sprays
- Hillary toilet paper
File these under "useful items":
- Igloo mini fridge
- Urinary catheter
- Motorized kayak (the Rascal of kayaks) -- because how else are you supposed to play you clarinet while on the water?
