    Blame it on the rodeos, the enormous cowboy hats, the passion for high school football or the Bush dynasty: Texas is so nuts it's become synonymous with "crazy" in Norway, according to a Tumblr thread discussing use of the word first reported on by Texas Monthly.

    The pub compiled multiple instances of Norwegian speakers using the word online, including a police chief describing a situation concerning reckless foreign truck drivers as, roughly translated, "absolutely Texas" and a story about a fisherman's uncommon swordfish sighting being, also roughly translated, "totally Texas."
