Picture 1 looks root beer float-y to me.

Meade said...

A fly in spooge of some sort.

Waterloo Ice House.

Went shopping.

Is the "man-like object" in the video supposed to be Will Rogers?

Synova said...

Oh, freaky. "Man-like-object" indeed. Ack.

Pic 1: Looks like a fly flew into the bottom of a glass that used to have a cappuccino in it.

Pic 2: My best guess is Cracker Barrel.

Vid: Mine won't load all the way, all I can see is about 3 seconds, but it looks like a wax museum.

I don't know what the first one is, but you got some barbeque for lunch (at Ruby's on 29th?), and that last one is taken at the LBJ Presidential Museum.

hdhouse said...

Is the top one Jessica Vilanti? Just a guess.

Simon said...

LMAO @ HDH's 10:29 PM. If only the whole thing could be solved with bug spray.

Ann Althouse said...

Is the video not working? (I'm having trouble with it.)

Simon said...

Video works fine here.

peter hoh said...

Oh, yeah. LBJ makes a whole lot more sense than Will Rogers.

3 questions from Texas.

1 answer is all that's needed: who gives a fuck?

Peter Palladas said...

If #2 is, as appears, a plate of industrial strength beans then I have no desire to reflect where it would have led you.

I know where it would have taken me.

Nancy said...

1. Beetle or bug in the foam of a spilled capuccino.

2. Lunch at Threadgills

3.Animatronic someone....my video won't load...

Ann, are those beans in that chili? If so, it ain't real Texas chili and whoever served it should be ashamed, or strung up.

Next time, try to get in a visit to the Humanities Research Center on the UT campus. There are some amazing things tucked away there: the first photograph, manuscripts, original music scores... This place is a little-known jewel. See:

Maybe you can file this under "Reasons to Return."

You went to lunch at the salt lick. I moved to south austin to get closer to it.

Bissage said...

Seems to me the first photo is a rock of some kind.

The problem with posts like these (and not just here) is that, by the time the answer is posted, it's usually long after people quit looking for it ;-)

Ann Althouse said...

Donut's right. It's the famous Salt Lick.

And that's just a fly that landed in my cappucino.

And the animatronic LBJ at the LBJ Library.

Anyone who expended the energy to answer the question, that's who. And that would of course include you, dave™©.

mcg said...

Well, since I'm moving to Georgtown TX (indeed I'm already here) I will have to settle for more Rudy's (and Duke's) and less Salt Lick.
