Jordan, who travels around the world with his shows, says he has a special place in his heart for Texas: “[That] place gets my vote for the best place on earth. All those straight cowboys…wear the tightest Wrangler jeans I’ve ever seen with belt buckles you could serve a turkey on! And there I sit ready for the show! Bring on the cowboys! Yeah, Texas!” Of course, not all the sights in Texas are as appealing. “I was flying home from Dallas last week, and I saw this woman who had to be in her late seventies with sweat pants that had “JUICY” written across her ass. I wanted to tap her on the shoulder and say, “Honey, there is nothing juicy about your behind. That ship has sailed!”
