Texas A&M plays LSU in the Cotton Bowl tonight, and governors Rick Perry and Bobby Jindal can barely contain their dorky excitement.

Usually this results in some godawful BBQ vs. crawfish bet, but these guys are so hip-it-hurts that they've taken the taunting to Twitter.

And boy, is it....lame.

Perry offers some excerpt from an Aggie song (we're guessing):

@GovernorPerry There's a spirit can ne'er be told, it's the Spirit of Aggieland!! Go Ags BTHOlsu

Jindal, who -- we're told -- is not exactly the biggest follower of college football, responds with, yes, an Aggie joke.

@BobbyJindal Hey @GovernorPerry, how many freshman Aggies does it take to screw in a lightbulb? http://youtu.be/9DrQqilsDfA Geaux Tigers!

You want the linked hilarity? Here it is:

Oy. Jindal was a lot funnier in his State of the Union response, although we don't think he intended to be.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
