IQ: The Texas Seven 

It's been a week since the prison escapees were captured in Woodland Park and Colorado Springs, and we just can't get enough of these guys! While they were visiting, they were model tourists, bolstering the economy by partying down at local nightclubs and going to Bible study, even buying up plenty of hair dye. (It worked! They looked nothing like their mug shots!) Far as we can tell, the escapees didn't let their wild sides show at all, no one got hurt (except the one who committed suicide) and the cops got to flex their muscles and puff up their egos. Yup, we'll have plenty of stories to pass down to the grandkids, about the time the Texas Seven came to town.

Which of the Texas Seven was your favorite? I don't know their names. I guess the guy that talked in the interview to Eric Singer. He's the one I remember; he lasted the longest.

What song do you think they were dancing to at the American Beach Club? "Who let the Dogs Out?"

Where do you swear you could've spotted them? Shopping for women's clothing in the Terra Verde boutique. I helped them with a dress, a purse and accessories.

What prayer were they saying at Bible study? Dear God, let us make it out of town.

Which of the Texas Seven was your favorite? The dead one.

What song do you think they were dancing to at the American Beach Club? "The Yellow Rose of Texas."

Where do you swear you could've spotted them? In Hathaway's; in the back with all the sealed magazines.

Should the RV park where they stayed be turned into a shrine or an amusement park? Isn't it already an amusement park?

Which of the Texas Seven was your favorite? All of them. I loved them all.

What song do you think they were dancing to at the American Beach Club? "The Thong Song."

What prayer were they saying at Bible study? Three Hail Mary's and The Lord's Prayer.

Should the RV park where they stayed be turned into a shrine or an amusement park? They should put up a Wal-Mart shrine dedicated to them, because Wal-Mart is America to its core.

Which of the Texas Seven was your favorite? The one I almost caught for the money.

What song do you think they were dancing to at the American Beach Club? "All My Ex's Live in Texas."

Where do you swear you could've spotted them? In Canada or Mexico.

What prayer were they saying at Bible study? I don't think they were saying a prayer in Bible study.

Should the RV park where they stayed be turned into a shrine or an amusement park? Neither. They were pretty bad guys. You don't build a shrine or an amusement park for bad guys.
