There must definitely be something in the water in Texas, as another Republican House member from the same State — Steve Stockman — previously proposed the Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act, which included the following excuses:

3. Traded documents for five terrorists
4. Burned for warmth while lost in the Yukon

8. Forced to recycle by municipal Green Czar
9. Was short on toilet paper while camping
