Peggy DID land in several inches of mud, so that's slightly more plausible than Hank during the tornado.


DikkDowg

And there have been people to fall out of planes and miraculously survive


booyahkaka

And Peggy is one of only sixteen people who have survived parachutes not opening. Sixteen is just my estimate. I'll have to double-check my numbers later.


StrudelStrike

Did you just quote Peggy, or channel your inner Peggy? Because that sounds very Peggy.


bitterducky

That’s a quote, and you can quote me on that! Lol


Razorspi

That is IN MY OPINION a very Peggy thing to say.


[deleted]

That was quotably quoted, my friend. Quotably quoted.


booyahkaka

I watch the show before bed and it's one of my favorite Peggy quotes (said when she was talking to Bobby in the hospital after GH was born). My top favorite though: >If your lies were dollars, I would have a hundred thousand dollars by now, and I would live off the interest. I'd still have to keep my job, but things would be a lot easier. I don't know why, but that one always gets me.


ccbmtg

because she says so much and yet so little lol.


Ohiolongboard

One lady landed on a fire ant colony, which caused her to go into shock and saved her life….crazy


BakedHose

Out of a plane and into a fire ant colony? Jesus christ lol


AuctionPicker

out of the frying pan, into the fire ants


linkpaz15

Out of the FLYING PAN


thatsnotgneiss

Having experience with fire ants, I think I would rather have died.


shmeebear000

In my opinion, fire ants are the worst ants.


DooberNugs

Fyi: spraying fire ant bites with Windex or anything with ammonia inactivates the toxin and relieves the burning/itching!


vallyallyum

I thought this was going to be one of those internet "life hacks" that turned out to be a joke, or a prank so people would spray bleach on themselves, but I'll be got [danged](https://www.google.com/amp/s/agrilifetoday.tamu.edu/1999/07/15/taking-the-bite-out-of-fire-ant-stings/amp/). Thanks for the tip!


MetalicDoctor

I feel like her survival of the fall is more believable than her being able to walk like nothing happened in a short amount of time.


rootingforthedog

The magic of Cotton


11Lost_Shepherd05

The touch, the feel of Cotton


bbbbears

The dang ol fabric of our lives man


lakersfan1989

The fact that she fully recovered in 2 months (she states this during the episode Hank is a substitute teacher due to having too many vacation days in Strickland Propane) is outrageous.


chair_78

She most likely would not have survived if she had landed on concrete


wh1temateria

Or a fence


expizzaguy

Or a wood chipper


FlattopJr

Well fuck.😨


JamesTheJerk

*NOT*, his underpants.


bbbbears

Ummm I’ve seen a barrel of pickles in my day…


Tropical_Nighthawk55

That’s one of the places you want to land if you get in that situation


MoziWanders

*"Oh, don't worry, I seen a barrel of pickles in my day."*


RainbowAbyss44

Bobby Flowers not getting more ladies


Additional_List_2192

Bobby not being an outcast after crashing Joseph’s party dressed as Cupid, acting like a dog while living in a dog house, and the whole peer counseling fiasco.


Saucesourceoah

Maybe, but he’s always been fairy popular as the funny kid and he never once seems insecure. Confidence and charm will make embarrassment a pretty minor thing


Responsible_Cress_64

Maybe he won’t be embarrassed but he definitely wouldn’t be as popular


masterjon_3

But just because you're confident doesn't mean tour awkward. Remember when him and Joseph had the bright idea of hanging around the girls bathroom to pick up chicks?


remember2468

Bill going back to high school and playing football.


NickWatchesMMA

Arlen High Coach was talking about redshirting a player in high school lol


socialpresence

It's Texas, I'd imagine some kids have been held back a year specifically for football irl


NickWatchesMMA

That's a really good point. I didn't consider that


BlackCatMumsy

Parents do it in Ohio so you know they do it in Texas lol.


ExpiredPilot

Happened when I played. Our rival school’s QB was 20 his senior year. He graduated middle school then didnt get enrolled in high school for 2 years so he would be bigger in high school. He ended up a 3rd string QB at a decent football school then transferred to start at JUCO lmao


csonnich

> then didnt get enrolled in high school for 2 years so he would be bigger in high school. What in the holy unfair competition, Batman?


AreYou_MyCaucasian

so what did he do for that two year gap


ExpiredPilot

Training camps probably. He was a pretty good QB for the high school level.


nannerbananers

Is that even legal? Don’t kids have to be in school until 16?


robxburninator

There are a lot of private schools (Mostly boarding schools) all over the northeast that were at one point famous for letting athletes "fifth year" so they could get an extra year of high school play before going to colleges. That's to say, it's not just in Texas, but actually not-all-that-uncommon in other areas of the country.


sandvich48

Billdozer!


4nthonylol

While true, that is crazy, if there is any state and place in the world that'd happen...It's small town Texas. Giving an old football legend at high school another run? Yeah, I'd not even be shocked lol It's football. In Texas.


RejHorn15

Hahaha looking back the whole situation was hilarious


AethelredUnred

As crazy as it sounds, a decent number of people have actually survived similar skydiving incidents. Your odds are terrible, but they aren’t quite zero


throbbing_carbonyl

Sure, I mean, not including Peggy, sixteen people have survived parachutes not opening. Now, sixteen is just my estimate. I'll double-check my numbers later.


pageofcups221

Anyone in the show seemingly driving to Houston, Austin, Mexico, Marfa, Port Aransas, Whichita Falls, San Antonio or Dallas in a matter of a couple of hours. Edit: thought of a few more


evil_con_carne

In my head canon Arlen is located somewhere in the Waco/Killeen/Temple/Belton area. For example: Waco to Houston or Wichita Falls would be like 3 or 4 hours, Waco to Dallas or Austin would be under 2 hours, and Waco to Laredo or Port Aransas would be around 6 hours. Not the most comfortable trip, but definitely doable. Edit: it would also make sense for Bill's job since his military base could be Ft. Hood.


pageofcups221

Yeah, my husband made this argument and that is entirely possible with the error of margin regarding what is considered realistic enough in an animated show. But the episode that makes that hard for me to believe is Lupe’s Revenge where they take a middle school field trip to Mexico and back in a single school day. Waco and similar cities are at least 5 hours away from the Mexican border.


evil_con_carne

True. I'm from the Waco area and even a school trip to Austin would take us the whole day.


the-gribble-report

A strip club. In Houston.


Dependent_Factor_982

My dad would always bring that up when we watched a travel episode


SirMoeHimself

Yes, thank you for saying this! I always found jt hilarious how they could get to these locations like nothing. Like Hank driving to Mexico and back in the same day and getting home by 7.


Accomplished_Exit_30

Arlen wherever the story needs it to be.


Naillian603

I thought this literally yesterday. When Hank goes to Vegas to find Cotton because he left Didi. He gets there, it’s late at night and when he finds cotton his original plan is to take him and just drive back to Arlen. That’s roughly a 20 hour drive back! Cotton convinced him to stay but still, what kind of mentality is that?


pageofcups221

I totally forgot about that episode! It has to be the most glaring of all the plot issues with drivable distance.


letmethinkofagoodnam

In “Uh Oh Canada” the Canadians looked like regular people instead of having flappy heads and beady eyes


wordsinmouth

My favorite exchange in the whole show is from this episode. "I bet you don't even know who our prime Minister is!" ".. Hwhy? 😒" - Hank Hill


scoo89

I was a young Canadian watching that episode and this resonated with me. Like, why would I care if an American can't find Saskatchewan on a map? Why would that matter? Growing up in a border city I'd get so annoyed when Americans didn't know anything about Canada, but really that doesn't affect me.


evil_con_carne

Don't call me pal, buddy!


letmethinkofagoodnam

I’m not your buddy, guy!


Sirengina

I'm not your guy, fwiend!

Or just the death grips of smoking addiction in that episode after like a week of doing it lol


Morethanafeeling62

Bill putting on an insane amount of muscle in like 2 weeks while training with those meatheads


whatnameisnttaken098

To be fair he was working out with Macho Man Randy Savage


escudonbk

NO AGONY NO BRAGENY! OH YEAH!


throbbing_carbonyl

I know it’s a good workout when blood vessels in the back of my eyes POP! That scene is sheer genius!


Morethanafeeling62

How much longer til bedtime??


whatnameisnttaken098

5 minutes


Schwamopolis

Righteous.


usernombre_

Why were they waiting though?


Morethanafeeling62

Because bodybuilders are notoriously very regimented. One of my favorite minor details that they added to the show


fishbiscuit156

OH YEAH! DIG IT!


DrFujiwara

That's my favourite thing on that show. Guy barely says anything, not referred to a as macho man or anything but it's clearly the macho. Incidentally, whenever I'm writing test code and need some kind of individual, it's always macho man randy savage. Or mister dobalina, Mister bob dobalina.


Theblackswapper1

Oh. Yeah. That's a great point, yes.


evil_con_carne

Bill was built like a brick shithouse when he was younger and probably got some...special vitamins from the bodybuilders. 2 weeks *is* a ridiculous amount of time, but it's definitely easier to put on muscle again after losing it than building brand new muscles in the first place


Pocketsand16

Hank, as a salesman, not understanding sticker price


The_TGM

I mean the stuff that Hank sells is fixed price so it would make sense to think that would be the same for all types of sales. That said that episode uprooted plenty of established moments where we see hank haggling over price.


KewlPrime

Tom Hammond’s World Of Lies!


thunderling

Hank is so proud of being an honest salesman. He can't understand that anyone would choose to be a dishonest salesman. Think of all the times Buck Strickland has lied to Hank about their sales tactics.


AuctionPicker

Hank not understanding sticker price a few seasons after the episode where his original truck dies, and when he decides to buy the new truck he tells Bobby to act like he hates the truck, which could only have been for negotiating a better deal.


JeveSt0bs

The one time he didn’t buy a vehicle from Tom.


Seveyn

No backlash for the death of Trip.


MegaBearWithLazers

Cotton Hill, I don't think he's possible as presented physically. Also Bill not being jail for stealing a tank.


S3-000

Shin jelly


letsgetblitzed

I always wondered what the shin jelly was for if he didn't have shins


CrazyQuickDraw

To be fair, the doctors did say he would never walk again. And he kicked that doctor square in the ass. Miracles do happen so it’s not impossible.


Friesenplatz

They took muh shins!!


MyCatsArePeople

At least he beat them all to death with a big piece of fatty


L33TROYJENK1NS

Doctors attach feet backwards on the ends of peoples thighs to act as a knee joint for prosthetics so it’s not that unreasonable but still unlikely especially with ww2 medicine


Zeidy388

The Mexican judge letting Peggy off the hook for kidnapping Lupe


sniper91

Of all the legal defenses I’ve seen on tv shows, “you can’t kidnap somebody if you don’t speak their language” is certainly one of them


EmmBee27

King of the Hill is, in my opinion, one of the shows ever made.


onixannon

I love how Hank initially treats it like she's a kid playing a game. "Ok Peggy, get your stuff". Because everyone knows that if you're arrested in Mexico it's not the same as being arrested in the real world.


hurst_

in reality they would have had to bribe the shit out of that judge


Dependent_Factor_982

Peggy's teaching awards


WelpWelp1

Escuchame!??


layne909

Ouch


Little_Plankton4001

I always assumed that school district didn't have or need many substitute teachers in the first place. While her "specialty" was Spanish, she probably subbed for every subject. That's how it was in my school. You would get the same subs for a bunch of different classes. So she had very little competition. She probably won solely based on saying yes every time they called.


PillDicklesfor20

Escuchame!


zachrg

There is a (deep dive) fan theory that the awards are delusions that she never actually received.


Dependent_Factor_982

She received at least one under "Mrs Hank hill' when she piggybacked off his teaching abilities


KittyMonkTheYoutuber

I thought the theory was Peggy came up with the award idea herself. I feel like most subs at Tom Landry do what 98% of subs often do irl: just put on a movie or give out busy work. Peggy is so desperate to prove she can be a decent educator, even if she doesn’t have the right credentials, that she gives out actual lessons.


Cherry-ColaFunk

Meh, I felt like her aggressive campaigning made sense for why she's won so many. When you're voting you vote for the names you've heard. Peggy beats her name into the kids' heads. So when they have to write in a name they write the only name they can remember "Peggy Hill!" Because really, who cares about 'Substitute Teacher of the Year'?


bonerjuice9

I thought the theory she only got them because principal moss was doing Hank a favor for constantly bailing him out of trouble since they got out of high school


[deleted]

I just laughed hard enough to wake up my dogs


AuctionPicker

well they are voted on by the students


FunImprovement166

It was shown that Peggy really really campaigned annoyingly hard to win them. I could believe it


polaroidsquid

Hank getting tattooed on the back of his head and never knowing about it


hispanicsatthedisco

When Bobby and Connie rent a motel room while being 13 years old lol


CalmHabit3

And only holding hands in the room


MegaBearWithLazers

That's honestly believable, but the hotel would call the police.


Tibstheboob

Bobby being literally mind-controlled by a Queen Ant.


CumbersomeBond

I think you can kind of read that as Bobby playing pretend because he does knock it off when the ants crawl over him.


EvanTheNewbie

It feels more like an overactive imagination situation.


i_know_ur_n_expert

Bill running the shelter during the flood of Arlington.


crapwerk

My favorite part is when he played twinkle twinkle on the walkee talkee


LilHercules

When Pauly Shore was dressed like an armadillo and chased Hank and the old ladies around in a helicopter yelling “slop-sloppy jooooe” at them through a megaphone


onixannon

That's just an average spring break, really.


eagledog

Hank and Dale getting to Mexico, shopping, and getting back in time to vote on Election Day


triggoon

That Dale, somehow, has survived to middle age and lives in a regular house. He made and used his own dangerous chemicals for years (plus I believe he said he wasn’t licensed meaning he maybe dodging most safety laws). His delusions have almost gotten him injured/killed repeatedly. He spends money on the most random things. Essentially all this mixed together, I do not know how he is still alive but also living in a comfortable suburban neighborhood. I must add I love Dale but admittedly Dale is so out there lol


Occasionalcommentt

Hank being a popular salesman (part of boosters etc) in smallish town. Rumors- arsonist of megalomart, father burnt down the church, murdered Debbie, Arlen flooder, blew up the car lot, and the list goes on.


Acromulentkwyjibo

Idk sounds like a lot of reasons not be on his bad side hahaha.


Jameson18dude

Hate to break it to you, or happy to break it to you. My wife had a co-worker survive her parachute not opening. Her first skydive, wasn’t tandem (she took the extra 2 hour class to go solo). There are plenty of other people that have survived, https://kutv.com/amp/news/nation-world/its-a-miracle-woman-survives-skydiving-accident-in-canada-after-parachute-fails


Well-liked-assman

Woah! If you don’t mind me asking, What happened? Did she land in mud like Peggy? Was it a full body cast? White? Bed bath? Bed pan?


TheLegendTwoSeven

“She landed on a trampoline, and after a long series of bounces, she was completely fine.” …is the answer I’m hoping for.


GuyoFromOhio

Lol that's how it would have been done on Looney Tunes


Kaboomeow69

I've never heard to 16 people referred to as "plenty."


BillyGruffs710

Chuck Mangione living in a toilet paper fort in a mega-lo-mart


ChrisC1234

That's [plausible](https://www.oddee.com/item_99147.aspx).


applewacks

Peggy smuggling cocaine into the prison, Connie's cousin making a meth lab.


zachrg

Bobby finding a box of assorted chem equipment and being able to reconstruct it as a recognizable meth lab.


Trent_Lame

They even made her watch a video about smuggling things into the prison. It was called “Don’t Be A Mule” lol


CumbersomeBond

Peggy being a mule is believable I think. The fact that the heat is off after one meeting with the police is not. What small town Texas prosecutor or DA wouldn’t be all over something like this?


NativeMasshole

Bobby cooking crack at the science fair.


Haindelmers

Meth


lemonheadmeg

Having lived in Texas at some point… i could see it 😂 crack is a big deal (at least it was in DFW)


Gryphonpheonix

The couple times (probably more, as I'm just getting into Season 6 now) that Dale nearly got himself or others killed and apparently never suffered any legal consequences - nor did Hank, who seems to be directly responsible for instigating these things, lol. Namely: Barricading himself in a tower and almost getting sniped because someone thought his exterminator wand was a rifle. Attempting to murder the new president of the gun club, and then sending a bunch of clueless florists to chase an armed felon through the woods.


KittyMonkTheYoutuber

Ngl I love Dale’s character but I feel like he gets away with more than Peggy. I think it’s because Dale is supposed to be the wacky one, but I wish more people acknowledged just how much Dale endangers his family and friends.


Infinite-Piece-1752

THANK YOU *dale voice*


Gryphonpheonix

*Or DID IIIII?*


lizzledizzles

The tower thing is I assume a reference to the University of Texas shooting. Gun club attempted murder sounds very Texan as well lol.


rockwell136

And when Hank was shot by the sniper and the cops did nothing about it.


EmmBee27

God I've never heard that last one explained like that before but goddamn lol We never really get to see what happens there do we? Like damn hope those people weren't hurt because of Dale.


robertluke

Arlen seems like it’s located in varying locations of Texas, depending on the convenience of the episode. I wish the characters aged more. Bobby had like 7 Christmases when he was 13.


KittyMonkTheYoutuber

I read they did plan on having Bobby go through puberty but that meant getting rid of Pamela Adlon, so they just said he was a late bloomer. Granted there is the theory he is going through puberty, since his height seems to fluctuate in the later seasons, so maybe he had a growth spurt and just that.


True_to_you

The episode where Dale takes Hank to Mexico so they can't vote really stretched it for me. With Arlen playing Belton that puts them between Austin and Waco. That's a hell of a distance to Mexico and back in a day. Unless the bugabago has a secret under the hood.


-Akkoro-

I've never been able to ignore Hank having Bill's name tattooed on his head. Like, there's no way Hank didn't notice a bald spot, the healing and itching that comes with fresh tattoos (head tats itch like crazy) and how the fuck did nobody else see it? His barber never once brought it up? Really? It's not like Hank's hair is dark enough to cover it up completely, he also keeps his hair short, I just can't buy the fact that NOBODY took notice.


bigbadbillyd

Probably the episode where that meat packing industry owner has a mental break and tries to turn him and Luanne into a package of sausage links or something.


KittyMonkTheYoutuber

I heard the theory that the episode was their take on treehouse of horror so it’s non canon-ish. I do like the episode (mainly because I loved Michael Keaton) but I understand the criticisms. I only really disliked Peggy babying Luanne to the point of quitting her job for her and forcing her to go to the seminar where we meet trip.


CalmHabit3

No one being disgusted with Nancy for producing a child with John Redcorn that Dale thinks is his


I_might_be_weasel

I think that is disturbingly realistic. People being more concerned with appearances and not causing trouble than they are about someone getting used and fucked over.


guiltycitizen

J’ooooooohn Redcorn


Vaderchad

Pe'heeeeggy Hill


I_might_be_weasel

Hank got shot getting Dale out of that clock tower and walked away like nothing happen. Kevlar may not be enough to stop a rifle bullet, and even if does, he's going to be hurt had enough that he is going to be in debilitating pain and need to go to the hospital.


SashaDarkmane68

Bobby being controlled by an ant Also it is definitely possible to survive a sky diving fall, she'd be super injured but theres a good chance she'd survive


MontaEllisBurner

People mention Peggy surviving her fall but I find that a little more realistic than Peggy somehow being able to walk and not injuring herself after being immobilized for weeks because Cotton was yelling at her in a few days


Spiritual-You5255

Bill not going to jail for stealing a tank. Hank not understanding mark up. Buck being able to keep a business together with his "habits" on his own. Boomhauer not having a job or knowing about his at least one kid. None of John Redcorn's women learning about each other.


Infinite-Lawyer-3860

Boomenhauer did have a job tho… the secret one on the last episode (no spoilers)


oprahjimfrey

I thought he was an air traffic controller lol. Made his mumbling speech even more comical for that profession.


theeidiot

Yeah, too many plots/episodes that involved law enforcement for that not to come up.


mechanizedtinman

Well in the early ‘70s late ‘60s my Dad and his buddies (all active duty mind you) did in fact borrow a tank for a beer run… legendary, but not likely in the KOTH time frame. I’ll give you that. Totally with you on the sticker price, out of character for sure. Boomhauer gets the benefit of the doubt for me. I don’t think they ever eluded to their being a secret there… sort of figured they all knew well enough.


WhenLeavesFall

My uncle also took a tank for a beer run in the late '60s, early '70s while active duty. I wonder if it was the same tank.


mechanizedtinman

Location?


WhenLeavesFall

Korea


mechanizedtinman

Highly possible, was your uncle by chance air defense artillery, maybe a mechanic?


EmmBee27

They crush Khan's van and seemingly face no consequences from it.


gur0chan

Bill floating upside down across town with the weather balloon. His heart would’ve given out!


Particular-Point

it's believable that she survives the fall simply because she's Peggy Hill


AbdurazakHassan

Hank was a propane reseller and was shocked about the dealer markup for his car.


ReginaldRainbow

The speed at which Both Hank and bill make massive improvements in their physical fitness.


ItsAllSkewed

Bobby getting to eat a chip straight off the line.


AromaticSherbert

People have been known to survive falls from that high.. not likely, but possible.. therefore, realistic… as for Hank holding on to the pole, you might have a point there


soonerman32

Hank & Dale being able to drive to Mexico and back to Arlen within 12 hours before the polls close. Arlen is likely somewhere between Waco and Dallas...


Dakotasan

The fact Buck wasn’t arrested for Obstruction of Justice in High Steaks?


RepresentativeTie898

Bobby pretending to terminally ill to be in high school and win a concert never sat right with me.


lightningusagi

Also, how did he get away with not being in school for a week? He was obviously staying at the high school all day long, so why weren't his parents contacted to see if he was okay?


RepresentativeTie898

Especially since Carl Moss knew Hank personally


Trent_Lame

Hank is related to ZZ Top.


Little_Plankton4001

Bobby getting mind controlled by some fire ants.


RoswellCrash

Bobby becoming the servant of the queen ant.

Dale marrying Nancy


thaSavory_dude

hank fostering a deployed soldiers cat through an official Army program and then paying all of its vet bills instead of the Army never made sense to me


Lucarioismadpt2

Bill coming down with a case of explosions and not dying. Peggy skydiving, her equipment failing and her instructor bailing on her, and also living to make a full recovery.


cocorawks

Bill being in a men chorus, or being a men chorus that forces a person who doesn't live in texas to fly in from Europe to practice


stinky_garbage1739

I can believe this one tbh. Lots of people become fanatical about super pointless things, especially if they provide a sense of community.
