      I always liked Texas.

      Arise, Mexicans, demand our land back from the Yanquis who stole it on an off day for President Santa Anna.

      Pity you didn’t (couldn’t?) copy the mouseover/alt= text as well. It is often, as here, the most amusing part of an xkcd strip.

      Mike Cunningham,

      If certain interpretations of quantum physics are correct somewhere there is a universe in which Mexico never lost Texas. In that alternate universe, poor Mexicans wade across the Red River to reach the economic promised land of Oklahoma.

      The mouseover text referred to above is reproduced below:

      “Normally, the Shuttle can't quite safely reach the orbital inclination required to pass over both those points from a Canaveral launch, but this is an alternate history in which either it launches from Vandenberg or everyone hates the Outer Banks.”

      Wade is correct, the river is usually pretty low in my stretch (from Wichita Falls, 30 minutes from the border). In fact, they might be wading through some dangerous mud in this alternate universe as the riverbank is notorious for quicksand.
