I'd say that is highly unlikely - there is not even a match for that phrase.

It does say this about Lufkin, Texas:

Lufkin is served by two hospitals, the Memorial Medical Center at Lufkin, which includes the Arthur Temple Sr. Regional Cancer Center, and Woodlands Heights Medical Center.

The space shuttle Columbia crashed in the Lufkin area.

Lufkin is well known for its high school football team, the Lufkin Panthers.

Here is link to wikipedia where I found it.

Check out what it says now about a certain poster on here! Did not know you could do that on wikipedia

Notice the typo "a expert gambler"

"a"???

How about "an" expert. They obviously didn't teach that at Aunt Mama's institute of mediocre learning in Rivercrest.

I like the this version better...

That entry is a tad bit harsh, wide. It'd be best for the person who submitted that entry to erase it.
