On one of the final episodes of King of the Hill, Boomerhaur's occupation, which was never previously discussed (other than being a ladies' man who sometimes had benefactors) was possibly revealed as being a Texas Ranger.
Specifically, it showed his wallet, with a Texas Ranger badge.
Was he really a Texas Ranger though, or was this just something he used to get ladies?
It seemed to me like he couldn't be a Texas Ranger for several reasons:
- His trademark near-incomprehensible way of speaking would make it difficult or impossible for him to deal with either citizens or suspects profesionally
- He did a number of illegal things with Hank, Dale, and Bill (though admittedly law enforcement employees break the law all the time, so this is a weak point)
- There were a number of times when he and the guys needed law enforcement, like when they were being terrorized by a former NFL player who the cops wouldn't arrest due to his star power, but he never showed his badge or said he was a Ranger
- He was involuntarily committed to an insane asylum for wandering the street in his underwear and seeming to have threatened a cop
