Hot Girl Friday: Marla Morgan

marla morgan

We’ve received a bunch of great emails since we started this website in 2007. Perhaps none of them have been better than this gem that Mike Morgan sent us back in June 2011 before he hated us:

Subject: Damn, it’s hot!

Hello LostOgle, as a token of appreciation for the Mike Morgan drinking game ( very clever ) , here is a picture of Marla Morgan, former runner up Miss rodeo USA from bristow, ok, cooling off during a recent hot OKC evening. We hope you approve, May u continue to be this lucky….

Since that first contact, we’ve had an up and down email friendship with Mike and his wife Marla. The highlights include Marla emailing us pics of phallic Roman road signs from the couple’s Mediterranean vacation, and this gem of Marla posing in a swimsuit in front of a muscle car while holding a Wile E. Coyote doll. The low point was when Mike angrily accused us of censorship and a failure to show balls, and threatened to use the evil powers he learned from the dark sith weatherlord Wayne Shattuck to attack Ogle Manor with a microburst.

Out of appreciation for all the good times and material the Morgan’s have provided us, I thought we should chronicle and post all the pics of Marla we’ve obtained over the years. She’s our Hot Girl Friday, and definitely something Mike Morgan doesn’t have to apologize for.

Mike Morgan apologizes for “insensitive” remark about Muslim prayer

mike morgan apology

Thursday, September 18th, 2014 was not the best day for the KFOR Weather Team.

Emily Sutton started the day by accidentally said a bad word during the weather forecast, proving that even adorable little weather princesses can have a shitty morning:

At least she didn’t go to Frontier Shitty.

Not to be outdone, Mike Morgan showed his young apprentice how to really say something bad during that night’s 6pm newscast. Following a serious report about how Oklahoma Muslims are trying to overcome negative stereotypes, prejudices, death threats and general attacks on their religion, Mike Morgan decided to lighten the mood by comparing an Islamic prayer ceremony to a tornado drill.

Here’s the video:

Friday Night in the Big Town: Improv, Heard on Hurd and Fairy Fun

The showdown is upon us.

The battle between good and evil takes place this Sunday at 7 p.m. outside the Civic Center and it is free of charge. The infamous “black mass”  faces off against local politicians, clergy and protesters in a ‘no holds barred’ screamfest. Well, I expect one side to scream while the other laughs.

Roman Catholic Archbishop Paul S. Coakley created the ferver by calling attention to the event in fantastic fashion and then suing the group for possessing a consecrated Host, stating that it is owned by the Catholic Church. Gov. Fallin condemned the event, but “shockingly” blamed the wrong satanists, if by “shockingly” you mean “expectedly.” From there the fever grew hotter among the local 700-Clubbers, while the rest of us lived life, ate food and watched Netflix.

Coakley is now worried about possible confrontations between the protesters and satanists. Apparently, the city of Oklahoma City has received threats vowing to block entrances and will have police monitoring the crowds. Those entering the theatre will be searched for weapons. Also, two police officers will attend the black mass to protect the satanists.

Maybe those who are up in arms over the black mass should ask themselves “who is the real threat?”, but that would involve introspection, and of course they are perfect.

Here is your Friday Night in the Big Town.

This dude has a weird OK Cupid pic…

Taylor Caraway

There are two types of weirdos. You have weird weirdos (Joe Exotic or The Video Vigilante) who are really weird and annoying, and then you have cool weirdos (like Reed Timmer or Biker Fox) that you wouldn’t mind being friends with.

I’m pretty sure the guy pictured above, Taylor Caraway, falls in the cool weirdo category. Earlier this week, the Oklahoma City man achieved overnight internet fame when Reddit and then The Huffington Post picked up on his strange OK Cupid profile image.

Here’s his story via The Huffington Post:

This is Taylor Caraway’s OkCupid profile pic. It blew up Reddit earlier this week because — well, just take look at it — why wouldn’t it blow up on Reddit?…

In an email interview with The Huffington Post, Taylor told us he believes he’s in the “top-ish tier of OkCupid success” — meaning, “I probably get a response to around 80 percent of my first messages.”

“My profile and my pictures are very polarizing, so they’re not for everyone — and that’s what I like about them,” he said.

As popular as the photo was on Reddit, the 32-year-old realizes that crazy ladybug prints from Hobby Lobby aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. And he definitely tends to have more success with the photo when he ventures outside of his hometown of Oklahoma City.

“When I travel, I get a lot better reactions to that picture and some of the other crazy ones,” he said. “A lot of people think the picture is creepy, and I’ll be the first to admit it definitely has a strange-ish vibe to it. That just makes me laugh, though. And I have had one or two women tell me they love me just based off the pictures — true story.”

So what’s Taylor’s best tip for being successful on online dating sites?

“Don’t take the whole thing too seriously. I think a lot of people (especially men) tend to way overanalyze every minute detail of the messages they send,” he said. “Just keep things lighthearted. Dating should be fun. If you’re stressing about it, you’re doing it wrong.”

And in case you’re wondering, Taylor is still single and no, he doesn’t wear that ladybug shirt on dates. (Sorry, ladies.)

Uhm, if his profile pic is so cool and popular, why’s he’s still single? I think I know the answer.

Through the vast reaches of the Ogle Mole Network, I was able to get in touch with a cute girl who actually went on a date with this guy. After some initial hesitation, here’s what she had to say:

Labor Commish Mark Costello wrote a ridiculous, hypocritical op-ed about the Black Mass…

On Tuesday, Oklahoma Labor Commissioner Mark Costello – pictured above with his goofy daughter Fake Miss Oklahoma – penned an op-ed for the Journal Record where he (yawn) criticized the “controversial” satanic black mass that’s scheduled to take place at the Civic Center this Saturday. I’m not sure what that has to do with labor, but whatever, he’s an elected official with a daughter who moonlights as a legitimate pageant champion, so his opinion really matters.

In his column, Costello tries to compare the satanic event that’s parodying a powerful religion to the Klu Klux Klan burning crosses when a Catholic presidential candidate visited Tulsa in the 1920s. Because you know, those two things are obviously connected in some way. It’s why I always get “The Life of Brian” confused with “Mississippi Burning.”

Via The Journal Record:

In 1928, the first Roman Catholic ever nominated for president, Gov. Al Smith of New York, came to campaign in Oklahoma at the height of the Ku Klux Klan’s power. Smith was greeted with numerous burning crosses during the night as his train rolled across the state. When Smith spoke to a rally in Oklahoma City, the KKK burned more crosses outside of the stadium where his campaign rally was held, inciting hatred and fomenting violence. Some of Smith’s relatives were listening to radio broadcasts of the proceedings and said they believed the atmosphere was so volatile that “they expected a bullet, expected to hear a gun go off.”

Smith then delivered what many consider to be the most courageous speech ever given by a presidential nominee. In it he said, “There is no greater mockery in the world today than the burning of the cross by these people who are spreading this propaganda … (the symbol of) the Christ they are supposed to adore… . To inject bigotry, hatred, intolerance and un-American sectarian division into a campaign … . Nothing could be so contradictory of our whole history.”

As a child in 1966, I remember leaflets were dropped by an airplane over Bartlesville that read, “Don’t vote for Dewey Bartlett. He is a Roman Catholic.” The fair-minded voters of Oklahoma overcame the religious prejudices and elected the best person for the job – Bartlett, our first Catholic governor.

Okay, nothing wrong with that. Although I’m not sure why he omitted the Klan’s extreme racist, anti-semitic, homophobic views, or any of the sickening atrocities they’ve committed towards (Christian) African-Americans over the years, I get it. Costello’s setting the stage for his opinion. Plus, you can’t drive down NW Expressway without seeing those darn Satanists burning crosses.

Here’s the rest of the piece. Please place the palm of your hand directly in front of your face and prepare for the inevitable:
