Mailbag: Maggie Stokes Fallin Marriage Car Cult Twin

You should know the drill by now. People email us questions or comments throughout the week, and we publish and respond to them here. At the end of the post, you guys then vote for the email you liked best. The winner receives a $25 Gift Certificate to Flint. In case you forgot, Flint is the new restaurant in the Colcord. Fabio ate there a couple of weeks ago after Emily Sutton turned down his awkward advances and declined to travel with him around the world while clinching his muscly arms. You know, because Emily Sutton loves me Oklahoma.

Anyway, here are this week’s emails:

Ok well Christina Fallin was married and divorced in 11 months the first time.  You guys got an over/under on how long this one will last?  I say 7 months, she finally comes out as a lesbian, and is married to a woman August of next year.

Let’s be fair. She didn’t get divorced. Her marriage was annulled. Therefore, Christina’s first marriage never really counted.

Okay, now we can stop being fair. I’d give this marriage at least 18 months. It’s Christina’s second marriage and Eric the Sushi Chef’s third, so they’ll feel some pressure to make it work for a while. In fact, if Eric can keep Christina away from his AA sponsor, it may just last a little longer.

CH 4 MADE A BIG MISTAKE LETTING JIM GARDNER GO.  HOPEFULLY HIS TALENTS WILL NOT GET LOST IN THE MEDIOCRE NEWS AT 9.  CH 9 COULD MAKE A BIG IMPROVEMENT BY GETTING OF GARY ENGLAND.  H’S OLD, TIRED, FORGETFUL AND DULL.

Wow, ALL CAPS and blasphemy in one email. That’s bold!

Anyway, kind of like how we feature a “Dean Blevins Memorial Tweet of the Week” in our Monday Morning Tweets, it may be time to incorporate a weekly “ALL CAPS EMAIL OF THE WEEK” for the mailbag. We probably get an email like this once week. They are usually typed in ALL CAPS, contain several typos and are sent to us by a woman named Judy, Linda or Kathy. They also typically come from an AOL or Hotmail account.

I’m a bit curious and kinda creeped out by these commercials for “The Key.” When I heard the radio ads I thought, “This kinda sounds like a cult.” And then when I saw the TV ads, I thought “This is a cult!” Please shed light. Thanks!

I have Sirius XM, a DVR and HBO. Therefore, I rarely have to suffer through local TV and radio commercials. Normally that’s a good thing, until I realize I’ve missed commercials like this:

Yep, lets drink the Kool-Aid, put on our jogging suits and prepare for the spaceship to give us a ride…or at least a little “life counseling” before we buy a 2005 Malibu with 18% interest and a remote ignition locking device.

Seriously, that’s the weirdest car commercial I’ve ever seen. It makes me want to hug the Diffee Kids and go on a road trip in search of Tom Park.

I did some research and it looks like the “mastermind” behind this bizarre concept is some ad agency from Colorado. I guess it proves anyone can smoke a lot of pot, chew some psychedelic mushrooms and successfully pitch a cheesy ad campaign to a used car dealership in Oklahoma City.

Also, isn’t this place the perfect target for some “In Your Corner” style investigative report? I’d love to see what valuable and accredited life services are taught by used car vultures in south Oklahoma City. They probably begin and end with “sign here.”

Subject: Gov. Fallin’s daughter marries again

I would never want to discourage moles from sending us news tips, but can you at least check the site before sending us something? This happens all the time! Read the site, people!

On that note, it is kind of irritating that the Tulsa World didn’t give us any credit for breaking the Christina Fallin marriage story. I know they didn’t have to do it, but it would have been cool. In the blog universe, it’s considered proper etiquette to recognize the source for a story with a link or hat tip. Then again, newspapers and blogs are totally different. Blogs continue to grow and rise in popularity, while newspapers continue to struggle and lose readers.

Will asks:

Just happened to be poking around the KOCO webpage and I noticed that morning anchor Maggie Stokes’ bio says that she has an identical twin sister. Hmmmmmmm.

Sorry, had to write that again. Yes, we are very aware that Maggie Stokes has a twin. In fact, we posted a picture of that twin in our countdown of the “20 Hottest Women in the OKC Media.” Somehow, Maggie was ranked #13. How in the world she ranked that low still haunts me.

Anyway, now that people know Maggie has a twin, I’m going to type some things to help with our search engine rankings. Here we go: Maggie Stokes; Maggie Stokes Twin; Maggie Stokes Twin Sister; Maggie Stokes Twin Sister Bubble Bath; Maggie Stokes Tw …eh, we’ll just leave it at that. That should catch the all the Googlebots and pervs.

Vote!

  1. Doesn’t The Key guy remind you of David Koresh’s long lost brother or something?? Definitely creepy.

  2. None of the Above.
    A very weak list of emails. I say you let the Flint Coupon ride until next week…

  3. So The Key offers me a place to blow off steam? I’m not sure they know what my preferred method of blowing off steam is. It would involve a Aluminium Baseball Bat and a bunch of used cars.

    • reminds me of the shoot em up scene from the movie “used cars”….Marshall Lucky says “now that’s just too damn high!”

    • They have that there. They call it the rage cage. They used to give out T-shirts for free hugs. Hilarious!

    • Hey Diesel, I actuall heard a “KEY” commercial that said you could beat up/destroy an old junker car while you were there on their “LOT”…. seriously… take your bat… then let us know if it is legit.

  4. The guy that owns The Key is from Midwest City (David) and owns a percentage of Express Credit Auto.His partner (Shawn) in the business tried to screw him over and cut him out of his share of Express but it didn’t work. (Imagine that- shady car dealers). The Key was formerly called Guaranteed Auto Credit, No Credit Needed, and Shields Auto Mall. Both guys are extremely wealthy and David has ties to people that cause you to have a really bad day.
    The guy from the ad agency from Colorado is probably a looney bird and is the reason behind the re-branding of the auto dealership.
    Probably some of the worst ads on TV right now. I get sick every time I turn on the TV and see them knowing somebody somewhere is buying a car at The Key or Express Credit Auto and getting a car with a huge down payment, and astronomical interest rate (21%). Good story. Dig deeper and you would have a story about Davids brothers in the penitentiary, and Shawn getting arrested on drug violations. Gotta love folks from Midwest City and Choctaw.

    • That was a pretty interesting post until you got to the last sentence. I’m not from Midwest City or Choctaw, but I can say you do not deserve to be called a goober.
