By now I’m sure you’ve heard about that crazy lady in Noble who thought it was okay to call the girls at Noble High “skanks.” If not, let me get you up to speed. Ronda “Mama Bear” Bass is 85% hairdo and 15% concerned about what other schools are saying about the Noble High girls. Please note, she is also 100% the superintendent you don’t want around your kids.
According to KFOR.com:
Bass says she’s very protective of her students and after she saw what some of the girls were wearing she decided to sit them down at the end of the day.
“The first question I asked was how many of you in here believe that there are female students on the campus today that are dressed completely inappropriate,” says Bass. “Most of their hands went up.”
But that’s not what senior Stephanie Stewart remembers.
Stewart says, “The first sentence was, ‘Have y’all ever seen any ‘skanks’ around this school’. Around the end she said, ‘I don’t want to see anyone’s ass hanging out of their shorts.”
We asked Bass if those words were ever used.
“I knew that students from other towns were calling our girls really negative names. The message I wanted to send to them was I don’t want them to be called those names,” says Bass. “I want us to be known as the classy lady Bears.”
So this morning Bass followed up, unannounced.
According to Stephanie she asked just the girls to stand up while she did a dress code check, even asking some of the girls to bend over.
Stephanie was singled out because in Bass’ opinion her dress was too short.
Bass says, “If you’re not comfortable with bending over, we might have a problem.”
Happy Monday, everyone! Raise your hand if you had a Sunday fun day. Now, put on your sunglasses inside your office and yell at your coworkers to not talk so loud if you had a Sunday too much fun day. Just know that it’s going to be 70 times worse next weekend. I mean, we have college football and Labor Day. May as well go buy some activated charcoal, aspirin, and Gatorade now so you have it ready and waiting. But before you do that, check out these tweets, y’all.
As always, they’re after the jump.
We had quite a week last week, didn’t we? (I want you to imagine me in a Mister Rogers sweater, sympathetically looking at you as you read this.) We lost Robin Williams to suicide. An officer shot a man in Ferguson, Missouri, which was followed by protests and very oppressive police action. Everyone and their brother took the damn ice bucket challenge. It was a very busy week on social media. And in times like that, I think it’s important to laugh. So, I won’t focus on the bad things that happened and the tweets they inspired. Instead, let’s look at the funny stuff. (Now, imagine me morphing back into a non-Mr. Rogers sort of person that you generally imagine me to be.)
Besides, you guys, Emily Sutton live tweeted Into the Storm and two food truck apps got into a Twitter spat. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover!
As always, the tweets are after the jump!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that more often than not, Sundays are spent eating ridiculously large steaks at my parents’ house. As a person who has recently renounced chicken altogether, I’m really enjoying my new “all red” diet. And while I’m not above hitting up Cimarron Steakhouse for their lunch special, I like to think that I generally make good decisions regarding the meat I purchase.
But not all purveyors of flesh are on the level, as we’re learning from this recent story on NewsOK.com:
Thank God it’s Monday, am I right? You made it through another weekend and here we are again. I know the day is shaping up to be terrible, but just remember that you can probably find a plate of affordable cheese fries at lunch to make you feel better, and I’ve got a hot serving of OKC social media schadenfreude just waiting for you. Join me as we collectively gird our loins for the week ahead by laughing at the local tweeps. I’ve collected the best tweets from the past week (or at least the ones that caught my eye) and put them right here so you’ll have something to read and laugh at while you ignore the incoming stream of emails and meeting invitations in your Outlook inbox.
As always, they’re right here after the jump!
