Monday Morning Tweets

Happy Monday, and welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Tweets. It’s a special occasion, as today is Groundhog Day. That’s right! Today we find out if spring is on the way, or if we see six more weeks of winter. I’m not entirely sure what rodents have to do with the changing of seasons, but then again, I didn’t go to school to be a meteorologist. Pawncetawny Panxsutawny Pawnxsuitany Punxsutawney Phil probably has the same meteorological credentials as Aaron Tuttle, only that cute little rodent has never taken selfies of his abs or his tears. So he’s probably more trustworthy than some folks we have on the local scene.

Anyway, all that is to say that I have this week’s tweets all gathered up and ready for you. You can catch them, as always, right after the jump!

The Norman Police Department released a weird recruitment video…

Norman PD is hiring

Norman is really the city that has it all. Sure, it’s full of young 20-somethings the majority of the year who make for long wait times when you want to get a table at a restaurant, or purchase one measly item at Target. Also, driving on Lindsey isn’t a thing that I do AT ALL from the months of August to May. But overall, the city is super chill. That’s something I really appreciate. Also, have you seen all the cool downtown art lately? Norman is the place to be.

But what if you live outside the Norman area and you’re looking for a job so you can officially relocate? Well, look no further. The Norman Police Department is totally hiring. In case you needed further proof that Norman was the coolest city in the OKC Metro, I’d like to submit for your approval a recruitment video released by the Norman Police Department:

Someone in Bartlesville stole a dinosaur

I, like every kid who grew up in the 1990s have thought way too much about dinosaurs because I saw Jurassic Park one too many times. (At the Super Saver Cinema on NW Expressway and 63rd, no less.) Based upon the viewings of that film, as well as knowledge of myself and my personality, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I would’ve fared about as well as the lawyer who got eaten right off the toilet if I were to ever come across a dinosaur. Suffice it to say that I have no desire to ever see any sort of prehistoric lizard.

But, I’m afraid I have to report that not only are there people out there who like dinosaurs, there are also people who steal them. According to KOCO.com:

There’s a cemetery that uses GPS to find graves

Reflection Pointe Gardens

Generally, I try not to think about social customs and institutions that have existed for hundreds of years because regardless of how stupid they are, I know I can’t end them. That’s one of the main things I took from my undergrad sociology class—that you can’t end institutions. (That, and the origination of institutions is in the reciprocity of typifications. Whatever that means.)

Anyway, I’ve refused to let myself think about how inefficient and poorly designed cemeteries are because they’re never going to change. Or so I thought. It would appear that someone has really thought about how you lay your nana to rest, and they’ve found a way more efficient and technologically sound way of maintaining her final place of rest.

Monday Morning Tweets

Good morning and happy Monday to everyone. Did you know that this is the last week of January? What in the actual Hell happened to this month? Time really flies when you’re completely ignoring your New Year’s resolutions. (That’s right. I’ve worked out so little this month. Also, eating healthy is lame.) Anyway, it looks like we have a crazy warm week ahead of us. Make sure you take advantage of the awesome weather. (I’m pretty sure Aaron Tuttle has been saying that we’re in for a snowmageddon. But how much can you trust a dude who takes Myspace-style ab selfies? You can’t.)

Anyway, as always I’ve collected the tweets from the past week for your enjoyment. So, grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit back, relax, and enjoy. As always, this week’s tweets are after the jump.
