At least Sonic seems to care about public schools..

limeades for learning

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Sonic will never let you down. Sure, I’ve been lobbying for them to create a fried pie for a long time and they still haven’t. (How hard can it be, Sonic? Taco Bell has the caramel apple empanada, and that is LIFE CHANGING. The cinnasnacks with cream cheese frosting are basically tiny fried pies too. Come on, Sonic. Make 2016 the year of the fried pie.) But regardless of the lack of fried pies, at least there is still fried cheese. Sonic is there for you.

And another cool thing that Sonic does (aside from the cookie dough blast) is that they are basically giving schools money that the state doesn’t want to give. According to KFOR.com:

Monday Morning Tweets

Good morning and happy Monday everyone. I hope this last Monday of September proves to be a good one for you. For me, it was pretty hard to get out of bed. But that could be because I spent all Sunday celebrating birthdays and family time. Can I just say that all Sundays are the busiest days ever? But don’t let that deter you if you want to write MMT. I mean, you can probably manage your Sunday fun days better than me. If you’re interested in writing MMT, don’t forget to email TheLostOgle@gmail.com. And if you already contacted us, sit tight. We’ll be getting back to you soon!

Anyway, as always, I’ve gathered up all the tweets from last week and put them all in one place. Check them out after the jump!

Some dude stole a $2,800 bottle of cognac

Like any fan of the show, Parks and Rec, I am oft wont to treat myself. It’s moderately embarrassing to think about how many fine leather goods I’ve purchased over the past month, but whatever. You only live once, and what else would I do with the money anyway? Put it in savings? That’s boring. Besides, that’s kind of the point of treating yourself, you know, spending your money on you.

However, there are those who like to treat themselves without actually having the money. And no, I’m not referring to people who put everything on credit cards. According to KOCO.com:

They’re filming a biopic in Oklahoma about that evil abortion doctor

Kermit Gosnell biopic

There’s a new movie being filmed in Oklahoma! This time it’s a biopic about Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell. Sounds fun, doesn’t it?

In case the name doesn’t ring any bells, Kermit Gosnell was convicted in 2013 of first degree murder of three infants, involuntary manslaughter of one of his adult patients, 21 felony counts of illegal late-term abortion, and 211 counts of violating the 24-hour informed consent law. I won’t go into detail about the atrocities he committed. You can look those up on your own. His medical practice was a complete fraud. He preyed on vulnerable women who had no money and no options. Many of his patients were immigrants without access to legitimate care.

Here’s a description of the film by BAM at NewsOK.com:

“Gosnell” is based on the true story of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor in Philadelphia who was convicted of murder in 2013 based on his unlawful practices during abortion procedures which resulted in multiple deaths. Described by Terry Moran, co-anchor of ABC’s Nightline, as “America’s most successful serial killer,” Gosnell is suspected of killing hundreds, perhaps thousands, during his practice, which he ran for nearly 30 years. The film tells the story of the detectives and prosecutors who finally brought Gosnell to justice.

The film has already raised over $2 million dollars via Indiegogo, after being blocked by KickStarter for violating community guidelines. Reading the Indiegogo page makes it obvious that these filmmakers aren’t here to shed light on a story that didn’t receive enough media coverage. Much like us, they’re here with a political axe to grind!

So while this little project is currently filming in my state, I would like to ask a few questions about the movie:

Monday Morning Tweets

Good morning and happy Monday, everyone. Well, here we are again. It’s another Monday and if you’re like me, the weekend was too short and you need like 3 more days to get all the stuff done you said you’d do over the weekend. Couple that with the indigestion you’re still feeling from your state fair indian taco fact checking mission (Louis wasn’t wrong, was he?) and it’s gonna be a rough day. Luckily you for you, I come bearing the healing power of tweets.

We’ve been talking about this for awhile, but it’s time for some fresh blood up in this column. Tony did it for 3 years, and I’ve done it for like almost 3 years. It’s time that I passed the MMT baton.

So, we want to know if you want to write MMT. Do you have what it takes to watch tweets all week long and then write about them while you slowly sober up from your Sunday fun day at 9 pm? Do you have the intestinal fortitude to have people tweet at you all week about how they really want to make MMT? Can you pick one Abigail Ogle tweet at random each week? If you think you have what it takes, send an email to TheLostOgle@gmail.com. Who knows? You could be the next big TLO cyber bully!

Anyway, until then, I’ve gathered up the best tweets from the week before and put them all in one post. Please enjoy! Check them out after the jump!
