Tuesday Morning Tweets

Good morning and happy Tuesday that feels like a Monday, everyone! With any luck, you enjoyed a well-deserved day off. Ironically, though, if you happen to be in a career for which the Labor Day holiday was initially created, you probably had to work. Is that irony, or the new American dream? Who knows? What I do know is that I hope you at least got to sit down and relax and enjoy a beer. Or, maybe hit the lake one last time, if you’re the lake type. If you’re like me, then your day was spent recovering from all the terrible junk you ate during the OU game. Because they don’t make Tums or Zantac strong enough to handle the chili cheese nachos, wings, and three-meat pizza multi-day heartburn I’ve got going on here.

Anyway, as always, I’ve gathered up the best tweets from the previous week. Check them out after the jump!

The OK Blue Bell factory is making ice cream again

In life, there are few constants. You can’t count on much, but what you can always count on is food. It’s always there for you. It’s a better friend than anyone you know. Food doesn’t judge you when you’ve had a rough day and all you want is some dang cheese fries to cheer you up. Food is always there when you need something to let you know that everything is going to be okay. At least, I thought food would always be there.

If you know me at all, then you know one of my hobbies is to stop at a 7-Eleven and purchase a pint of Blue Bell ice cream. (Red velvet and blackberry cobbler are my favorites because I’m one of those weirdos who isn’t that into chocolate.) But I haven’t been able to do that for a long time since Blue Bell recalled their ice creams and shut down production. But according to KFOR.com, I should be able to take up my old hobby again:

Drunk woman uses 12-year-old boy as designated driver

Thank goodness for Uber, you guys. I like living in a world where if I’ve maybe had one too many drinks at dinner, I can just hit a couple of buttons on my smart phone and arrive home relatively safely. And more importantly, I like know that other people who may have had too much to drink at dinner also have this option. The more drunk drivers that are kept off the roads, the better.

And if you aren’t a fan of Uber, at least have a designated driver. Just, you know, make sure that your designated driver is 1.) sober, and 2.) of legal driving age. Otherwise, you may run into an issue. According to KFOR.com:

Monday Morning Tweets

Good morning and happy Monday, fellow Oklahomans. I hope your weekend was amazing and that you’re ready to tackle another week. If you think you may not make it, just know that football starts this weekend so your life will finally have meaning again. Can I get an amen for tailgating, crock pots full of queso, and cheering for your team? These are glorious times. And until football, well, I’ve got some of the very best tweets in one place for you to enjoy!

As always, you can check out the tweets after the jump!

Two inmates tried to pull an Andy Dufresne at the OK County Jail

If it comes down to it, I hope I die early on in the zombie apocalypse. I’m not a doomsday prepper, nor do I possess any sort of survival instinct. In fact, there is barely enough food in my house to sustain me for a week, let alone the end of the civilized world. Couple that with the fact that I’m not very handy with any weapons, and well, you can see that I’m meant for a softer existence. And is being a zombie really that bad after all?

Anyway, two inmates at the Oklahoma County Jail do not share my distaste for survivalism. In fact, they are basically the two people you want on your team when the world ends. Why? Well, they came pretty close to busting out of their cell by using crude tools and a paste made out of oatmeal. According to KFOR.com:
