Survival of the Fittest: Channel 25 will do anything for ratings

funny-evolution-man-trap

As we know, the religion of evolution is a controversial topic in Oklahoma. And it should be. The easy to prove wrong theory is full of lies, deception and makes no sense at all. Do you really believe humans evolved from apes that saw a black monolith in front of cave millions of years ago? Yeah right.

Channel 25 protected innocent Oklahomans from this blasphemous scientific “theory” forced upon us by evil liberal scientists with an agenda by editing out a brief mention of human evolution during Sunday night’s broadcast of Cosmos. By “editing out,” I mean they replaced his ludicrous beliefs with a promo for the Fox 25 News at 9.

From The Raw Story:

In what appeared to be an editing error, a Fox affiliate in Oklahoma managed to remove the only mention of evolution from Sunday night’s Cosmos science documentary by cutting only 15 seconds from the broadcast.

The much-anticipated reboot of Carl Sagan’s legendary Cosmos premiered on Sunday with an overview of the history of the Universe, from the Big Bang to the advent of humans.

It wasn’t until the last 10 minutes of the show that host Neil deGrasse Tyson hinted at human evolution…

For viewers of KOKH-TV in Oklahoma City, that 15 second paragraph was replaced by an awkwardly-inserted commercial for the evening news.

First of all, I apologize for my intro. I thought I was ghostwriting a newspaper column for science-hating Oklahoma legislator Josh Breechen! You see, I was trying to impress his hot wife and, well, it won’t happen again. My bad.

Here’s a clip of the incident. It is kind of funny / awkward:

Ogle Madness VII: Play-In Game 3 & 4

That’s Lauren Richardson. Remember her? She was the champion of our first Ogle Madness. That’s incredibly dated and weird and makes me want to go to Braum’s and have an ice cream cone.

This is the part where I tell you there’s still time to enter our bracket challenge. Email your pick to win it all to OgleMadness@gmail.com. If you select the winner, you may win a dinner for eight to LOCAL.

Here are the match-ups for our second batch of play-in games:

The owner of The Key is building a castle in Edmond…

Last night, Channel 9 reported that the largest house in the US may soon be constructed in Northeast Edmond. It’s being built by the guy who owns The Key car dealerships. Or better yet, the Key chain of car dealerships. You know, like key chain? Get it? Haha!

From News 9:

There are plans to build the country’s largest single family residence in northeast Edmond.

Last year, the Edmond Planning Commission was asked to give approval to a mega mansion on the northwest corner of Sorghum Mill Road and Westminster Road.

“It’s truly a castle,” says Bob Schiermeyer, who saw the first renderings late last year and tells News 9 the plans call for a draw bridge and spires that reach 90 feet.

Schiermeyer says original plans called for a home that was around 75,000 square feet, but the home’s architect says the home has now grown to 92,650 square feet. That architect says, if completed, the castle home will be the largest single family residence in the U.S.

The City of Edmond says the home is the idea of David Frayer, the owner of the Key Auto Group.

Okay, I’m really sorry about the whole key chain thing above. It was awful, but keep in mind the guy is building a 92,650 square foot castle. I have enough enemies in town. The last thing I want to do is piss off a used car dealer who has a dungeon.

Also, since he likes to throw his money around on ridiculous extravagant things like fucking castles, maybe he’ll want to buy this website someday. Actually, that’s a weak excuse. You don’t have to be rich to buy The Lost Ogle. Hell, you don’t even need good credit. If you have a job and $99, we can get you in this website today. Come see us!

Here’s a rendering of the castle.

Let the madness begin!

For the 7th year in a row, we are proud to bring you Ogle Madness – Oklahoma’s premier 68 person, place, and thing “celebrity” tournament.

If you’re new to the show, this is how Ogle Madness works:

• We take 68 notable (and not so notable) Oklahoma celebrities and place them in an NCAA Tournament style tournament.

• Each day, we post match-ups on the site. Readers then vote for their favorite. The person / place / thing with the most votes advances. The loser is eliminated and is forced to go to Mazzio’s with Regular Jim Traber or read a Jenni Carlson column one one-sentence paragraph at a time.

• At the end of the day, we crown a champion. Last year, Emily Sutton rolled through the field like debarker for her 2nd consecutive Ogle Madness championship. Can she possibly three-peat?

Anyway, the fun gets started tomorrow with our four play-in games. Check out this year’s bracket (and the prize for our bracket challenge) after the jump:
