Taco Bell is test marketing a new barfy menu item in OKC…

Breakfast-Quesarito

Oklahoma City is the test market for some processed cheese-infested monstrosity called the the Breakfast Quesarito. It’s the little brother of the regular Quesarito, which has been test marketed in OKC since January. According to sources, it’s the type of item you order only when you’ve smoked pot and been day drinking and want to have nightmares.

From Time:

A couple months after rolling out its first ever breakfast menu, Taco Bell is testing a brand new addition to its morning offerings.

The Breakfast Quesarito is an egg-and-cheese breakfast burrito wrapped inside a grilled cheese quesadilla, instead of a regular tortilla. Customers can add sausage or bacon for $1.99 and steak for $2.79.

The Breakfast Quesarito is currently only available at Taco Bell restaurants in Oklahoma City.

If you can stomach it, take a look at a non-photoshopped pic of the real thing via Grub Grade:

Someone left a m4m Missed Connection for me on Craigslist…

Welcome back.

If you’re anything like me, your mind checks out the three or four days before a holiday weekend starts and doesn’t return back to normal until you’ve spent a couple of days mindlessly wasting away in your office or cubicle drinking coffee and surfing the Internet. Unless, of course, you’re poor, a hard worker and/or work in the service industry. That means you probably had to work over the weekend. If so, happy Tuesday.

Anyway, I was treated to something pretty cool over the break. Someone let me know there’s a m4m Missed Connection for me on Craigslist.

The Oklahoma Legislature still hates science…

Yesterday, we let you know that the Green family from Hobby Lobby is using their wealth, power and influence to bypass Oklahoma open meeting laws and force their proselytizing bible curriculum on the Mustang school district.

Well, it looks like Hobby Lobby aren’t the only ones who enjoy proselytizing. Our legislature likes to do it in their own unique way, too. The difference is that instead of inserting the bible into school curriculum, they go the opposite route and try to remove science from the classroom.

Via the National Center for Science Education:

Hobby Lobby folks tried to sneak through the Mustang bible curriculum…

7/2010-OKLAHOMA CITY-DAVID GREEN AT HOBBY LOBY HEADQUARTERS

It looks like love, laughter and friends are only welcome when they’re spending money at your chain of arts and crafts stores.

The AP has learned the Mustang School Board and its superintendent had secretive, back channel meetings with Hobby Lobby’s Steve Green just hours before approving the school district’s new controversial bible curriculum.

Since the meetings were about the curriculum  – and not private tutorials on how to make ugly wreaths – they seem to have violated the state’s open meeting laws.

From an AP story that doesn’t appear anywhere in The Oklahoman:

Oklahoma needs to clear its Internet search history…

A few days ago, the real estate clickbaiting website Estately published a list of what each state googles more than any other any other state. Sound dumb, pointless, non-scientific and confusing? Here’s the explanation:

America’s fifty states have a lot in common, but if their internet search histories are any indication they also have significant differences. Estately ran hundreds of search queries through Google Trends to determine which words, terms, and questions each state was searching for more than any other. The results ranged from mildly amusing to completely disturbing. No doubt this information will come in handy for anyone trying to decide which state they want to buy a home in, especially for those curious how their potential neighbors spend their time online. The results on the map above are just the tip of the online search iceberg.

Yeah right, like someone’s really going to take this stupid study into consideration when they’re trying to figure out which state they want to move to. Of course, maybe they should. Check out Texas:

If you’ve ever pulled a Gravy Train or Chelsea and hooked up with someone during OU / Texas weekend, I apologize for the paranoia we just caused. I’m sure the itching was just a one time thing. Our neighbors in Kansas also have hypochondriac search tendencies:

kansas hoof and mouth

I’ve met several girls from Graham’s over the years that suffered from hoof and mouth disease. It’s not funny.

Although Oklahoma residents seem to know whether or not they have herpes and / or hoof and mouth, the most popular search engine results for Oklahoma are equally embarrassing. They have a distinct Derplahoman feel to them. Check it out:
