It’s been a few months since David Payne left Channel 4 to be Gary England’s severe weather deity in waiting at Channel 9. So far, it doesn’t appear the new gig (and larger paycheck) has changed the guy. He’s still the same casual, laid back, chatty weatherman we’ve all grown to moderately enjoy. When May gets here, we fully expect him to drive into a tornado and end up in heaven or Oz.
If you need proof, check out this clip of him presenting the seven-day forecast on News 9 at 10:00pm. He yucks it up with Kelly and Amanda and suggests that we may be a computer animated leprechaun.
The Derplahoman pictured above is Misty VanHorn. Her mug shot went viral over the weekend when it was revealed she attempted to sell her 10-month-old and 2-year-old daughters on Facebook. Apparently she wasn’t smart enough to figure out how Craigslist works.

See that picture? No, it’s not cheesy clip art of an African-American household for a banking ad. It’s actually Oklahoma Speaker of the House T.W. Shannon and his family. If he looks happy in that picture, well, he should be. He has a hot wife, cute kids and nice sweaters. He also gets to prance around while wearing shoes with no socks. What a joy that must be. I’m conscious and self-aware, so I’d feel like a disgusting tool doing something unsanitary like that, but it would be fun to do it for a day and not worry about people judging and mocking you.
Anyway, T.W. thinks all people should be happy and married like he at least pretends to be. He’s introduced legislation that would take money away from welfare entitlement programs and fund a pro-marriage public service campaign instead.

I’ve typed about six different introductions for this post and they all sucked. I wasn’t sure if I should tease the bracket, explain how it works, or write an ode to Emily Sutton’s bangs. Instead of doing any of that stupid stuff, I’m just going to get to the point. Behold your Ogle Madness VI bracket:
Here’s the direct link: Ogle Madness 6 Bracket
That was easy! The Madness gets started this week with our four play-in games. Then the full tournament begins next Monday.
Now time for a quick Q&A:
Q: I’ve never been to this website before. What in the world is Ogle Madness?
A: Ogle Madness is our annual Oklahoma celebrity tournament. Entering its sixth year, which is probably six too many, we take 68 Oklahoma people, places and things and seed them in a NCAA tournament style bracket. We then post the match-ups on the site and let you, our loyal Ogle reader, chose who you would like to advance. The person, place or thing that gets the most votes advances to the next round. The loser goes home.
Q: I’m a freakin’ genius when it comes to these things. Are you running another “Pick the Champ” contest?
A: Of course we are! Ogle Madness VI is presented by our friends at Picasso Cafe in the Paseo. They are offering a $250 feast to one lucky mole who correctly picks the Ogle Madness VI champion! To register, simply email your pick to win it all to OgleMadness@gmail.com by 11:59pm Sunday, March 17th. At the end of Ogle Madness, we’ll take all the correct picks and enter them into a drawing for a $250 feast at Picasso’s on Paseo. If some cinderella takes over and no one picks the correct winner, everyone will be entered into the drawing.
Q: Who should I pick to win?
A: If you need some guidance, you may want to look at our previous Ogle Madness champions. Here they are:
It’s been a rough week for the intern who writes the captions at Channel 4. First they forgot the name of their own reporter, now they are making claims that Jim Wyett doesn’t own a guy.
Via an Ogle Mole on Twitter:
Know what else Jim doesn’t own? A fashionable pair of sunglasses. He does own the 1990s Mark McGuire goat-tee look, though. That will be in style again before you know it. In fact, some hipster in the Plaza District is trimming one as you read this.
Since owning a guy has been illegal for 150 years, you have to think the caption was supposed to read “Jim Wyett doesn’t own a gun.” But I even question the accuracy of that statement. If Jim’s not a gun owner, why does he look like every other gun owner (minus the overly patriotic hat)? Also, why’s he at a place where guns appear to be readily sold and available? That’s like showing a pic of a girl in front of Baker’s Street with the caption “Is not easy.” It’s just not accurate. Also, what’s the ghost from Three Men and a Baby doing over Jim’s left shoulder? That kid has grown up.
This isn’t the worse typo KFOR’s ever committed. Anyone remember this:
