Have you ever been to Jamba Juice and thought, “I must really hate my body because I’m putting all these harsh chemicals in it.” Well NO MORE! OKC is getting its first organic juice bar. That’s right, drinking juice just became more pretentious. No wonder we are such a fat state, the juices we’ve been pouring down our face hole has come from non-organic fruits and vegetables.
If you’ve lived in Oklahoma for any amount of time, then you’ve heard horror stories about Lawton. It has a lot of crime, weird Craigslist ads, and it smells funny. I’ve done some comedy there, once at a bar show and another time for a party at Ft. Sill, so my exposure to Lawton is limited. But this news story about a Publisher’s Clearing House scam isn’t going to help shake the fact that people think Lawton is sketchy place.
From News 9:
The classy woman pictured above is Ericka Danna. She recently tried to smuggle a marijuana pipe into the Oklahoma County Jail. Police knew something was weird when she farted and blew a smoke ring out of the bottom of her orange jump suit. Once they got the munchies, they knew where to look.
OK, so it won’t actually be the dead former President of Iraq, but his stuff will be on display at the Oklahoma History Center! That’s right, you can look at the belongings of an anti-gay, multiple marriage having, power-hungry tyrant. And after you are done touring the Governor’s Mansion, you can go across the street and visit Saddam’s memorabilia! BOOM, take that Fallin!
Seriously though, Saddam’s stuff will be on exhibit in OKC, and I think it’s weird that someone would parade the belongings of Hussein around America. Is there a place I can go to see Hitler’s underwear? Or what about Bin Laden’s toiletries? Well, probably, but not anywhere in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma History Center is slated to unveil a special Saddam Hussein exhibit to mark the 10th anniversary of the former Iraqi dictator’s capture.
Among the highlights of the display in Oklahoma City is a European-tailored service uniform worn by Hussein.
The exhibit- which also includes firearms and other items- will go on full display at the center later this month. It’s open to the public.
Retired Army Lt. Col. and former Oklahoma lawmaker Steve Russell, who helped lead the hunt for Hussein, is loaning the collection to the center for the exhibit.
Hussein was captured Dec. 13, 2003 and executed in 2006.
Sounds pretty boring if you ask me. If I wanted to look at dead people’s clothes I would go to Goodwill. Also, is it strange that Steve Russell has some of Saddam’s clothing and firearms? How did Saddam’s clothing and possessions get divvied up after his capture, and why was Steve Russell allowed to keep it? Do they just let our soldiers keep the possessions they find, or did he bid for the mementos on eBay?
I have some better ideas for exhibits at the Oklahoma History Center, and you can check them out after the jump!
“The Single Mom Who Takes 11-years to Complete College” Exhibit
If you are a regular reader of TLO, you probably know that local rapper Zero and I have some beef. “Beef” is the term I use for people I’ve never met, who I write about, and then worry that they’ll shoot me. The “Beef” stems from the time we made fun of one of his music videos:
Dear Mr. Zero. I don’t want to make fun of you. I like your music and wish you a long and successful career rapping and killing Crips, so please don’t shoot me with your great great grandfather’s Civil War era revolver. Seriously, that’s a sweet musket. When you commit a drive-by with that thing, do you have to drive around the block six times? Did you steal Senator Cockroft’s Civil War themed sidearm? Considering how attune you are to clothing and style, I would imagine that you wouldn’t go with mismatched revolvers. You seem more like a Glock man to me. Also, why did you get 405 tattooed on your stomach? That’s like the easiest part of a telephone number to remember. Before your next tattoo, make sure the artist checks to ensure that all the numbers or letters are the same size font.
Since I published that post, Zero and I have kind of made up. He offered me life, and I offered to write nice things about his other videos. It’s amazing what can be accomplished in a basement at gunpoint.
Anyway, Zero and his posse, the “Okie Boy Goon Young Guns” (OBGYNs), have dropped two new videos. They are called “Ten Toe Swag” and “Thank You Lord.” Check them out:
