It’s time once again for another exciting installment of Oglebating, or as we call it at TLO headquarters: “The one where we are running out of famous and/or funny debate videos to put at the top of the post.” By the end of the year, the only videos left to post will be some old Flashpoint clips of Burns Hargis and Mike Turpen arguing.
Last week, we tackled the subject of Megachurches, and, well, the overwhelming majority of you are going to hell. Not that we didn’t know that beforehand.
This week, we’ve decided to debate something everyone can identify with: customer service! Who’s worse: Braum’s or Ted’s Cafe Escondido? We’ll make our cases after the jump.

Most people know that Pearl Jam’s original name was Mookie Blaylock, a tribute to the NBA player and former Oklahoma Sooner. With the upcoming release of Cameron Crowe’s documentary about the band, which is titled, I believe, Flannel, Flannel Everywhere, it’s a good time to discuss what other Oklahoma athletes would make a good band name. After the jump, my stab at it.
We Oklahomans love our ranch dressing. We put it on our salads, dip our vegetables in it, and incorporate it into our lovemaking. Some people are even known to dip their pizza in it! Is that taking our ranch dressing-infatuation too far? After the jump, we debate the eternal question:
Is it socially acceptable to dip your pizza in ranch dressing?
