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.

Here’s your Ogle Madness VII Bracket!

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:

Regular Jim Traber and Vanity Perkins don’t like each other…

It looks like we’re not the only ones who can’t stand Regular Jim Traber.

Earlier today, while Jim was breathing out his typical rant about the Oklahoma City Thunder – Kendrick Perkins makes too much money, Derek Fisher is too old, and then you wrap the turkey in a cheesecloth – Vanity Perkins sent out the following tweet:

Christina Fallin appreciates Native American culture and other beautiful things…

Hipster Boo Boo strikes again!

Yesterday, Christina Fallin was “overseeing” a photo shoot as part of her new gig as a “marketing consultant” for So6ix magazine. During the shoot, she posted the following photo on Instagram:

Disturbing, isn’t it? Josh Sallee is going to be on the cover of So6ix. No!!! I’m cool with him appearing on the cover of Look at OKC and The Gazette within weeks of each other, but isn’t that a little too much? For one, he’s teetering on the brink of overexposure. Two, the only people who read So6ix can’t actually read! Oh well, at least he’s helping the “magazine” keep its tradition of writing about the people and personalities we first covered two years ago. Hopefully, he doesn’t fall victim to their cover curse.

Oh wait. What’s that? The real news item here is that Christina Fallin put down her can of black face and decided it would be fun to disrespect and mock Native American culture in a state that has a whole bunch of Native Americans? Yeah, I’m aware. That’s why I sent a screenshot of her ridiculous photo out to our 20,000+ Twitter followers last night.

That’s pretty awful, but on a positive note, at least she wasn’t chugging whiskey or rolling around on the ground mumbling “Tatonka.” I’m sure both crossed her mind. At least she showed some restraint.

After we sent the tweet, people showered the out-of-touch, affluent, attention craving white poser who lacks any self-awareness of the real world with a whole lot of attention. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the “Oh My Gawd, you’re so creative Christinahhhh. I love youuu!” praise that she’s used to receiving from all her hipster friends and So6ix magazine cronies. They were more of the “Hey, you’re an insensitive racist bitch” variety.

Obviously, the negative comments got Christina’s attention. She issued a statement about it this morning, but instead of apologizing, taking responsibility and showing any sort of remorse, she and her boyfriend simply used the pic as an opportunity to promote their awful band and justify the situation with some sort of “holier than thou” philosophical, stoned college student bullshit. It’s one of the most ridiculous, out-of-touch things I’ve ever read.

Annoying OKC Thunder fans want you to pay for their season tickets…

thunder super fans

Here’s some good news if you sit in Section 101 at Thunder games. The two Thunder fans pictured above (Thundor and Thunder Princess) can’t afford their pricey season tickets for the 2014 – 2015 season. Awesome, huh? Now only those damn McDonald’s french fry balloons will distract you from the game.

Or maybe not.

Thundor and Thunder Princess created a Go Fund Me to raise money for their season ticket renewal. Of course, this “news” got the attention of KWTV News 9. If you remember correctly, they’ll cover any story that can be tied back to the Thunder:
