Aaron Tuttle is sad…

A couple of weeks ago, we found the following selfie on Aaron “The Weather Situation” Tuttle’s Facebook page. In case you forgot, Aaron is a meteorological muscle man who sells cars on TV, once served as a weatherman for Channel 5, and now spreads weather hype, fear and global warming denial theories to his 35,000 Facebook fans.

Not to be outdone by that level of douchieness, Aaron has posted another troubling selfie to Facebook. This time he’s showing his sensitive side:

Jaime Cerreta is leaving Channel 25…

Long live the lunges.

We have learned via the Ogle Mole Network that Fox 25 anchor Jaime Cerreta will be leaving OKC for a new market in August. Details of where she’s going have not yet been released, although I think it may be somewhere on the West Coast. There’s also no word on what her boyfriend Dave Morris thinks about all this. Let’s hope Jaime takes him with her.

This move isn’t all that surprising. Jaime nearly left OKC in 2008, but reconsidered after we convinced Andrew Speno to donate his salary to her. I guess we screwed up by not pressuring her new co-anchor Mike Brooks to do the same. Based on this pic we acquired last fall, it wouldn’t have been a tough sell:

The Many Faces of Paul Folger…

Just like anyone, I have a bunch of strange / odd habits. One of them is that I like to have the TV turned on with the sound muted while I work. I can’t really explain why I do this, but I think it helps with my concentration. It also probably explains all the typos.

Last night I was watching the NBA Finals. When the Heat built their lead in the 4th quarter, my routine kicked in and I got out the computer, muted the TV, and went to work writing stuff for the Internet. About 30 minutes later, I glanced up and witnessed the following exchange between Rusty McCranie, Paul Folger and Jessica Schambach. Remember, the TV was muted so I couldn’t hear what they were discussing:

Did you catch them? If not, watch the video again on full screen and pay attention to Paul Folger’s face. Maybe you had to be half-drunk and alone on your couch, but I thought it was hysterical. I guess it was the first time I ever noticed the many faces of Paul Folger. Here are 12 of them:

This city needs to go on yet another diet….

I guess we’re still fat.

Just a couple of years after city leaders announced the citizens of OKC lost one-million pounds by eating fruits and vegetables and rollerblading around Lake Hefner or whatever, Oklahoma City is back in the familiar spot of being one of the unhealthiest cities in America.

From ABC News:

Minneapolis was rated as the country’s healthiest and most fit city while Oklahoma City needs to get on a treadmill.

It is the third year in a row that Minneapolis topped the national ranking by the American College of Sports Medicine. It’s the fifth year in a row that Oklahoma City has come in dead last…

Oklahoma City was ranked last in the 50 cities analyzed. The study found that 77 percent of Oklahoma City residents have health insurance, and 67 percent have exercised in the last month.  The death rate for heart disease is 23 percent, while in Minneapolis it is 12 percent.

Wait a second? Fifth year in a row? As I mentioned above, I thought we conquered our obesity problem when Mayor Cornett put us on that diet back in 2007. It was joyous occasion. We lost 1,000,000 pounds, fit into the skinny jeans and everyone got laid.

At least we did according to this “Mission Accomplished” article that was published in the Oklahoman in February of 2012:

Reed Timmer the Scientist is in a national All State commercial…

All State has debuted a new commercial featuring Mike Morgan’s bionic storm chaser “Dr.” Reed Timmer the Scientist. The spot advertises the insurer’s new mobile weather alerts, because that’s apparently now a thing.

Here’s the spot:
