Emily Sutton is selling her couch on Craigslist…

How much would you be willing to pay for a matching couch and chair that was previously owned by Emily Sutton? $5,000? $10,000? $20,000?

If so, have we got a deal for you. The two-time Ogle Madness champion is selling some of her old furniture on Craigslist. Because she’s Emily Sutton and kind and sweet and perfect, some of the proceeds even go to charity.

Here’s the ad:

 

Emily Sutton’s Couch & Recliner (Portion of Sales to Charity!) – $400 (OKC)

Hello friends! I just moved and need to sell my couch & recliner. I will give a quarter of the sale to the GO MITCH GO Foundation in the fight against all blood cancers!

Couch & matching recliner for sale! Great condition. 4 years old. The microfiber suede is machine washable. I am willing to talk about the price.

THANKS!

$400 for a couch and chair previously owned by Emily Sutton??! Sign me up!!! I’d drop that much for them sight unseen. Not only would they be a great conversation starter – “That couch was owned by Emily Sutton” – but they’d be the perfect fit for my tornado safe room / weather museum / mom’s basement.

Let’s go ahead and check them out:

Linda Cavanaugh interviewed Weird Al Yankovic…

If that headline sounds as terrifying as a three-minute and forty-six second joke about Kurt Cobain mumbling his words, then I got some awful news for you. Linda Cavanaugh, a woman who wouldn’t know Amish Paradise from Amish Mafia, interviewed Weird Al Yankovic on Monday. I guess the comedian / songwriter / now-apparently-a-childrens-book author was in town to promote his new book.

The interview was weird and strange and awkward. Basically, it was everything you’d expect it to be. Check it out:

Aaron Tuttle is still a tool…

A couple of days ago, local Facebook weatherman Aaron Tuttle posted the following message on his Facebook profile page:

Yes, Aaron Tuttle has 35,000 people following him on Facebook. Cormac McCarthy couldn’t write a more depressing sentence. How does that even happen? Do the ladies like his over-the-top weather hype and 4-pack of Miller Light Tall Boy abs, or did Abigail Ogle loan him some of her Twitter followers? Who knows.

Anyway, let’s check out his special announcement. Maybe he’s going to work for David Payne, has accepted global warming as a fact, or decided to get to the laundry part of GTL:

2 Chainz is sorry or whatever for whatever happened in Oklahoma City or whatever…

Three weeks after his highly publicized arrest in Oklahoma City for “obstructing justice,” the rapper 2 Chainz sat down with MTV to discuss the incident. We know this thanks to the alert reporting of the state’s most trusted news.

Via NewsOK.com:

Rapper 2 Chainz, who was arrested along with ten other men on his tour bus by Oklahoma City police after an Aug. 21 concert at Chesapeake Energy Arena, apologized to Oklahoma City during a video interview with MTV.

My apologies to OKC or whatever and to the fans and to the people that actually missed my listening party in New York,” said 2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps.

Epps and the men on his tour bus were arrested on misdemeanor complaints of obstruction. Two semi-automatic pistols, a 12-gauge shotgun, prescription painkillers and marijuana residue were all found on the bus, according to papers filed in Oklahoma County District Court.

“I’m cold turkey on all criminal activities,” Epps also said during the MTV interview.

When I first read this story, I just figured 2 Chainz was a flippant narcissistic

But then something happened.

I checked Twitter and noticed OSU fans, former players and Oklahoman sports writers were still complaining that Sports Illustrated’s Thayer Evans allegedly took OSU player quotes out of context for the magazine’s slam piece. Could the Oklahoman be doing the same thing? I decided to watch the entire MTV interview. I’m glad I did or whatever.

Breaking down Lord England’s appearance on The Colbert Report…

As I’m sure you know, Gary England was a special guest on last night’s Colbert Report. The whole event was kind of surreal. It was kind of like watching He-Man and Optimus Prime team up to defeat Skeletor and Sally Kern on a Friday night in the big town, only more fun.

In case you missed it and/or want to watch it for eternity, here’s the clip.

Anyone else notice the interview started slow? You could tell Gary was a bit overwhelmed by the moment. He let out some nervous laughs and had an unsure look in his eyes. I think the only people who’ve ever seen him that flustered are his wife and Loretta. Seriously, you would have thought Colbert was going to ask him how to operate a giant iPad or something.

Then things changed.
