Samaje Perine got the Taiwanese Animators treatment…

If Saturday left any doubts, Samaje Perine has officially made it.

Yesterday, the Taiwanese Animators released a video recapping the OU running back’s record-setting day in Gaylord Oklahoma Memorial, or as OSU fans like to call it, The Big Gay.

The video is amazingly accurate in its storytelling. It shows stereotypical rain-soaked OU fans enjoying the game…

Check out the entire video after the jump. You’ll probably want to watch it three or four times like I just did…

The one where a guy from Lawton steals dirty movies from Family Video…

I was running some errands yesterday in NW OKC and spotted this on the back of a Mercury Villager minivan.

When I noticed the sticker, I thought “Yeah right… there’s no way someone is driving around town with a porn site ad on the back of their minivan. It’s probably just a weird goth band or something.” So I grabbed my phone, went to GirlsChoke.com, and, well, yes way, someone is totally driving around town with a porn site sticker on the back of their minivan.

That may seem a little weird, tacky and gross, but at least there were not any stick figures having an orgy on the bottom right corner of the window. Also, the ad does provide a public service. Apparently there are some people out there who are not aware there’s an ample supply of free pornography on the internet. And of course, these people live in Lawton.

We know this thanks to Anthony Mercier. He was recently busted trying to steal $1,200 worth of “porn” from a Lawton video store.

A Lawton man is behind bars after he stole nearly $1,200 in pornography from Family Video.

Okay, let’s just stop it right there and address some questions…

1. Oklahoma video stores can sell porn? Unless our legislature recently changed some laws at the Blue House, the answer is “No.” Oklahoma retail outlets are only able to sell 3.2% porn. You know, stuff like “Red Shoe Diaries” or “Rochelle! Rochelle!

2. Family Video has an adult video section? That may be the greatest oxymoron of all time. Before you know it, Mardel will start selling biblical erotica and Family Leisure will let swingers have sex in the showroom hot tubs.

3. Why was the guy stealing from Family Video? Isn’t this the same place that lets you rent 10 movies for $1 without any late fees? That would be like jacking a pizza from Cici’s. It’s about as stupid as paying for porn.

Here’s the rest of the story. Like most things in Lawton, it involves cigarette lighters and the smell of burning plastic:

Here’s video of a meteorite that nearly destroyed Edmond…

The list of things that can kill you in Oklahoma continues to grow.

In addition to tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, wildfires, blizzards, heat, and mountain lions, now we have to worry about meteorites.

Need proof? Check out this YouTube video of what some guy claims is a meteor exploding in the sky over Edmond this morning.

Kids in Guthrie are cold…

shining cold weather

Yesterday, news broke that the heat is out at a Guthrie elementary school. Instead of cancelling classes or giving the kids bulletproof tornado blankets to stay warm, the school district leaders are acting like it’s no big deal.

Via NewsOK.com:

Four elementary school classrooms have been without heat since Monday, prompting one teacher to ask parents to send their children to school with blankets.

A letter from that teacher sent home with students was met with disapproval by Guthrie Public Schools Superintendent Mike Simpson, who said about 100 children at Fogarty Elementary School are using the auditorium, the library and a computer lab until their classrooms can be properly heated.

“We’re going to put them in a space where learning can go on,” Simpson said Wednesday.

First of all, let’s give props to all the bad ass kids in Guthrie for having to deal with this shit. We have working heat in our city schools and they still close them when it gets too cold outside. I hope your sissified, over-protective parents don’t ruin all the fun for you, Guthrie kids. You’re going to have a hell of a story to over-embellish to your own grandkids someday:

“Oh, so you think you have it rough? When I was a kid growing up in Oklahoma, we didn’t even have heat in our schools!”

Mrs. Moore, the teacher who sent the letter, got in a bit of trouble. Apparently, informing parents that their kids may catch hypothermia in the classroom is against school policy:

Simpson said the teacher was not authorized to distribute the letter, which made its way onto an Internet message board Tuesday.

“That didn’t come from the principal or the district administration,” he said. “We’ve had discussions with all our staff.”…

The teacher is identified in the letter as Mrs. Moore. The only Fogarty teacher listed on the school’s website with the same last name is Amber Moore, who teaches second grade.

Moore did not respond to requests for comment.

Here’s the controversial letter:

A lady in Edmond had an explosive first aid kit

As someone who made it from Daisy Scout all the way to Brownie Scout, I know a thing or two about the dangers of scouting. And by that I mean I know what it’s like to not meet your cookie sale quota. I also know what it’s like to quit an organization because you wanted to learn some camping skills but never did anything beyond standing outside a grocery store to sell Thin Mints to strangers. Even though your friends who were in the Boy Scouts got to earn a badge that required them jump into some freezing water, remove their pants and use them as a flotation device, you got a badge that looks like a carousel horse that shows you sold the bare minimum of over-priced Do-si-dos.

But whatever. I’m not bitter. I don’t even care. That was totally over twenty years ago and I’m over it. I’ve moved on. And I didn’t get an ounce of pleasure out of thinking that maybe a Girl Scout of the past created an explosive to express her dissatisfaction with the organization.
