Survival of the Fittest: Channel 25 will do anything for ratings

funny-evolution-man-trap

As we know, the religion of evolution is a controversial topic in Oklahoma. And it should be. The easy to prove wrong theory is full of lies, deception and makes no sense at all. Do you really believe humans evolved from apes that saw a black monolith in front of cave millions of years ago? Yeah right.

Channel 25 protected innocent Oklahomans from this blasphemous scientific “theory” forced upon us by evil liberal scientists with an agenda by editing out a brief mention of human evolution during Sunday night’s broadcast of Cosmos. By “editing out,” I mean they replaced his ludicrous beliefs with a promo for the Fox 25 News at 9.

From The Raw Story:

In what appeared to be an editing error, a Fox affiliate in Oklahoma managed to remove the only mention of evolution from Sunday night’s Cosmos science documentary by cutting only 15 seconds from the broadcast.

The much-anticipated reboot of Carl Sagan’s legendary Cosmos premiered on Sunday with an overview of the history of the Universe, from the Big Bang to the advent of humans.

It wasn’t until the last 10 minutes of the show that host Neil deGrasse Tyson hinted at human evolution…

For viewers of KOKH-TV in Oklahoma City, that 15 second paragraph was replaced by an awkwardly-inserted commercial for the evening news.

First of all, I apologize for my intro. I thought I was ghostwriting a newspaper column for science-hating Oklahoma legislator Josh Breechen! You see, I was trying to impress his hot wife and, well, it won’t happen again. My bad.

Here’s a clip of the incident. It is kind of funny / awkward:

This woman received life in prison for shoplifting

What do you think is a fair punishment for someone who has been caught shoplifting 29 times?  Community service, jail time, hands cut off, forcing them to do all their shoplifting at Old Navy?

I ask because the Oklahoma woman pictured above – Cecilia Rodriguez – was sentenced to life in prison for shoplifting. She was caught doing the act 29 times. Her appeal of the sentence was recently denied by the U.S. Supreme Court. That really sucks for her… and for us as taxpayers. We now have to spend $18,000 per year to imprison her because she’s a bad thief. Hopefully she’ll get some thieving tips from fellow inmates while in jail.

A Lawton man got stuck in a storm drain

There’s nothing I believe more than the old adage that persistence pays off. Sure, it may take some time. But usually, you are rewarded for your diligence. Case in point: when I was an undergrad, I waited in a closet for nearly an hour for my roommate to walk by so I could jump out at her. Sure, I got cramped and my feet fell asleep. But when she wet her pants after I yelled “boo”, it was totally worth it. Good things come to those who wait, and that’s why one of the biggest bullies of my childhood is now in jail for cooking meth.

But there are times when you put in the time and effort and get nothing. This is life. Much like the Cliffhanger game in The Price is Right, sometimes you keep going and going and eventually fall right off the cliff. Such was the case with a Lawton man. According to KFOR.com:

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.

Let’s go ahead and build that Great Wall of Tornado…

It was kind of weird news week in Oklahoma.

We had some Braum’s delivery truck empty syrup onto the highway, News 9′s Steve Shaw try to extract every ounce (and ounce) of the story into a sweeps waffle, and then some guy who Steve Shaw probably wants to interview prance naked through the streets near Wilshire and May.

In addition to all that, some crazy physicist from Temple proposed that we build giant walls throughout the Midwest to stop tornados.

From KOCO:

Physicist Rongjia Tao of Temple University has authored a paper that proposes building giant walls to prevent tornadoes.

He said three east-west structures should be built to weaken airflow. He claimed that this could help prevent tornadoes from hitting “tornado alley.”

Tao proposed building structures that are about 1,000 feet high and 150 feet wide.

That seems badass! Maybe we can name the walls after Gary England. Here’s where the structures would be constructed:
