I’ve stated on multiple occasions that the worst part about being from Edmond is just being from Edmond. Sure, I got a really great public education from those sweet, sweet tax dollars, but I occasionally wonder if it was all worth it when I find myself defending that city to others who seem to think that everyone who lives there drives a BMW and lights their fireplace with a twenty. (For the record, we use fives.)
For the most part, everyone knows someone from Edmond who is an actual human being and not a caricature of rich Uncle Pennybags, so that makes it a little easier for me to explain what life was like growing up in the Big E. But every once in a while there is someone who ruins it and goes and does the most Edmondy sort of thing a person could think of. A
ccording to NewsOK.com:
We usually don’t cover weird and unusual news that occurs outside the Sooner state, but when a story involves a Peeping Tom (suspect pictured above) placing a hidden camera disguised as an electrical outlet inside a women’s restroom at a Braum’s in Grapevine, Texas, I think we’ll make an exception.
Oklahoma City is the test market for some processed cheese-infested monstrosity called the the Breakfast Quesarito. It’s the little brother of the regular Quesarito, which has been test marketed in OKC since January. According to sources, it’s the type of item you order only when you’ve smoked pot and been day drinking and want to have nightmares.
A couple months after rolling out its first ever breakfast menu, Taco Bell is testing a brand new addition to its morning offerings.
The Breakfast Quesarito is an egg-and-cheese breakfast burrito wrapped inside a grilled cheese quesadilla, instead of a regular tortilla. Customers can add sausage or bacon for $1.99 and steak for $2.79.
The Breakfast Quesarito is currently only available at Taco Bell restaurants in Oklahoma City.
If you can stomach it, take a look at a non-photoshopped pic of the real thing via Grub Grade:
If you’re anything like me, your mind checks out the three or four days before a holiday weekend starts and doesn’t return back to normal until you’ve spent a couple of days mindlessly wasting away in your office or cubicle drinking coffee and surfing the Internet. Unless, of course, you’re poor, a hard worker and/or work in the service industry. That means you probably had to work over the weekend. If so, happy Tuesday.
Anyway, I was treated to something pretty cool over the break. Someone let me know there’s a m4m Missed Connection for me on Craigslist.
A few days ago, the real estate clickbaiting website Estately published a list of what each state googles more than any other any other state. Sound dumb, pointless, non-scientific and confusing? Here’s the explanation:
America’s fifty states have a lot in common, but if their internet search histories are any indication they also have significant differences. Estately ran hundreds of search queries through Google Trends to determine which words, terms, and questions each state was searching for more than any other. The results ranged from mildly amusing to completely disturbing. No doubt this information will come in handy for anyone trying to decide which state they want to buy a home in, especially for those curious how their potential neighbors spend their time online. The results on the map above are just the tip of the online search iceberg.
Yeah right, like someone’s really going to take this stupid study into consideration when they’re trying to figure out which state they want to move to. Of course, maybe they should. Check out Texas:
If you’ve ever pulled a Gravy Train or Chelsea and hooked up with someone during OU / Texas weekend, I apologize for the paranoia we just caused. I’m sure the itching was just a one time thing. Our neighbors in Kansas also have hypochondriac search tendencies:
I’ve met several girls from Graham’s over the years that suffered from hoof and mouth disease. It’s not funny.
Although Oklahoma residents seem to know whether or not they have herpes and / or hoof and mouth, the most popular search engine results for Oklahoma are equally embarrassing. They have a distinct Derplahoman feel to them. Check it out:
