The guy pictured above is Clifford Anderson. He was recently caught streaking and screaming through the streets of Downtown Oklahoma City. His excuse? He really needed some Burt’s Bees.
Okay, just kidding. Demons are in his soul or something.
Readers, if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that middle school totally sucked. Your body is changing in all these new and wonderful ways, the kid with the locker next to yours maybe kind of likes you, but also throws rocks at you when you get off the school bus. All you want is privacy and alone time, but your parents totally feel the need to ask you embarrassing personal questions all the time. And for the life of you, you can’t figure out how to do your hair so that you look at least semi-decent. You could not pay me to be 13 again.
As if all that weren’t enough, a now former Oklahoma City principal had students arrested for coming to school because they were suspended for being late to school. By now, I’m sure you’ve heard about all the goings ons at Jefferson Middle School.
During last year’s playoff run, a bunch of boring white guys from Weatherford created a parody video called Beard Like Harden. The “Moves Like Jagger” spoof went virally locally, helped spur the Beardmania craze that hit Oklahoma City, and for better or for worse – I prefer “for worse” – became Berry’s Boomers’ unofficial fight song as they marched through the playoffs.
In case you forgot about it, here it is:
Sorry about getting that back in your head. The follow-up “Boring like Martin” wasn’t nearly as popular.
Anyway, I bring all this up because it looks like we’ve found the replacement to Beard Like Harden. It’s called THUNDER CHANT FIGHT SONG. It was written and performed by some caveman named Mathias. He’s from Southern California. Here’s the video:
If I had to rank my 10 Favorite Funny Movie Scenes of All Time, this classic clip from Old School would make the list. It’s the one where “Frank the Tank” inadvertently shoots himself in the neck with a tranquilizer gun:
Why am I posting a clip from Old School in an article about Sweet Brown’s new music video?
It’s easy. Since the people who made the music video were obviously on horse tranquilizers, it makes a perfect segue and tribute. Check out Sweet Brown’s new, probably-soon-to-be-a-hit music video “Cold Poppin:”
Yesterday, the Oklahoma House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 550 by a vote of 69 – 23. The bill overturns a dated 1941 law that prevents retailers from selling merchandise for less than 6-percent above cost. Basically, what the bill does is legalize those crazy “Black Friday” sales in Oklahoma. That’s pretty good news if you like to wait in line at Wal-Mart to buy cheap Dynex TVs.
Before the bill passed, it was debated on the house floor by state lawmakers. One who spoke in favor of the legislation was House Co-Majority Leader Dennis Johnson (R-Duncan). He owns a small business and had some insightful thoughts on the issue. The most interesting was how he deals with those pesky customers who try to “Jew him down on a price.”
Here’s a clip:
