Happy Monday after Daylight Savings Time. If you’re like me, then your zombie shuffling through your office and making half-ass jokes about how there isn’t enough coffee in the world for you make it through this day. And, again, if you’re like me, you’ll spend half the morning taking a nap in the conference room, praying that no one has an impromptu meeting that may disturb your slumber or get you fired. Couple this with the knowledge that the weather is going to be fantastic, and it’s hard to sit in your office and be even moderately productive today. But don’t fret. I’ve got all you need in the way of last week’s best tweets. They won’t make you a better worker, but they might make you smile. So sit back and settle in, because the tweets are after the jump!
It looks like we’re not the only ones who can’t stand Regular Jim Traber.
Earlier today, while Jim was breathing out his typical rant about the Oklahoma City Thunder – Kendrick Perkins makes too much money, Derek Fisher is too old, and then you wrap the turkey in a cheesecloth – Vanity Perkins sent out the following tweet:
I swear I can not stand Jim or whatever his name is on sports animal
Hey, Vanity Perkins is normal just like everyone else! Awesome.
Not wasting any time, she followed with:
Please somebody tell me he was a player before a coach or something….

Actually, Jim did play Major League Baseball and college football… very poorly. In fact, we published an article that asked “Was Jim Traber the Kendrick Perkins of Major League Baseball?” He was actually worse! That’s how bad Jim Traber was at professional sports. Vanity should read it.
At this point, Vanity turned into Angry Vanity and lost a little bit of logic and reason. Warning: Heavy doses of hypocrisy ahead:
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.

Hello everyone. It’s Adam. I’ve just experienced my first 15 minutes of fame.
About a week and a half ago a created a video called “Full House of Cards.” Here it is:
I posted the clip to Facebook, Twitter and Reddit and it took off. It popped up on Time.com, PerezHilton.com and HLN via a link on CNN. I’ve been called a YouTube and bored genius. People started writing stories intertwining the two shows.
The crowning achievement came Sunday. In the interview during Oscar’s preshow, Kevin Spacey brought up the video and said he mentioned it John Stamos.
Think about that. I, Adam Holt, have influenced a conversation between Kevin Spacey and John Stamos. That’s resume material. Heck, that is my resume.
Education: University of Central Oklahoma
Work Experience: I HAVE INFLUENCED A CONVERSATION BETWEEN KEVIN SPACEY AND JOHN STAMOS.
Do you know what the next thing that will touch that resume after the interviewer? A rubber stamp that says “Hired.” Anyways, that’s pretty good for an idea that I thought of right before I fell asleep. Here’s stuff to do!
Here’s some good news if you sit in Section 101 at Thunder games. The two Thunder fans pictured above (Thundor and Thunder Princess) can’t afford their pricey season tickets for the 2014 – 2015 season. Awesome, huh? Now only those damn McDonald’s french fry balloons will distract you from the game.
Or maybe not.
Thundor and Thunder Princess created a Go Fund Me to raise money for their season ticket renewal. Of course, this “news” got the attention of KWTV News 9. If you remember correctly, they’ll cover any story that can be tied back to the Thunder:
