When Emily Sutton first moved to this market in late 2009 (pic above), I don’t think anyone would have predicted that she’d blossom into the local pop culture phenomenon that she’s become today. I’m not sure if it’s due to her charm, sneaky (and somewhat nerdy) good looks, or the fact that Oklahomans seem to love anything that has to do with the weather, Emily Sutton’s popularity is just off the charts! Hell, she’s so popular that we had to dedicate an entire posts to her bangs.
If you need proof of the adoration people have for her, take a look at the top 15 Emily Sutton search engine queries we’ve received over the past six months. They’re both funny and and creepy…like dedicating an entire post to her bangs:
Okay, so maybe her sneaky good looks have something to do with it.
Anyway, today is a lucky day for those 59 Internet perverts who found The Lost Ogle by searching “Emily Sutton Bikini.” Behold the Emily Sutton bikini pic:

It’s been another fantastic week, and no one can deny that. The Thunder have swept all four of their games, including revenge in Minnesota, another pounding of the Lakers, squeaking by Portland at home with some late defense, and a KD-Russ scorefest against Phoenix. But those wins have been more unorthodox than you think.
During the game against the Trail Blazers, Serge Ibaka and Thabo Sefolosha were sitting out with injuries. Those injuries resulted in training camp invitee DeAndre Liggins being thrust into the lineup. Liggins played like a man possessed, exhibiting lightning quick defense, excellent offensive awareness, and an impressive ability to pressure.
His performance got me thinking. What are some of the better performances that we’ve seen from injury replacements in the Thunder’s past? Obviously, the Thunder have been blessed with an almost totally injury-free roster, which has been a huge contributor to their success. However, on those rare occasions where somebody gets the flu, contorts a quad, or drinks too many shots with Wayne Coyne, a benchwarmer has had to step in. Some have failed, but others have flourished.
This post is a chronicle of some performances you’ve probably forgotten. The list here focuses on performances in individual games, rather than over a long period of time. And it doesn’t necessarily focus on who replaced who tit-for-tat, but rather who was able to step up and fill the injured player’s role.
In the novel, Great Expectations, Pip helps an escaped convict get away from the fuzz and in turn, that dude becomes his benefactor and pays for his schooling while Pip is tortured by Miss Havisham and Estella. Or something like that. Honestly, I haven’t read the book since freshman year of high school and I prefer Hard Times to any other work by Dickens. The point of all this is to say that students throughout history have needed help paying for their education, a need that is undoubtedly felt now that tuition rates have hiked after recent budget cuts.
By now, I’m sure you’ve seen the story by KFOR about college students looking for sugar daddies and sugar mamas. After all, we can’t all help out convicts to get our schooling paid for, though one would think that paying off student loans to Sallie Mae is roughly the same thing as helping criminals. But some people aren’t down with rich folks paying the tuition of students. According to the report:
Every now and then I search YouTube for random Oklahoma videos to post on the site. Most the videos are boring, others are funny, and some of them feature a guy like Aurelio celebrating his 18th birthday by putting on a Burger King crown and dancing the Cha Cha Slide:
Man, now I feel like going to Graham’s and hitting on ugly chicks in the country bar. Or better yet, Incahoots or Cowboys or whatever it’s called now on coin beer night. Is that place still open? Last time I went there about 10 years ago they had live bull riding and I think someone was shot. Typical night I guess.
Seriously, that video’s just awesome. Of course, I probably think this because I’ve always wanted to do the Charlie Brown in a church cafeteria while my fun-hating girlfriend gives me disapproving looks from underneath a furry bear hat, but what can I say, I’m a traditionalist. Also, that overly energetic girl in the red jacket at the beginning looks like one of my old co-workers. We’ll call her Karen.
Anyway, here are some other random videos I found of Oklahoman’s dancing on YouTube. Check them out:
As The Lost Ogle’s resident stand-up comic, I like to keep my finger on the pulse of the newest and hippest jokes about Oklahoma. Reddit recently pointed me toward a webpage that had nothing but jokes about our great state! So in my post today, I would like to give you the best and worst jokes about Oklahoma and its universities, with my evaluations. ENJOY! THE BEST JOKES Q: How do you castrate an Oklahoma State Cowboys fan? A: Kick his sister in the mouth Fantastic joke, one of my favs when it was about Arkansas. But some comedic genius had the foresight to change the butt of the joke to OSU fans! It gets bonus points for being about oral sex and incest! – Q: If you have a car containing a Sooners wide receiver, a Sooners linebacker, and a Sooners defensive back, who is driving the car? A: The cop. BOOM! Take that Sooner fans! It’s funny because college football players get in trouble sometimes. No way could this joke be changed to a different school. – Q: How do you make University of Oklahoma cookies? A: Put them in a big Bowl and beat for 3 hours. Sure, this joke has been told a million times in a variety of ways, but it still made me smile. Why? Because other people’s pain is funny. – Q: How do they separate the men from the boys at Oklahoma? A: With a restraining order. Pedophilia, good job internet! Other acceptable answer includes, “With a crowbar.” – THE WORST JOKES Read More
