Hello folks, welcome back to Monday Morning Tweets! It’s our weekly look back at some of the tweets from our local celebrities and media. I can’t tell you guys how hard it is every Monday not to just use every one of @JimTraber‘s bitterly angry and exclamation-point obsessed tweets as the entirety of this series, but I’ve fought the urge for another week. After the jump, some tweets from people who aren’t Jim Traber.
New Feature Alert! New Feature Alert!
We get a lot of emails, tips, wild stories, gossip, and funny links sent to us each week. Unfortunately, we don’t have the time to write about them all…until now.
Welcome to the Friday Mailbag, where each Friday we’ll publish some of the best emails that are sent to the Ogle In-Box each week. Is this a rip-off of something that a lot of other websites do? Hell, yes! Do we care? Hell, no!
To make our mailbag better than those other sites, we’re going to give away a prize! Whoever sends us the best email each week will win a $25 gift certificate to a local restaurant. This week’s eatery is Kaisers Bistro. You’ve probably heard about Kaisers. Located in the heart of Midtown next to that cool roundabout, they are well-known for great burgers, sandwiches and delicious homemade ice cream. Nick Collison even tweeted that Kaisers is his one of his favorite local restaurants! That’s a cool endorsement.
Anyway, we’ll determine the winning email via a reader poll at the end of the post. So read the emails and vote after the jump!
What’s up, readers? Happy Friday to you all. How many of you have Monday off for President’s Day? I hate all of you. I need more 3-day weekends in my life. In fact, in Puerto Rico, they have 22 holidays that they close businesses for that we don’t even recognize or know about. I think we need to follow that example. We should also have more barbecue pork sold at roadside stands and white sand beaches. I would vote for this as a new MAPS project.
Anyway, here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town.
I was not born a coal miner’s daughter and I’ve never been to Butcher Hollow. I think once though, I watched the Loretta Lynn movie on AMC or something and I actually paid attention to approximately 30% of it, which is way more than the average movie on TV gets from me. Also, the whole thing about Loretta getting married at 14 stresses me out. I can’t really handle the story of her life.
Anyway, if you’re in or around the Concho area, why don’t you go see a living legend who basically lived the American Dream? Maybe hearing songs about how she grew up will totally help illustrate the Baby Boomer’s belief that all of Gen X and Y kids are entitled. Or, it could just further illustrate the Baby Boomer’s historical vanity by showing how much they think they’re the only ones who had it hard. It’s your call.
Remember those two guys pictured above? They are the slackers who appeared in those incessant Sonic commercials during the mid to late aughts. The duo would go to Sonic, bicker about tater tots or slushies or roller skates or whatever, and…well…that was about it.
At first, their straight man and the funny guy routine was kind of humorous. But after a few years, the bit got old and Sonic replaced the guys with a sarcastic married couple and a soccer mom and her teenage son. Then that stuff quickly got old and Sonic dropped the campaign all together.
Well, have we got some exciting news for you! Those wild and wacky Sonic guys have returned. And guess what??! They want their old jobs back!!! How cute!!!
From an advertorial written by Don Mecoy in today’s Oklahoman:
The girl pictured above is Kate Upton. She’s currently the hottest girl on the planet and cover girl of the 2012 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. What makes Kate so hot, in my educated opinion, is that she really doesn’t look like the typical supermodel. She’s not waif thin. She’s not exotic. She’s kind of like the girl next door…if the girl next door just happened to be 19 years old and the hottest girl on earth. Make sense?
Anyway, an Ogle Mole emailed us yesterday and mentioned that Aubrey McClendon was Kate Upton’s uncle or something. Intrigued, I decided to see what I could dig up. This is what I learned: Read More
