Hello again, people of the internet! It’s Monday again, time for yet another installment of Monday Morning Tweets. That articulate young gentleman up above is Mr. Wayne Coyne. You may have heard of him. He likes to tweet pictures of his naked wife and, from what I understand, also sings in a band. A couple months ago comedian Marc Maron was in town, and while visiting, interviewed Wayne for his tremendous WTF Podcast. The interview was finally posted last week, and it’s a great listen. Everyone who has some free time this week should check it out if given some free time. It’s really fantastic stuff. Here’s the link. The Wayne stuff starts at about the 22:45 mark.
And now, this week’s tweets!
A happy first weekend in May to you, readers! ‘Tis the time of severe weather and no relief for allergy sufferers in sight. And if you’re a nerd, you’re probably running around today saying “May the fourth be with you!” And we won’t make fun of you for that. I mean, not unless you’re that person that drives the Ford Ranger that’s painted to look like an X-wing with an R2 unit in the bed. Then you can scroll through the archives and read about the OKC Jedi.
Anyway, here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town!
As you all know, we are turning five this month and we wanted to celebrate our birthday like all 5-year olds—at Chuck E. Cheese! I won’t go into much detail, but suffice it to say that three contributors on staff here at TLO are no longer allowed within 500-yards of Chuck E. Cheese’s, schools, churches, or any sort of playground. Yes, it’s sad, but trust me, we regret nothing.
So the folks at the 51st Street Speakeasy decided to cheer us up by throwing us a party. There won’t be animatronic mice, but it’s for the best since Patrick likes to bow up to rodents when he gets drunk. Instead we have Josh Sallee and The Non, both awesome musical acts even if they are less cuddly than Chuck E. Cheese and not as cool as the Rock-afire Explosion. Feel free to get us birthday presents. As you can tell, we really need an AP Manual of Style, a copyeditor, and some original ideas. I didn’t know where to register for those so I thought I’d just tell you here.
P.S. Rumor has it that Josh Sallee is gonna jump out of a large birthday cake and rap happy birthday to us! Maybe!

Welcome to our newest feature. It’s called “Oklahoma Headlines from the Future.” Every couple of weeks, we’ll share with you ten possible headlines you may see in The Oklahoman over the next 1 – 200 years. We hope you enjoy them.

Tom Coburn has always been the least crazy of our two well-known US Senators. Granted, that’s kind of like being the least creepy Mathis Brother, but it should count for something.
Anyway, Senator Coburn appeared on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart last night and would you believe it, he didn’t say anything embarrassing. Here’s a clip:
