Hello there, internet. It’s time for once again Monday Morning Tweets! I was curious how long we’ve been doing this, so I went back and checked. This is the 40th edition of MMT! Can you believe we’ve been wading through Dean Blevins’ tweets for that long, friends? What kind of sick people do that? What a long, strange, journey it’s been. Oh well, no reason to stop now, I guess.
This week’s tweets are after the jump.
Steve Lackmeyer (@stevelackmeyer)
It really is a good article, and you should read it if you haven’t already. And man, Steve Lackmeyer is one proud Oklahoma City enthusiast, huh? I only display that sort of passion in the immediate aftermath of Breaking Bad episodes. Anyway, if anyone needs Steve, he’s busy smoking a cigarette and basking in the afterglow of that New York Times Magazine piece.
David Payne (@tornadopayne)
Good to know.
Remember that part in Arrested Development when Michael Bluth is struck by “something he remembered from his childhood” and it turned out to be a flying Mary Poppins doll? I do, and so do you, because you like funny stuff. But here’s a secret: our fearless leader Patrick has no idea what we’re talking about, because he doesn’t think that show is funny and refuses to watch it. Scandalous!
Mark Taylor (@AddTaylor)
Look, I don’t care what you guys do in the privacy of your own newsrooms, but let’s keep it off Twitter, please. This is a family medium!
Vanity Perkins (@VanityHearts5)
This is Kendrick Perkins’ wife. Lovely for Edmond to treat her this way. No word on what exactly it was these people have been doing to her, but it sure is a proud day for my hometown. We’ve got quite the reputation building among our black friends.
Here’s what Dante Jordan wrote on TLO about a month ago in a post entitled “10 Things For Black People To Do In OKC.”
6. Drive Around Edmond and Scare White People
You’d be surprised how many dirty looks Black people get in Edmond, OK. That was sarcasm. You wouldn’t be surprised at all and that’s why one of my favorite things to do is let my windows down, turn Hit Em Up by 2Pac up to the maximum volume of 31, and cruise the mean streets of “E-Town” (That’s always been the dumbest nickname to me). And I have long hair? That’s gonna be the longest red light of all time for someone.”
Edmond seems like it’s about as popular with black people as Mitt Romney, the city of Boston, and “Seinfeld.”
A bunch of random people on Twitter
So so far we’ve done random Twitter searches for the phrases “fuck Oklahoma” and “Oklahoma” “ugly.” Today, we’re going to see what the tweet world has to say about “Oklahoma” and “fat.”
Breaking news: people on the internet are mean!
The Jim Traber Loves Exclamation Points Tweet Of The Week!!!!! (@jimtraber)
Good to know Jim is so enthusiastic about men crying!!! I wonder if he sat at home Tuesday night after the election telling himself “strong men also cry” over and over. Just remember, Jim: the bums will always lose.
The Dean Blevins Memorial Tweet From Dean Blevins (@DeanBlevins)
All right, this is Classic Deano! The man has gone back to the percentages. And give him credit, he’s not going all vague like 60/40 or even 80/20. He is giving Bobby Petrino a 9% chance of getting an SEC job. That is about as specific as it gets. We also get bonus Classic Deano in that he was able to work in a pointless nickname he thought up himself and a totally off-the-wall metaphor.
That’s all for this week. Follow me on Twitter here. Good bye!
