Welcome to the semi-finals of our 2014 Oklahoma State Fair Photo Contest. It's the annual event where we put aside our differences, bond as one, and mercilessly make fun of deep-fried fair freaks in order to get a cheap laugh and feel better about our own sad, pathetic, totally normal, socially acceptable lives.
This year, we received only 150 or so entries, and a couple of them are all-timers. Before we get to the photos...
Snark Disclaimer. Once again, if you stumbled across this link on your niece’s Facebook page and are easily offended and politically correct, I should warn you that The Lost Ogle is an irreverent satirical news and entertainment website. It’s not for everyone, and should not be taken seriously if you’re nice, kind-hearted and only have nice things to say about people. We started this contest seven years ago as an absurd alternative to other State Fair Photo contests. If you take everything way too seriously, and poking fun at our state’s fine people and Walmart culture bothers you, stop reading now and head over to The Pioneer Woman. Similar to our state fair photo contest, most of that site’s content is also depressing. It’s just nicer.
With that being said, here are the first 9 semi-finalists. Check them out and vote for your three favorite after the jump. You can view the other 9 semi-finalists by clicking here.
It's always good to see a young Chuck Norris enjoying his first Oklahoma State Fair. I bet he was there with his youth militia group. I wonder what he's shooting at? I hope it's either a clown, carnie or terrorist. Those things are scary.
Fashion statements like this happen every day at Crossroads Mall, so it's not that weird, but still, did she just make out with Edward Scissorhands? Zing! I doubt it. She was probably in the process of ripping off her shirt like Hulk Hogan, but ran out of breath and had to stop because her bra was cutting off her circulation.
