Oklahoma’s quarter just got infinitely cooler.
Last week, some guy on Twitter revealed something that few, if any, non-stoned people have ever noticed or acknowledged – the 2008 Oklahoma state quarter that depicts a scissor-tailed flycatcher swooping over wildflowers also resembles a “buff-ass bird-man wearing tight fringed jeans strutting in a meadow.”

Holy bird shit! I’ll never look at our state quarter in the same way again! I guess that’s a good thing when you consider the non-Birdperson design kind of sucked. I’ve lived in this state my whole life (sad, huh?) and I think I’ve seen more buff-ass bird-men strutting in meadows than scissor-tailed flycatchers making lazy circles in the sky.
Here’s a higher-res version:
Amazing stuff, huh? How quickly can we get some local screen printing shop to make a t-shirt out of that?
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to track down the artist who designed the coin and ask if the hidden image was an accident, or one of the greatest and most-subtle troll jobs in US currency history. Sadly, she passed away unexpectedly in 2015, so I guess we’ll never know. May buff-ass bird-man march forever on in her memory.
