I don’t know about you, but sometimes I need a break from all of the negativity in the news. That’s why I love to tune into KFOR’s “Is This a Great State or What?” program every now and again to cleanse my palette of the doom and gloom that is ever-present in the media and appreciate the perks and quirks that truly make this state great. Though they’re on the right track, I think the folks at KFOR have overlooked the best parts of Oklahoma. In fact, here are 5 things that should really be featured on KFOR’s “Is This a Great State or What?”
OKC’s Ranch Supply
My sister once ordered a side of ranch in a metro Thai restaurant. Try doing that in California.
The Plight of White Jesus
You know what’s uniquely great about Oklahoma? That the gun-toting, poor-despising, morality-legislating Caucasian Christ that our esteemed lawmakers seem to worship is found nowhere else in the world…let alone in the Bible.
Oklahomans Who Know What It Means to Truly Live Free
With the passing of Constitutional Carry and medical marijuana dispensaries scattered across the state, Oklahoman sure grants a lot of freedom to its people. And with an incarceration rate that is higher than any other COUNTRY in the world, more people in the state have 3 free hots and a cot than anywhere else, I guess.
The Nicest Hornets Around
Back in August, Oklahomans across the state were in a tizzy when large flying insects were spotted and mistaken for the infamous “murder hornets” that are plaguing 2020. Thankfully, wildlife officials have confirmed that the big, scary bugs are not murder hornets after all! They are just harmless cicada killers that paralyze their pray before laying eggs in its defenseless body so their young can feast on its flesh.
The Saving Grace of a Braums Bag of Burritos
Any given morning in Oklahoma, you are just 3 soccer mom Tahoes and $5.99 away from a sack of 5 half-assed wraps filled with egg and sausage that will wash away the sins of a night of drinking faster than any holy water could. And that’s what makes Oklahoma truly great.
