Oklahoma Senator Proposes Paper Straw Ban for Earth Day…

When he's not scrolling through adult diaper threads on 4-Chan, State Senator Nathan Dahm fashions himself as one of the “funny guys” in the Oklahoma Senate.

Never scared to retell a “stick it to the libs” quote he heard on YouTube, quote a scene from Anchorman, or simply pull an April Fool's Day prank that will get him stripped of his senate leadership positions, the comedian's always looking for unique ways to make people laugh – or based on some of the laws he's authored – cry.

Knowing that, we shouldn't be surprised to learn that old Dahmmy Boy filed a bill today that will make every reader of The Babylon Bee proud. In honor of Earth Day, Dahm filed Senate Bill 1065 that will – get this – ban paper straws in Oklahoma, because you know, save the trees!

Amiright?

7 better actors to play Joe Exotic in the upcoming Tiger King mini-series

It’s been five years since the Netflix documentary series about Joe Exotic came out. Wait… let me check my notes… last year? Well, it certainly feels like it’s been that long.

The Hollywood cycle is catching up, and we’re finally getting a dramatized version of the story, long after anyone still really cares about it. Here’s the details from Variety:

The Joe Exotic series coming to NBC, Peacock, and USA Network has crowned its “Tiger King.” John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) has been cast as Joe Exotic, opposite Kate McKinnon as Carole Baskin, in a limited series based on the real-life rivals of the big cat world who shot to fame following Netflix’s early-pandemic docuseries hit.

Variety reports that the Joe Exotic limited series starring Kate McKinnon as Carole Baskin has cast John Cameron Mitchell to play the titular “Tiger King” himself. Mitchell will play Joe “Exotic” Schreibvogel, the convicted felon and big cat owner in Oklahoma whose rivalry with Carole Baskin, the owner of Big Cat Rescue would become the subject of many a podcast and TV series…

That’s not a bad cast, but it could be spiced up a little bit. Here’s who I’d like to see play Joe:

Anyone know how tall Kent Ogle is?

If you were going to correlate the Ogle brothers with the Beatles, Kent Ogle would probably be Ringo.

He's fun, cheery – and although he's never been granted his own nightly opinion piece that alienates viewers and ruins his brand in the name of higher ratings – he keeps a solid beat while reading the teleprompter.

In fact, he's one of the most talented people in his craft. Sure, he's no John Bonham or Keith Moon – that honor belongs to the McCain brothers – but name me another morning anchor with the longevity he's had in this market?

In addition to all that, Kent and Ringo have similar vocal styles:

Leningrad Cowboys: European Store Oklahoma

I was about to embark on the wet walk home from Charcoal Oven last Friday afternoon when I looked down the decaying shopping center to notice windows filled with small paintings of wide-eyed children glaring at me…calling to me in an unknown language. As I peeked up at the newly-installed signage above, it read European Store Oklahoma, 3604 N. May Ave., Suite B.

In Oklahoma City, stores that sell home-goods and housewares from all over Latin America and Asia are commonplace but, if I’m being honest, I’ve never seen one that services formerly Eastern Bloc countries like Russia and so on. Intrigued with the little store in this strip-mall, like the spy who loved me, I slowly entered as an obviously European couple, arms full of goods, were walking out.

Check out the beautiful furniture:
