In case you didn’t know, our great leader honorable Governor Kevin Stitt is on a “business trip” this week to glorious Azerbaijan.
For the gumshoes who didn’t play or watch Where In The World is Carmen San Diego as a kid, Azerbaijan is not a hot new ski resort in New Mexico, but a flyover country in the mid-section of Europe and Asia. It’s kind of like the Oklahoma of Euro-Asia. The only difference is that instead of its population being 97% Evangelical Christian, they’re 97% Muslim.
Naturally, there are a lot of questions about Stitt’s visit. The first and most natural being “Why?” I checked Trip Advisor to search for the answers, but it looks like the country’s not known for its tourism.
Here’s how Stitt’s office explained the trip to their mouthpieces at The Tulsa World:
As I ran down the list of seemingly short list of restaurants in Norman to possibly review, I came to the realization that I really didn’t feel like eating at any of them. Some were serving boring food with a boring atmosphere, some were trying to be too corporate with a hefty price tag and some, well, you could just tell they wouldn’t be here in a couple of months because of both reasons.
The Lost Ogle still doesn’t get any respect.
Late last night, we were notified by the Oklahoma City Thunder that despite the very comprehensive and enticing package we put together to secure naming rights for Oklahoma City’s arena, the franchise would be going with an “offer they couldn’t refuse” from local tech giant Paycom.
