Five Ways to Make Those Green Scooters Less Dweeby

Ladies, gentlemen, and people-folk, Oklahoma City needs to step up our game. It turns out all those lime green scooters that litter the corners of OKC and Norman have not been being used to their full potential.

In case you haven’t seen it, check out this video from Missouri:

Come on, Oklahoma. We cannot be shown up by Missouri. Again. According to US News & World Report – they beat us on almost all major fronts as a state – quality of life, education, fiscal stability and pretty much every other criterion. We win in Crime and Corrections. But by all the gods on Olympia, they will not outsmart us when it comes to multi-purposing electric scooters. They have discovered the furniture dolly application. We can do better, Oklahoma.

Here’s a starter list of inventive ways to make use of the Lime Scooters…

5 Best OKC Police Chases of March 2019 (so far)

Writing for TLO on the surface seems like all glitz and glamour, but most of the gig consists of peeling through local news in the search for anything interesting enough to write about. This part of the process is generally very depressing, but occasionally entertaining.

While doing my daily deep dive through the usual slog of awful crime stories, editorials from energy company execs, and the other soul-sucking articles that flood my local news feed, I noticed a trend. Maybe it’s a slow news cycle, or perhaps spring fever has car jackers feeling frisky, but I noticed an inordinate amount of stories about police chases over the last several weeks.

Today, we present to you a power ranking of the most thrilling, dangerous, and interesting March police chases:

7 Better OKC Thunder Jersey Sponsors than Love’s

As you may have heard, the Oklahoma City Thunder recently signed an advertising deal with Love’s Travel Stop & Country Stores that put the company’s heart logo on the front of each players’ jerseys.

Here it is in case you haven’t seen it.

Because it sticks out like a turd on the floor of a Love’s bathroom, the patch has naturally received its fair share of criticism. On social media, most people have lamented its size, clipart feel, or the fact that a highway truck stop is the best the Thunder could do for a jersey sponsor. The Thunder players must agree, because they haven’t won a game since it was unveiled.

As a result, Hayley and I thought it would be fun to come up with seven alternatives that would be better fits…

TLO Restaurant Review: The Diner

I had gone to Norman early that Saturday to meet up with my brother and nephew for lunch before taking them to see the latest Marvel movie. When I suggested eating at the Diner for their all-day breakfast, it was roundly shot down, mostly because my nephew only likes French fries from McDonald’s.

So there I stood, in front of the Diner, with a mostly small-time decision: to dine in this historic eatery all by my lonesome or to give up everything I culinarily hold dear and head on down to McDonald’s for some sup-par grub based around the uneducated whims of a 5-year-old…

Sorry, kid.
