And the winner of our 2014 Oklahoma State Fair Photo contest is…

One cool thing about this blogging gig is that I don’t have a boss I don’t like named Karen telling me what to do. That being said, one big drawback to the job is that I don’t have a boss I don’t like named Karen to remind me when I do something stupid like forget to name […]

2014 Oklahoma State Fair Photo Contest: Finals

If our Oklahoma State Fair Photo Contest ever has a soundtrack, I think it should be written and performed by the local band Chronik Kondition. Here they are performing at this year’s fair. If they turn us down, we could always go with MC Shit Stainz. Remember him? He was a semi-finalist in this year’s contest. We were […]

2014 Oklahoma State Fair Photo Contest: Semi-Finals (Part 1)

bench warmers state fair photo contest

Welcome to the semi-finals of our 2014 Oklahoma State Fair Photo Contest. It’s the annual event where we put aside our differences, bond as one, and mercilessly make fun of deep-fried fair freaks in order to get a cheap laugh and feel better about our own sad, pathetic, totally normal, socially acceptable lives.

This year, we received only 150 or so entries, and a couple of them are all-timers. Before we get to the photos…

Snark Disclaimer. Once again, if you stumbled across this link on your niece’s Facebook page and are easily offended and politically correct, I should warn you that The Lost Ogle is an irreverent satirical news and entertainment website. It’s not for everyone, and should not be taken seriously if you’re nice, kind-hearted and only have nice things to say about people. We started this contest seven years ago as an absurd alternative to other State Fair Photo contests. If you take everything way too seriously, and poking fun at our state’s fine people and Walmart culture bothers you, stop reading now and head over to The Pioneer Woman. Similar to our state fair photo contest, most of that site’s content is also depressing. It’s just nicer.

With that being said, here are the first 9 semi-finalists. Check them out and vote for your three favorite after the jump. You can view the other 9 semi-finalists by clicking here.

The Sniper

It’s always good to see a young Chuck Norris enjoying his first Oklahoma State Fair. I bet he was there with his youth militia group. I wonder what he’s shooting at? I hope it’s either a clown, carnie or terrorist. Those things are scary.

Shredder

Fashion statements like this happen every day at Crossroads Mall, so it’s not that weird, but still, did she just make out with Edward Scissorhands? Zing! I doubt it. She was probably in the process of ripping off her shirt like Hulk Hogan, but ran out of breath and had to stop because her bra was cutting off her circulation.

Get your camera phones ready. The Oklahoma State Fair begins tomorrow…

The 107th annual Oklahoma State Fair opens it gates and doors tomorrow. The theme of this year’s extravaganza is “Holy F*ck, the State Fair starts tomorrow?!?” Seriously, doesn’t it seem like the fair has kind of snuck up on everyone like Joe Dorman at bachelorette party? Maybe it’s due to the August-like weather, poor marketing, […]

2012 Oklahoma State Fair Photo Contest (Finals)

In a way, the finals of our Oklahoma State Fair Photo Contest reminds me of NCAA Men’s Basketball Final 4. It’s kind of anti-climatic. Sure, it’s cool to see who wins and everything, but the real fun is that first week when we get to see the field, pick our favorites and watch a Cinderella or two […]

Here are some of the State Fair pics that didn’t make the cut…

As I mentioned, we received about 150 entries for the Oklahoma State Fair Photo Contest. Out of those 150, only 20 made the semi-finals and were published on the site. Since this year’s field was so deep, I figured I’d go ahead and post some of the other ones we enjoyed — like the one […]
