GIF a little bit


Gazette staff February 20th, 2013

Sometime in October 2012, a local pop-culture savant began to stave off the workday doldrums with Internet funny. While his real identity is a mystery, he calls himself Dale Rancho. (Get it? “On the go? Try Del Rancho.”) His OKCOMG website at okcomg.tumblr.com, a mecca of iconic and satirical Oklahoma-centric imagery.

“I often find myself screaming or laughing,” Rancho told Chicken-Fried News. “I used to fire off various rants on Facebook that, while satisfying, didn’t endear myself to friends and non-friends.”

After he lost his Facebook outlet — and an ugly bout of defriending — he was tumbling about on tumblr.com when he had an epiphany. Or a GIFphany, if you will.

“[I] saw various bloggers using GIFs to illustrate various perspectives and perversions. I saw a few that reflected their respective locales and thought Oklahoma City deserved its own,” he said. “A big-time city deserves a bigtime tumblr.”

He’s already weighed in on things like local legislators’ response to Obamacare, the views atop the Devon tower and the “retirement” of Chesapeake Energy CEO Aubrey McClendon.

“Say or do something stupid and I will find you,” Rancho vowed. “This is especially true if you are any position of power.”

You heard it, OKC. In the meantime, prepare to guffaw. Or GIFfaw, if you will.
