Fat to fit


CFN

Gazette staff
Not long ago, Oklahoma City was considered one of the nation’s premier suppliers of fat-assery. In 2013, those stereotypes have now (quite literally) run their course.

Bad aim


CFN

Gazette staff
Some things just don’t belong in some places. Put the wrong thing in the wrong place and — blammo! — you’re looking at a quarter of a century in the clinker.

Pooping Tom


CFN

Gazette staff
A Tulsa man found himself SOL early last week, and all because nobody believed his story about being stuffed into a septic tank against his will with no other recourse but to watch people relieve themselves in the bathroom.

In _____ we trust


CFN

Gazette staff
Hobby Lobby’s famous — or infamous, some might say — full-page “holiday message” advertisements propagating Christian principles run in newspapers nationwide, including its hometown daily, The Oklahoman. This Independence Day was no different.

Google warming


CFN

Gazette staff
We all know that politics can make for strange bedfellows (so can Jack and Coke, but we digress). Still, even the complexities of politics barely explain the bedfellowing of U.S. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Tulsa, and Google, one of the more environmentally conscious companies on the planet — a planet that, according to Inhofe, is not burning up, thank you very much, move along, nothing to see here.

'Wrath' of the titan


CFN

Gazette staff
Because that hack filmmaker John Ford didn’t do it right in 1940, Lincoln’s Steven Spielberg reported- ly is all hot to produce a new movie adaptation of John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath. Published in 1939, the classic novel follows the Joads, a Sallisaw farming family forced by the Dust Bowl to leave Oklahoma.

Hair today


CFN

Gazette staff
What do you get a guy who has everything? For Denver Bronco and Oklahoma City native Wes Welker, it’s hair transplants.

Slam-dunk romance (not KD’s)


CFN

Gazette staff
Kate Upton has a thing for athletes. Some (Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander) better than others (Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez), but athletes, nonetheless. While those fleeting relationships never amounted to much (aside from chromosome nirvana), the swimsuit model seems to have added another trophy to her case: NBA All-Star and Oklahoma City native Blake Griffin.

Going after Google


CFN

Gazette staff
Financial crisis, shminancial crisis. Did you know Google profits from every single play a Harlem Shake video gets on YouTube? Is that the America you want for your children?

Truth-telling TV


CFN

Gazette staff
Usually, it seems as if Oklahomans are featured on national television for one of three reasons: weather, methamphetamine and basketball.

Hoops love


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma City Thunder megastar Kevin Durant’s engagement to WNBA star Monica Wright appears to be a slam dunk. No overtime period with this couple.

The Olympic spirit?


CFN

Gazette staff
Didja hear Tulsa wants to host the 2024 Olympics? Well, if you haven’t before, now you have. And it’s not as crazy as you might think.

Looking for love in OkC


CFN

Gazette staff
Single, broke and looking for love? Sorry. Can’t help you there. But take solace in the fact that — cue Michael Jackson song — you are not alone.

’Crack down


CFN

Gazette staff
As a POTUS-playing Bill Pullman put it so eloquently in the 1996 razzle-dazzler Independence Day, “We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on. We’re going to survive. Today, we celebrate our independence day!” Heck, that’s rousing enough for us to reach for our (illegal) box of Roman candles, burst out into a chorus of “American, F--k Yeah” (from the movie Team America, which does not star Pullman but does contain deviant puppet sex) and demonstrate our love of country by shooting one another with flaming balls of fire.
