Seriously. Nobody’s better. Just ask anyone. If you don’t believe us, check any social media outlet.

There’s this thing out there called the HeyLets Self-Promotion Index, and Oklahoma ranks No. 8 “most braggadocious” U.S. state.

Online sharing pros asked 2,500 ’Mericans to participate and rate the quantity of boastful posts. That bitchin’ dinner at that oh-so-special dinner party? Check. Attendance at sold-out concerts? (Justin Timberlake ring a bell?) Check. Mass updates on Thunder games? Check. That promotion? Check.

You get the point. We are damn proud of what we do every day, and we like to share our accomplishments with everyone.

The nation’s most braggadocious state is California, the study shows, where 77 percent of respondents “frequently engage in self-promotion.” Oklahoma clocks in with 64 percent braggartness. (Is that a word? No? Well, we just created it. And we posted it to Twitter.)
