Happy Thanksgiving…here are some Oklahoma trivia questions

11:16 AM EST on November 24, 2011

Thanksgiving is by far the best holiday for grown ups. You get to see family, old friends and it's socially acceptable to eat more food in 24 hours than a Feed the Children kid does in one year, but you don't have to spend money on Christmas presents or try to find a parking spot at the mall. Well, at least you don't until the day after Thanksgiving.

Anyway, we hope you're having a happy turkey day. We hope that the wine is good, the football games are fun and that you're eating dinner with the side of the family that makes the good stuffing. To keep you occupied during that weird hazy lull between the halftime of the Cowboys game to when your Grandma asks if anyone wants turkey sandwiches, here are 15 Oklahoma trivia questions. We always ask a couple of questions like these at the FREE Team Trivia Nights we host at the 51st Street Speakeasy on Tuesdays and O'Connell's on Thursdays at 8:00 (except for tonight). If you're ever bored on one of those nights and want to come see us, please do.
