2013 TLO Year in Review: January
9:30 AM EST on December 16, 2013
Over the next couple weeks I'll be reviewing The Lost Ogle's most viewed stories for each month of 2013. It'll be like Best Week Ever, only funny. You'll also be able to vote on which story you enjoyed the most.
If you ask me, 2013 can't come to a close soon enough. Worst. Year. Ever. If it's true what doesn't kill you makes you stronger than I'm a one man Power Team only without the weird religious stuff and pile of broken bats. "How should we tell people about God?" "Hmmm. Maybe break a bunch of shit with our hands?"
We'll start with January. Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" was the number one song in January 2013. Nothing quite captures the essence of a great breakup song like a video where a hobbit beats up that hot girl from Transformers all while making an arsonist very happy.
Here are the Top Six TLO Posts from January:
What We Said: "If your goal is to not destroy the arts in Oklahoma, then why introduce legislation that would help destroy the arts in Oklahoma? That would be like saying “Hey, I don’t want to burn down the barn, but let me go toss a lit match in that field of very tall dry grass that’s located right next to the barn.”
What We Learned: Being an art hating, narrow minded, Glenn Beck disciple is still easier to handle than Sally Kern, Mary Fallin and James Lankford all representing Oklahoma in some way. Yeesh.

What We Said: "I received a Facebook message from a Mole at 3:45pm informing me that Aubrey was “fired” and a release was being issued at 4:00, but before I could check and/or verify it, Chesapeake issued a release stating that Aubrey was “retiring.” Yeah, “retiring.”
What We Learned:

Best Comment: "I guess I’m most worried about…. will Kate Upton still be around? Seriously." -Dustin
What We Said: "For what it’s worth, Kendrick Perkins still has about $20-million left on his contract with the Thunder. If your husband makes that kind of cash, you should probably go ahead and pay for your crummy manicure."

Best Comment: "Does this mean we’re a big league city now?"- Mars 45

Still., I thought by now we would all be living in a socialist hellscape where we are forced to be Muslim, no one has guns and America was destroyed all because of Obama. Wait. None of that happened because it's preposterous? That's what I thought.
Fun Fact: Jared Scott is celebrating Christmas in Gitmo.
Best Comment: "I got sucked in and argued with [anti-Obama people] for a while. I finally gave up. It was like punching farts out of a dead mule."- Marlene
