Blake Sheldon co-hosted the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in April 2014, and fellow Okie Miranda Lambert won Best Female Vocalist. I've always felt Country Music would have more of a Community College, rather than an Academy—but I guess its sort of like when an online college calls itself a “University.”
Meanwhile, here’s what was happening on TLO for the month of April:
What We Said: Apparently the theme to this year’s Oklahoma Fashion Week was either “The Devil Wears This Shit” or “Ugly Clothing That Doesn’t Fit Models Very Well.” Seriously, that’s some of the most ridiculous clothing I’ve ever seen. It looks like Lady Gaga got drunk and fucked Knight Rider.
What We Learned: A legit Oklahoma fashion week would probably feature a lot more Tapout shirts, crocs, and muffin-tops.
Best Comment: “I thought the State Fair WAS Oklahoma Fashion Week?” - Rob in ok:
What We Said: Actually, kids are probably more important than potholes, but they’re not more important than fixing potholes. If you gave me the choice between fixing potholes or educating kids, I’d chose teaching kids how to fix potholes.
What We Learned: We learned something, but it probably wasn't as much as people who went to school in literally any other state.
What We Said: "I think I’m going to start incorporating fake Rasmussen polls into our posts. According to a Rasmussen poll, 87% of the people who thought Oklahomans really threatened to secede over a TV show are idiots."
What We Learned: A lot about the universe and black holes and stuff.
Best Comment: "So we aren’t secdeeing??" - Merle
That does it for April, be sure to tune in a few days for a TLO retrospective at May.
