Earlier today, a petition requesting Mary Fallin change the name of Durant, Oklahoma to Westbrook made the rounds on the Internet. So far, it has over 300 supporters.

Here are the details:

Ladies and gentlemen, the great state of Oklahoma has been betrayed. As many of you know, Kevin Durant has left our state, torn out our hearts, and left our beloved Oklahoma City Thunder in depleted shape. All of this after even being offered a cabinet position for the State of Oklahoma. It is because of this heinous action that I believe the State of Oklahoma has a responsibility to change the name of the City of Durant to Westbrook, the man who is loyal, whom we believe in, and who will lead our team to glory. Yes, it is understood that the city Durant was not named after the evil Kevin Durant, but it is just another hideous reminder of what happened to our community. Support the Cause. #WestbrookOK.

This is a great idea! While we're at it, I say we petition the Governor to change the name of Picher to Singler. We should also try to convince Cameron Payne to change his name to Cameron Wayne-Payne. He'd instantly become my favorite player.

Because we live in an over-sensitive world where dumb people can't spot a joke, some folks are upset by the idea:

durant oklahom
idiots

If you ever wonder why Oklahoma leaders elect such stupid people to public office, hop on Facebook. You'll quickly know why.
