Oklahoma is – of course – the most dangerous place in the US to celebrate the 4th of July…


Stick a feather in our hat and call it macaroni!

Earlier this week, a clickbait state ranking site thing confirmed what everyone in Oklahoma has known for years: we're the most badass, rockin' and dangerous place to celebrate the 4th of July in America!


Oklahoma has been ranked the most dangerous state during the Fourth of July, according to a study.

According to the home security website A Secure Life, the Sooner State is considered to be the most dangerous state during Independence Day because of the high wildfire risk and a high rate of traffic deaths during the holiday weekend. The study created the ranking based on each state's fire and road accident risk.

Oregon, Mississippi, California and West Virginia round out the five states considered to be the most dangerous.

That's pretty cool. It's nice to see Gov. Stitt's efforts to make us a Top 10 State are still going strong. Maybe in December we'll be named the most depressing place in America to celebrate Christmas!

Seriously, who is surprised by this? Oklahoma celebrates the 4th of July like it's our official state purge. I think we all knew a kid or two in school who either drowned in a lake or blew their hand off with a cherry bomb. In fact, I recently read a report that one in seven Oklahoma high school brah douchebags will lose an eye in Roman candle fights alone. It's what makes the holiday fun.
