McGuinness High School yearbook includes Anne Frank, Hitler quotes on same page…

Late last night, an Ogle Mole emailed us a scan from the 2017 Bishop McGuinness High School yearbook. It’s the fancy private school located on N. Western. If you remember correctly, their students read this site.

The scan was of a page that contained a couple of senior photos, along with some corresponding inspirational quotes. Here’s the first one we received. I’ve hidden the student’s identity because she’s a high school student:

That’s nice. Great selection on the quote! I think the Diary of Anne Frank is the most profound and powerful work from the 20th century. It should be required reading for every American, especially the president.

The Alligator Alley Critters take on the State Budget Crisis

It’s no secret that Oklahoma is in the middle of a severe budget crisis that threatens to cripple our state and leave us without even crutches to walk on. With only hours left to go to find a palpable solution, Oklahoma lawmakers are scrambling to fill a $900 million budget shortfall and fund them teacher pay raises as well. While rumors swirled about a compromise earlier yesterday, come press conference time, Dems had reportedly backed out—with good reason, mind you—sending everyone back to the drawing board to come up with an agreement that works, however slightly, for everyone.

And by everyone, that includes some of the more dank denizens that reside at one of my favorite local haunts, Alligator Alley, 4636 NW 10th Street—the premiere reptile per store in Oklahoma City. I stopped by yesterday afternoon and asked a few of the creepy crawly critters their thoughts on this breaking news. Here’s what they had to say…

“First they want to tax my cigarettes and next thing they’ll want to tax my delicious whole live chickens! How about you politicians take a paycheck cut instead? Why is it we always gotta be the ones to suffer?” – Pepper Gilbart, alligator

“We were so close to fixing this nonsense, but then here comes the Dumb-o-crats, whining about this and that like the precious snowflakes they are. Oh, if I was younger I’d hide right under Inman’s toilet tank and just…no…sorry, that’s not Christian of me to say. I just get so in the flesh about this!” – Nigel Jenson, spider

Oil and Gas Association is throwing a party for Oklahoma lawmakers…

The State House GOP finally got around to releasing a budget yesterday, and as expected, it didn’t receive any Democratic support and failed. As a result, expect a special session of the legislature to try to resolve the budget.

The problem Democrats had with the House budget was that just like the plans offered by the Senate and Mary Fallin, the proposal didn’t raise the crazy-low gross production tax on oil and gas, something that everyone who’s not in the pockets of the energy industry thinks needs to happen.

To reward those loyal servants who will not raise their industries taxes to regional levels, the oil industry is throwing a “celebration” at the Harn Homestead on Lincoln. Here’s an email reminder about the event that Phil Cross posted on Twitter. If you’re a lawmaker or lobbyist, you still have time to make it:

You can now own Richard Tate’s old Impala for $13,500…

Back in September, before Richard and Ryan Tate of Tate Publishing were indicted on various felony charges, Abby Broyles stopped by the Tate offices in Mustang to ask some questions about a Department of Labor investigation into the company.

Sadly, nobody with Tate would talk to Abby. I guess management was too busy shredding documents and hard drives or something like that, so she just took some footage of Richard Tate’s old restored Chevy instead:

Thanks to a tip via the Ogle Mole Network, it looks like Richard’s Chevy can now be yours for only $13,500. Check out this Craigslist ad:

10 Other Scandals That May Rock The Capitol

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been over a month since we’ve had a really good scandal at the Oklahoma Capitol. With only a few days left before the 2017 legislative session transitions into the 2017 special legislative session, I thought it would be fun to speculate about what other scandals may rock the capitol over the next few days.

Please note, these are just wild guesses. They haven’t happened… yet.

1. Josh Brecheen arrested for masturbating to Darwin’s “Origin of Species” in Mardel parking lot.

And you thought Ralph Shortey getting caught in a south side motel room with weed and a 17-year-old male prostitute was hypocritical! Imagine the reaction if Josh Brecheen – an anti-science Christian theocrat – was busted masturbating to Darwin’s “Origin of Species” in a Mardel Parking Lot. Honestly, it wouldn’t surprise me. He seems like the type of guy who would be turned on by sketches of finches.

2. House Rules Committee announces State Rep Marcus McEntire not allowed within 1,000 feet of a school, park or Lens Crafters.

Based strictly on appearances, that seems fair.

3. Drunk Tess Teague uses fire extinguisher to “Make it Snow” at 2017 Sine Die party.

In all fairness, she just thought it was going to be “a little poof.” She’ll do whatever it takes to remain a state rep. She’ll even sweep the floor.
