Howdy hey! Hasn’t this week been something terrible? I totally checked and my tarot cards said something about a fish. I don’t even know what that means. There’s a lot of tension in my life caused by politics or tacos.
Did you guys enjoy the best WWE fight of all time? BIDEN VS RPR! Here’s a clip! MAJESTIC!
In Oklahoma, we REALLY love children. “Preborn” or “Unborn” only though. Not living, breathing children. Ew, GET A JOB! So it might explain why we have horrendous infant mortality rates. There are groups like Oklahoma Family Network, OU health Science Center, and the State Department that are trying to change it. Looking into expanding Medicaid, WIC, SNAP, etc.
Speaking of Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), The State of Oklahoma just went and snatched Planned Parenthood from being able to provide those services. Nevermind that they were the only place open on Saturdays for appointments or that it takes 3-4 months (!) to get an appointment at one of the other agencies. WE CARE BOUT BABIEZ (but only if they get their vouchers at a non-papsmearing place!)
So there’s a Reproductive Bill of Rights now? Okay, that’s cool. I mean, thanks famous people!
But wait..one of the famouses is KEVIN BACON. Yeah, the dude who showed the world his hiney in Friday the 13th!
And in “THAT’S RACIST” news, no, Native Americans aren’t just hangin ’round casinos all day, they do know about the right right to vote (Seriously, WTF?) but Al Jazeera has decided differently. Oklahoma has low voter turnout in general. We couldn’t brag about “Being the reddest state in the union” if the turnout were better. SO LAY OFF. Also, the writer has cool observations about Oklahoma on twitter. (Oklahoma has buildings! Kansas has a Chipotle! There’s a pic of Reagan!) BRO, YOU’RE A TERRIBLE TWEETER/WRITER. Maybe you should take up a food blog (Chipotle!) and write about awful food.
(TW) So apparently it’s NOT OKAY to reveal the identity of creepy perverts who like to take pictures of women and post them on Reddit but it’s absolutely okay for the former to happen. Okay, I got it. Gulp… I’m agreeing with GAWKER?
I’m so done. What is with this week? Mercury ain’t even in retrograde!
Here’s a video from this dreamy duo. Wait for the little hip dance that David does about 30 seconds in. MEEEOOWWW
Molly has come to terms with the fact that trollin’ on people makes her feel better. Just check out her twitter.
