Chicken-Fried News: Curses!

Dammit, Oklahoma City. Why is it that every time we teeter on the edge of Big League City status, something happens to nullify the progress we have made?

For instance, you know that sweet new outdoor music venue we have, OKC Downtown Airpark? Well, apparently we can’t even have concerts there anymore without upsetting local residents, which is exactly what happened after a June performance by rappers Lil Boosie and YG.

The sad part? Most of the complaints weren’t even of the “Keep down that racket!” variety; they were the classic “Watch your language, mister!” kind.

“I don’t like that language. I don’t use it in my daily life,” neighborhood resident and chief complainer John Muzingo told KOCO 5 News. “If it was in their backyard, they wouldn’t like it either.”

Oh really?

Something tells us they wouldn’t mind.

Similarly, Edwin Meza, 14, doesn’t quite understand this whole “concert” thingy.

“Most of the concert was just swearing and cussing,” Meza said. “The music, it gets very loud and it lasts for a long while.”

Yes, Edwin. That’s what happens at these things. Sometimes people even do drugs and get naked. It’s pretty awesome.
