CFN

Gazette staff

Flexible fuzz


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma often gets unfairly portrayed in the media, but then we do something like this and have to wonder if maybe we weren’t asking for it all along. This is the stuff of idiot buddy comedies starring the likes of Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen, except it’s real and we have nobody but ourselves to blame for our tainted image.

Thou shalt not budge ... yet


CFN

Gazette staff
Remember the 10 Commandments monument? You know, the enormous one that seems to scream, “Hey, you! Look at me!” and has graced the lawn in front of the Oklahoma State Capitol since November 2012?

Westbrook to release fashion line


CFN

Gazette staff
As prodigious as he is on the basketball court, Russell Westbrook has made just as many waves off of it. Not because he’s getting in trouble with the law or anything like that, but — let’s face it — the man has style.

Take a number


CFN

Gazette staff
Aaaaand we’ve made another list. Big-league status indeed! In yet another media company’s quest to deliver more bite-sized, easily digestible, scientifically ridiculous and irrelevant information, we have made CNN Money’s list of most stressed cities.

Curses!


CFN

Gazette staff
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?

According to a press release from Timothy Ray Murray, “Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike.”

CFN

Gazette staff
Hobby Lobby’s self-righteous stance on a host of issues ranging from healthcare to same-sex marriage makes it so much fun to highlight the deceptive practices of this Oklahoma City-based company.

A tower in your honor


CFN

Gazette staff
Millennials, you did it again. Not only are you still mooching off your parents and not voting because you’re too busy volunteering with nonprofits, but you’ve also gone and forever altered the OKC skyline.
