oooooooooooooooooklahoma (the state, not the song)

I live in the middle of a Jeff Foxworthy routine.
1. Toby Keith is Oklahoman of the Year.
2.Senator Wants Boxing Gloves on Chickens

Yep, boxing gloves on chickens. This is the single most significant thing in Oklahoma to this guy. Of course we need a quote:

State Sen. Frank Shurden, a longtime defender of cockfighting, is suggesting that roosters be given little boxing gloves so they can fight without bloodshed. The proposal is in a bill the Democrat has introduced for the legislative session that begins Feb. 7.

"Who's going to object to chickens fighting like humans do? Everybody wins," Sen. Frank Shurden said.

and another
"Let the roosters do what they love to do without getting injured," Shurden said.

There's so much more. Go read the article.
On the brighter side, at least we don't have this problem. (You know you want to look).

At least it's snowing. Although that provides a whole other set of issues for Oklahomans.
