Oklahoma became a state 100 years ago today. The bad part is it spawned Zero U.

You can buy all the beer you want, any time of day, any day of the week, it's just 3.2%. If you want "real" beer you have to get it warm, from the liquor store, before 9:00pm, and never on Sunday.

I know guys who go to Kansas to buy their beer. I can't tell the difference between 3.2 and whatever the strong stuff is.

I like Oklahoma. Its a very pretty state in a flat, scraggly, dusty sort of way. Lots of little towns that still look like little towns, pickup trucks that are older than their drivers and really nice people.

Happy birthday, Oklahoma. If it weren't for you we wouldn't have had The Grapes of Wrath, which I think is just maybe the greatest novel ever written. So I thank you for that.

Wow, that's ****ed up. Now that I think about it most of the drinking I did in OK was in bars so that didn't apply.

It probably applied more than you think. Did you find your piss/buzz ratio heavely wieghted on the side of piss?

JohninGpt
11-16-2007, 07:24 PM
I don't care for the blue laws myself, but I grew up in NE Oklahoma, or "Green Country" where there is hills, and trees, and rivers, and lakes (not out west where you can stand on a bottlecap and see the back of your head) and I can't think of a better place to raise a family. I'm retiring from Uncle Sam's Canoe Club in a few months and plan on moving my family there.

Do the bars serve 3.2 beer as well? I honestly don't remember as it's been a good ten years since I've been down that way. I wasn't as heavy of a drinker back then either. I sure as hell noticed something was up when I bought a six-pack in a grocery store in Colorado a couple years ago.

The only things that really stand out in my mind from my visits to OK were the toll roads (which we have none of in NE) and the signs along the interstate that said "Watching your speed? We are".

JohninGpt
11-16-2007, 07:53 PM

I believe they do, but it's been 20 years since I actually lived there, and when I go to visit family we get drunk at home or the lake/river (on rum or Mo. beer) not at bars. But if it's served cold, it's probably 3.2%.

They may be watching, but the speed limits on the turnpikes are 75, and you probably won't get a ticket for doing 5 over. So if 80 ain't fast enough, you probably need a ticket.

They had a great Centennial celebration. Garth Brooks is completely gray headed. Carrie Underwood is still spectacular. Plus Vince Gill, Reba McIntyre and Patti Page. And 5 Miss Americas. And Johnny Bench. I'm sure Mickey Mantle and Will Rogers would have attended but they are dead. Why no Roy Clark and Gary Busey?

JohninGpt
11-16-2007, 10:39 PM
Why no Roy Clark and Gary Busey?
Roy is really, really old and Gary couldn't find his motor cycle helmet?

Did my former BA classmate Kristen Chenowith show up and sing some broadway musical stuff, Oklahoma maybe?

RJ

I didn't think Roy was that old. I figured he was still pickin' and grinnin'. Busey still comes back every few years to his Hale high school reunions

I know guys who go to Kansas to buy their beer. I can't tell the difference between 3.2 and whatever the strong stuff is.

In college, one of my buddies was particularly worried about consuming 3.2 beer. Though we could get cases really cheap at the local grocery store, my friend didn't want to risk not becoming 100 percent intoxicated. Thus, he called Budweiser for clarification.

According to the experts at Anheuser Busch, if it takes you 12 beers to be sloshed when drinking 5.0 beer, it will take you 13 beers when drinking 3.2 beer. Not a big deal. :toast:

It used to say something like "not more than 5 % alcohol by weight" on the can. So it could be way less than 5%. I can't tell the difference.

You throw your pearls before the swine
Make the monkey blind

Ground beneath me shake
And the news is breaking
