We're going to need a really big broom.

Were they planning on using the elephants to see how high their corn gets this summer? For you whippersnappers look up the song "Oh What A Beautiful Morning" from the musical Oklahoma.

Patrolman Johnson said he did not know where the truck came from or where it was headed when it broke down.

Dammit, man, isn't that part of your job, to question people? How many elephants does the OK highway patrol normally see in a given year?

This is why they'll remain just an OK highway patrol. They're not really working toward Good or Excellent.

Note to nursecindy: it looks like it's climbing right up to the sky.

Thanks a lot nursecindy, now I have that song stuck in my head.

@nursecindy: I hate "Oklahoma." I hate hate hate hate hate it. Hate it. Hate every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hate the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hate the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it.
(apologies to Roger Ebert)

I like most older musicals, and I've played in the pit orchestra for several of them at community productions. But not "Oklahoma."

Thus inspiring a new book: BABAR STOPS TRAFFIC AND CONGRESS....

wanderer2575, I don't like Oklahoma either. Rudolph it got stuck in my head too. It really is a small world after all! Bwahahahaha.....

Damn it!

wanderer2575- BUT how do you really feel about musicals?

In some stunning news, "Water For Elephants" is being planned for a Broadway musical. I feel certain they'll really clean up after every performance.

Is Rt. 69 a trunk road...?

If you think "Oklahoma!" is bad, try waking up to a travel alarm that turns out to play "Oh What a Beautiful Morning" with a hangover. (That travel alarm as regifted since I didn't have the energy to throw it out the window.)

But what about the "Surrey With the Fringe on Top" scene in WHEN HARRY MET SALLY... ?

How did the elephants notify the driver that their floors were collapsing?
(Hugo Ok is where a bunch of circuses have winter quarters.)

Wanderer ~ Not even the "Poor Jud is Dead" song? You gotta like a song that is trying to get a guy to off himself.

I should have clarified that I meant Oklahoma the musical, not just "Oklahoma" the song. As soon as it starts with "Oh, the farmer and the cowman should be freeeeeiiiiinds," I want to throw up. Rodgers and Hammerstein should be dug up and shot.

I'm totally in agreement with that sentiment. Mind you, I do feel that everything's up to date in Kansas City...
