Don't be too concerned if an armadillo runs beneath your car and commits suicide by leaping up as you pass over it. They just do that.

In most counties it is against the law to reference any university from Oklahoma by name. Especially in North Texas.

That's because they are not worthy to speak the name Oklahoma. The government is afraid the football gods will strike them dead.
