Oklahoma - The Pride of The United States

Found this tidbit online from Reuters about our favorite state to the south (if you are in Iowa) or to the north (if you are in Texas):
"Oklahoma tourism officials have recalled about 200,000 brochures with images of activities that may have seemed uninviting to some travelers, such as cow manure tossing and re-enacting Confederate battles, officials said on Wednesday.  The pamphlet, called 2005 Annual Events Guide, featured events and activities throughout Oklahoma. It was also riddled with spelling, grammatical and factual mistakes.

'We discovered the material in the event guide was culturally insensitive and contained errors,' said state tourism director Rob Gray.

One item that may not have helped was a photo of an event in which lumps of cow manure are thrown as a part of a contest in the town of Beaver, in western Oklahoma.

Another photo tourism officials found potentially objectionable showed Civil War re-enactors in Confederate uniforms firing cannons underneath a Confederate battle flag."

What's the best thing to ever come out of Oklahoma?

Southbound and Northbound Interstate 35.
