I’ve got to ask you @OkieFlyer , what the hell kind of **** show y’all got going on out there?
We started watching that tonight. Saw parts 1 and 2.
My morning sports radio guys suggested it.
A reviewer said it’s “...like watching a slow-motion car crash, but only if that car crashed into a jet plane and then both tumbled into an oil tanker.”
Lol, my wife used to volunteer with a wildlife sanctuary with big cats/wolves/etc. back in high school. Even some of her senior pics were posing while holding a Tiger cub or something similar, lol. One of the former owners was named Joe and had a fairly similar train wreck of a personal life, so she has been getting asked a ton if Joe Exotic was who she worked with ever since this Tiger King show went viral.
My family went to his sanctuary a few years back. The kids loved it. MY kids got to hold a baby tiger, Kangaroo, and others.
Now there were about 50 of us parents / kids in the audience and Joe says "I'm gonna give you my business card" and starts tossing condoms with his face on the wrapper to the crowd.
He was so "Unique" that after we visited, we started researching him and found the video of him marrying two men, and a lot of legal battles.
While we were visiting, he told us PETA had been burning and poisoning his cats trying to get the place shut down.
So it was an acid trip but getting to see a Lyger in person was insane. That thing had to be 12 feet tall.
At any rate, out of morbid curiosity we researched him (He was really weird) so when some of this news broke we weren't overly surprised.
Do you still have the condom?
There is one on eBay right now. Bid was over 500 last I checked.

Holy crap! No.
As soon as I saw someone next to me catch a business card, I decided not to make an effort to get one.
My wife got me to watch it, so we binged it the last few nights. It's really crazy
I had read a story about him in Texas Monthly... I was thinking if you wrote a story like this, people would be telling you to tone it down because nobody would believe it's real!
Good think Ligers don't exist in the wild!! 922 lbs!
That looks more like a cougar. Equally dangerous, especially to the checkbook.
Yeah, but look at that belly.
Started up last night. This is what I assume a "basic day" is like in the so-far featured states of Oklahoma, Indiana, and especially Florida.
Looks like that Liger had better switch to skim milk....
Joe Exotic is "... the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.”
I think everyone on the show is equally crazy. I agree that it’s like watching a slow moving train wreak turn into a nuclear disaster.
How many of you think she killed her husband?
indeed. Classic black widow.
Classic black widow.... with a bunch of man-eating tigers!
You tell him.
Dude, I refuse to watch that crap!!! Joe Exotic is a household name around here, given that he's only about 30 miles down the road, but he is absolutely not well thought of. I am inconceivably ashamed that the people of the world will be associating this psycho with my fair state. I'm quite content with him rotting in a cell, and I would like to plead with the people of PoA to just ignore this Tiger "King" rage. I'm not sure which epidemic worse, Covid-19 or Tiger King. I can tell which one of the two I'd rather have inside me. It ain't Joe, although I'm sure he'd love the opportunity.
I would also like to point out that he's from Kansas.
Andrew, just having fun with because I knew you would have an opinion. You didn’t disappoint.
And fed him to the tigers. She’s got the eyes of crazy!!!
And her voice! So slow, so deliberate in her speech. Sounds psychotic.
My opinion of oklahoma prior to that little binge-watch was:
1. small-minded narrow-eyed rural types
2. coal-rolling rednecks
3. cops who delight in a "zero tolerance" speeding policy
4. because god said so
I'm not sure if the show improved or detracted from that prior opinion. It just broadened my mind enough to accept that of course it's possible to have a gay yosemite sam who runs a meth zoo and can gain 19% of the gubernatorial nomination. "Neat"
Sounds like you have plenty of experience with being small of mind.
I’ll maybe check it out. Just downloaded season 3 of “Ozark”, gets good reviews.
I grew up in Ohio, started my professional career after college, and my first job with the company moved me and my then-fiance (now wife) to Oklahoma City. Our experience there was wonderful... cool town, awesome people, and actually a very beautiful state (I had the whole state as a sales territory). We've lived all over the country now, and we frequently comment how nice a place to live Oklahoma was.
I enjoyed the series overall... my thoughts:
1) The average "Joe" shouldn't be allowed to have tigers or other wild (and potentially dangerous) animals (maybe just accredited zoos)
2) No doubt in my mind she killed her husband
3) Her new husband is one strange "cat"
4) Seems like ol' Joe got set up, but prison might be the best place for him anyway
5) Kind of sad that there are that many folks who are "drifter" types that fall under the spell of the Joe Exotics of the world... those poor souls were eating free meat from the back of a Walmart meat disposal truck
I married a Sooner that was born and raised just outside of OKC. I can tell you that your thought process on this is very incorrect and ignorant.

Wow. I feel like, I was just there.
Look at those tails.
Andrew, I "liked" schmoo's comment because I thought it was funny, but I'm quite sure OK is a wonderful place, with millions of amazing Americans (no sarc in this, either)
I think better of Oklahoma. Always had good luck in the Indian casinos. I also like how quickly you can drive through your handle!
I thought length was more important than girth?
In 1980, I drove a car across country from Boston to New Mexico.
I stopped in Elk City, OK for the night. Tried to check into a Ramada Inn, they wouldn't take me because I was under the age of 25, and suggested I stay across the street.
So, I drove across the street and checked in to this seedy little motel. I asked the owner/manager for a "wake up call at 6AM".
I went back to the Ramada bar for a beer. I am sitting at the bar and said to the guy next to me "I am from Boston"... he said "I wouldn't brag about that if I were you".
Meanwhile, back at the Motel... at 6 AM, I heard a key sliding into the lock, the door opened and the biggest woman I have ever seen in my life yelled "WAKE UP !!".
Four years later, I met this guy at a bank I was working for in New York City. He was from Norman, OK... turns out his Dad owned the Ramada...
I've traveled quite a bit in my lifetime. I can say for fact that there are:
small-minded, narrow-eyed, rural type coal-rolling, mouth breathing, cousin' ****in' rednecks in every state I've ever been to.
Supposedly the Seth Wadley dealerships are selling out of hats because of this. $3k plus worth since Friday.
Well, this settles it:
