Carrie Coppernoll: Week's headlines are too much to handle

Oklahoma has gone insane. The headlines this week have included a bestiality arrest, a nearly-naked woman at the airport and a philandering senator. OK, maybe the philandering senator isn't that weird.

Parole? Denied.

This is the kind of week where exciting feats don't really get a lot of attention. The Thunder beat the New Jersey Nets without Kevin Durant in triple overtime.

It was so intense that even KD couldn't watch Jeff Green shoot those three free throws. But that game — one of the most exciting ever — wasn't as big of a deal because everyone was too busy talking about the nearly-naked frequent flier, the bestiality couple, the murderer on Facebook and the state senator scandal.

And then a tiny, partially blind horse went missing. Tiny horse. Partially blind. Missing.

Officials worry Short Stuff might have even been stolen from his horse rescue in Jones. Even teeny, tiny adorable horses aren't safe this week. But don't worry. Short Stuff was found.

Then things got weird. Mary Fallin hung out with President Barak Obama on Thursday and agreed with him about some things. Sen. Tom Coburn proposed a plan to cut the deficit while looking like Col. Sanders. And it was 70 degrees outside.

But the week isn't over. I'm expecting more calamity before today is through. I'm talking stampeding llamas, naked ladies at bus stops and arsonists on Twitter. Who knows what miniature animals will vanish by the end of the day?

I'm ready for Sunday. This week is too much for me to handle.
