Hey intern Bryce here coming to you from The Oklahoman newsroom. Today is a special day. A day to be happier than usual. A day to look your best. Today is Tie Tuesday. It is a personal holiday I am celebrating this summer to make an otherwise forgettable day of the week a day to look forward to. Many men in the office sport a tie daily to work, but I do not, thus creating the special occasion on Tuesday. If my fellow interns laugh a little more, are a little less stressed, or smile just a few more times than Tie Tuesday has done its job.
On this inaugural Tie Tuesday I found some headline gold throughout the day on NewsOK. This headline caught my eye this afternoon: Women arrested after former Beach Bums Bikini Bar boss is stabbed. That led to this riveting tale: http://newsok.com/women-arrested-after-former-beach-bums-bikini-bar-boss-is-stabbed/article/3685785. You can’t make this stuff up and I applaud the use of alliteration by the owner of Beach Bums Bikini Bar. He obviously knew that would look good in a headline someday. Second headline that blew my mind: Teen recovering after spear removed from his brain. Here is a picture of said spear in brain.
There was also a prostitution bust that took down 11 people. Not a great headline here, but within the story are a series of mug shots. Sometimes those can be better than the story : http://newsok.com/11-arrested-in-oklahoma-city-prostitution-sting/article/3685822.
The first Tie Tuesday is in the books and people have remarked that I look a little more happy today. We will let you be the judge of that.
I encourage everyone to find their own Tie Tuesday that helps them through a sometimes monotonous work week!
