Having finished two other contributions to the Weird series — one for Arizona and one for my home state of Texas — creators Mark Moran and Mark Sceurman gave me the option of which state I'd like to tackle next. It would be Oklahoma, for sure. I wanted to show that there was plenty of the bizarre and exceptional on both sides of the Red River.
And I was not disappointed in what I found. Weeks driving across the Sooner State turned up spook lights, ancient Viking ruins, a cemetery dedicated to carnies, a contemporary ghost town isolated on its own island, the world's largest pair of hands and Hitler's teapot, just for starters. And things got strange from there.
