Some Disturbing News About Carrie Underwood.

***WARNING***

Today's blog may disturb you. I will manage to firmly prove once and for all that a certain country music star is probably both a witch and a terrorist. If finding out that country music stars are both witches and terrorists is something that is likely to disturb you, please close this page. 

I am not a superstitious man. 



When I woke up this morning, I had a thought run through my head, and it demanded to be examined, studied, and investigated to it's fullest extent, knowing that I had a duty to you, the reader, and to my country.

As most of you know, it has been quite dry in Oklahoma. Dry, hot, and humid. In fact, I haven't been able to step outside and NOT start sweating since early May. By the time I get done walking anywhere, it looks as though I've run a marathon. Being heavyset, people often know that I haven't run a marathon and that I'm just fat and out of shape. To those people, I say this: round is a shape. Suck it.

I don't know how many of my readers are familiar with country music star Carrie Underwood. If you've lived in Oklahoma for longer than ten minutes or you've ever watched American Idol, you'll know her as the winner of that show in 2005, catapulting her from anonymity to superstardom virtually overnight.

I have no opinion on Ms. Underwood's music. Some of it is catchy and fun, and other times it can be about Jesus driving your car for you. But lately, radio has been playing a song of hers called "Blown Away."



The tune is, as I mentioned, catchy and fun, and the song is about a young lady who watches her mean father die in a tornado while he's passed out drunk and she's in the fraidy-hole. Sort of a "what goes around comes around" story. At least she's not slashing anyone's tires, right?

This album was released on May 1st, 2012.

It just so happens that I have a a rainfall summary from the Oklahoma Climatological Survey that runs from May 3, 2012 to today's date. This picture illustrates the amount of rain we've had in Oklahoma compared to a "normal" year. The only reason I quoted up "normal" is because as an Oklahoman, I realize we've had exactly six "normal" years since statehood.

This shows it's been dryer than 
As you can see, it's bad. Terribly dry. Crops have suffered, lawns have suffered, and small, pale, Irish children like my poor niece cannot walk outside without having to be pumped full of fluids and slathered with sunscreen first. I've personally lost more skin to peeling this summer than I lost to bicycle crashes in the early nineties.

If you listened to the song in the video earlier, or you've heard it on the radio, you know that the lyrics feature the quote: "There's not enough rain in Oklahoma, to wash the sins out of this house." 

"There's not enough rain in Oklahoma."

"There's not enough rain in Oklahoma."

"There's not enough rain in Oklahoma."

Folks, hopefully I don't have to spell this out any clearer for you, but I will. The album came out on May 1st. Since May 3rd, we've had a near record lack of rain fall. In fact, the average has been almost seven inches below normal. Are you understanding? 

Carrie Underwood is a witch.

She has obviously released this album and this song as a curse on the state of Oklahoma. As long as radio stations keep playing it, the drought will last, and Oklahoma will eventually dry up and become the next Arizona. Only it won't be a dry heat. It will be a "Travis doesn't get off the couch because anytime he moves he ruins clothes with his copious sweat" kind of heat. 

Seen here at an awards performance in full witch garb, admitting that I'm right. 

If I can be proved wrong on this, let me know. I'm pretty sure the science behind it is 100% real, and so it can't be wrong. I suppose the final word would be to see if she weighs more than a duck.

The next and final charge I will level at Carrie is a bit more circumstantial, but it might appeal to the conspiracy theorist in all of you like it did to me. 

While perusing the data for my expert scientific research and eventual proof of Carrie witchcrafting Oklahoma a drought, I came across a startling revelation. Take a look at a screenshot of the survey. 


Looks normal, eh? 
Wrong. Look again.

This gives me the goosebumps, y'all. 
Is Carrie Underwood a terrorist as well as a witch? Did she have a hand in 9/11? I'll leave that up to Governor Jessie Ventura and the Supreme Court to decide. But after singing songs about destroying vehicles and watching people die in tornados, let's just say I have a heavy suspicion. 

I'm just laying the facts out for you people. Take them and run. And I didn't even have time to mention what she did to Tony Romo and the Cowboys. 



*All charges leveled against Carrie in this blog are of course based on nothing but pure scientific research, but at the same time, I am not actually accusing her of being a witch or a terrorist. I'm adding this for legal reasons, which really seems as though I have a grand opinion of myself, thinking she might actually see this. Carrie, if you read this, I love you. Marry me.
