Only in Oklahoma #4--Grapes of Wrath

I snapped this pic while driving down Peoria the other kind of the 'happening' part of Peoria where all the trendy clubs and restaurants are. How 'bout this fella...and all his mattresses? Really? REALLY? What is there, five, six? And is that a dog kennel under all those mattresses? Man...

Come on, don't tell me that when you saw that picture that you didn't think Grapes of Wrath. You know you did. Maybe the driver of that truck is Mr. Joads great grandson. Whatever...only in Oklahoma.

"Okie use' ta mean you was from Oklahoma. Now it means you're a dirty son-of-a-bitch. Okie means you're scum. Don't mean nuthin' itself, it's the way they say it." --Grapes of Wrath, Chapter 18.

Keep it classy, Oklahoma!

Name That Tune!

Ok, I was super excited that we had some guesses and no Googling yesterday (thank you Korinne). The first person to get it right was, again, Impulsive Addict. Yesterday's song was Our Lips are Sealed by the Go Go's!! (but, Korinne, you made a good effort and guess, I can see why you thought it was the song you said). Yay, Go Go's! So here's today's score:

Everyone else=0

Here's today's lyric:
"Well you like to drink a cold one on the weekend and get a little loud. You wanna say I'm sorry or I love ya, but you don't know how."

Name that tune (I'll 'fess up, to mix things up and use different genres, I had to Google this song, because I don't really listen to this genre).

Oh no then I bet it's COUNTRY and I don't know much about country unless it's Carrie Underwood or Taylor Swift. DARN IT. I don't even have a guess.

I'm lovin' the truck full of mattresses. Only in Oklahoma...right? Geez.

Yay! I'll pretend you did country just for me. It's This is Country Music by my that handsome skinny fella Brad Paisley. I love this song, it's great to sing loud in the car until the other carpool moms look at you crazy!

Note to self: stop singing once you see the crossing guard, you're too close to the school.

I saw that same guy in Kansas a few weeks ago. He's on vacation and brought some mattresses with him. He's headed back to the PRK today I think.
