image for "Brain-Dead" Okie to Star in New Reality Show: R U Smarter Than a Brain-Dead Okie?
Neander Thall, the formerly brain dead Okie

An Oklahoman man, Neander Thall, was declared brain dead by Tulsa Medical Center and Beauty Emporium doctors on July 4, 2005. Just this very week Mr Thall walked out of the hospital under his own powers. Neander's family and friends were there to celebrate their loved one's resurrection.

Neander Thall "died" when he took a bet from friends that he couldn't lick the paint off the lane lines on I-10 outside of Tulsa. Hit by a succession of tractor trailers Neander's friends left him for dead and vowed to return when they sobered up and the traffic slowed to retrieve the road kill.

Dragged to TMCnBE behind a brother-in-law's pick-up, doctors and beauticians declared him brain-dead. Family and friends kept a prayer vigil beside Neander's bed until he started to show signs of life. Before you knew it, family said, that boy was back to his old self. Weeks after his recovery Mr Thall is appearing on his own reality/quiz show where fellow Oklahomans try to prove they are smarter than their Brain dead neighbor.

TV guide warned that the show is slower than paint drying on I-10 lane lines but The Tulsa Tulsalitis TV critic, Okie Skanokie found it as mentally challenging as his last grade in formal schooling, "Which wuz threesies or foursies I thunk?"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
