When good clowns go bad

When I was at the Big Bad Bull Rodeo at the Nevada County Horseman’s arena on Friday, a clown was telling some inappropriate jokes. There were a lot of little kids there, including me, that didn’t need to hear that kind of language.

Some of the jokes were funny. But I really think that the clown and the announcer should think about the jokes that they shouldn’t say.

I really loved the rodeo, and someday I wish I could ride a bull. If that’s the kind of language that the rodeos have to have, I’m not going to come to the rodeos any more, but if you would like to change your language, I would be happy to come back.
