This decidedly animalistic sport is a rowdy remnant from the old Wild West with whippersnapper cowboys, cattlemen, and clowns-all assembled in a round ring of detritus and dung. With nothing better to do on a Saturday night drunk and lonely cowpoke flexed their machismo and challenged their fellow herdsman to compete for the worthiness of mating with the choicest livestock.
To defend their honor and avoid being labeled sniveling cowards they all agreed to contend-and the Rodeo was born! The contest basically involved the sexual assault and/or rape of livestock, mainly horses and cattle. The involvement of a clown was needed to put a friendly face on such an awful event, and to distract the attention of any children who may be attending. Despite the unspeakable level of violent animal cruelty ranchers considered Rodeos to be good clean family entertainment.
