There’s no fun so wholesome liberals won’t hate it: Mutton busting edition

My girlfriend and I took the trip to the Houston rodeo at Reliant Stadium last weekend. I’d never been to a rodeo before, and I’m still a little bedazzled by the massiveness of the phenomenon. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Picture the county fair, plus a massive concert, plus an arts festival (tenth graders making photorealist paintings — phenomenal!), plus a livestock show, and also, there’s folks riding bulls and racing horses. Cowboy boots and hats and giant belt buckles everywhere.

I have to admit, though, my favorite part of the rodeo was the event called mutton busting. It’s like the rodeo, but for little kids, no more than five or six years old, I’d say. Instead of riding bulls or horses, they ride sheep. It’s just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen: stressed-out sheep running around with earnest toddlers gripping on, their tiny little hands full of wool. I admired the kids’ pluck and courage. They’ll grow up to be fine men. (And there were a few girls in there, too!)

Anyway, it turns out — surprise! — liberals hate mutton busting. Check out the comments at the Huffington Post or ABC News. It stands to reason. Bonald argued once that liberalism is going so far now that it’s becoming anti-friendship, because friendship, after all, is discriminatory, exclusive, and particularist, and these are things against which liberalism has set its face. Is it possible that liberalism is also now becoming anti-fun? Think about it: all this wholesome fun could be distracting these kids from the important things in life, like sodomizing one another.

Plus, think of the sheep!

  1. THis stuff is huge down here in Texas. Lots of fun and good for the kids! They are beginning to have older boys ride miniature bulls as well. Google it and tell me you dont want to relocate!

    • Yes, I’ve lived and worked here about a year and a half now. I wasn’t such a fan at first but my little Texas rose is bringing me around to it.

      • “I wasn’t such a fan at first”

        Really? How come?

        I’ve lived here for such along time that it’s hard to imagine living anywhere else. Then again, I came here as a small child.

        “but my little Texas rose is bringing me around to it.”

        Heh. I understand. The girls here can be spectacular.

      • That is unfortunate. I assume that you live in one of the big cities(I have one in mind, one that I especially detest, but I won’t name it). My home is in one of the mid-sized cities in the northern part of the state. It’s a decent place, mainly suburbia. Not too many degenerate scumbags(as far as I know) and still a fairly conservative region(though not as much as a small town of course).

    I don’t particularly want to think of children sodomising one another, do you? haha

    And now I want to go to a rodeo. Shame I don’t live in the US.

  3. Hah! I just discovered this blog from some other wackadoo (meant as term of endearment) alt-right blog and lo and behold, it sounds like you and I were at the rodeo on the same day — perhaps were seated next to me and my son as we watched the mutton busting as well.

    Keep up the good work and carry on.
