Or maybe it's the beautiful animals.
Hmmm.... could definitely be the funnel cake.
Maybe it's the actual rodeo? How about the bull riding? You know, take a bull - well, we all know what they do - put a crazy guy on it with a death wish, and let's all watch!
Oh, no. I think it's steer wrestling. Yeah, this one is great - and not the slightest bit inhumane. They take a poor little steer who clearly has know idea what's going on, give him a "head start", then send a cowboy after him whose main objective is to twist the steers neck until he flips over on his back. Now this, my friends, is good Texas fun! (I wanted to rescue a steer and take one home but Joey didn't think it was legal to keep him in the backyard.)
Hold on, peeps, I haven't gotten to the best part! Mutten Bustin'!!
This is a rodeo classic. We fill an arena with 20,000 on-lookers, then find 10 poor little children who are willing to risk their lives for a gold and silver belt buckle. (I would like to take this time to plead with the parents of these children - FORK OUT THE MONEY FOR THE DANG BELT BUCKLE!) The children climb on the back of a sheep (?) which will run like a bat out of hell when that gate opens. The kid who hangs on the longest wins. Good times... Well, I won't lie. Some tears were shed.
When good rodeos go bad...
Actually, I'm pretty sure all of that was just the opening act for this anyway....
