You’d think some people would self-edit themselves, but no, not this California rodeo announcer, who thought this joke was too good not to share over the PA system:
According to Wilson, the joke as told by the announcer, went something like this: Playboy is offering Ann Romney $250,000 to pose in the magazine and the White House is upset about it because National Geographic only offered Michelle Obama $50 to pose for them. “I can’t speak for the board, but I myself think that this is unacceptable behavior or conduct by the announcer,” said Mike Barrett, Creston Classic Rodeo board member. “I find it offensive, and I think that it’s conduct unbecoming the rodeo announcer.”
Ha ha so funny I forgot to laugh. /sarcasm
According to the story, audience members were stunned, and rodeo board members are demanding an apology.
Creston, California is in San Luis Obispo County, on the central coast. It’s horse, ranch and wine country — a gorgeous part of the state completely undeserving of such a hateful display.
