Let’s be honest...you and I both know there are certain aspects of Wild West culture that should be celebrated in perpitude. Afterall, would you want to live in a world that was completely devoid of cowboys, wild women, and whisky? A part of me would certainly die if we ever got to the point of losing touch with what it meant to have a good ol’ time at the rodeo - which is an incomplete affair without a round of Mutton Bustin’. For those of you unfamiliar with this little known feat of animal showmanship, I’m very proud to share with you this video from last year’s National Western Stock show in Denver.
Yes, it’s exactly what you think it is and YES, IT IS HILARIOUS. So, be grateful in this moment that you live in a country where convincing your 7 year-old progeny to get a death grip on a spazmatic wool bag is still a celebrated and legal form of entertainment.
God bless America indeed!
