Rodeo Clown Makes Racist Joke And Proves That Rodeo Clowns Aren’t Funny

On Saturday, Rodeo Clown Mike Hayhurst of Barstow CA made an offensive joke over the PA system at the Creston Classic Rodeo. Most people in America were already very aware that rodeo clowns simply aren’t funny unless they are getting a bull horn in the seat of their Wrangler jeans. We really didn’t need another reason not to laugh at them but here comes yet another.

During some ad-lib with the rodeo announcer, Hayhurst told a joke that goes 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 their magazine.

Later that day, Hayhurst apparently suffered a head injury that landed him in the hospital. On Sunday, the press called him at the hospital to ask him if he wanted to apologize for making the sexist and overtly racist joke. Hayhurst only responded by saying “I cannot believe how insensitive you are. I am in the hospital.” He then uttered a vulgarity and hung up. Now THAT is funny.

Hayhurst is a self-professed Republican (as if the joke itself wasn’t evidence enough) and, as one of my readers pointed out, is a Superintendent for Excelsior Charter Schools in California. According to his rodeo clown website, Hayhurst offers “good clean family comedy always!” Before you book him for your next rodeo, however, make sure that the families that are attending are white… And racist.

  2. hesperia reporter says:

    What is REALLY funny is that this clown is a highly paid executive director of a California public charter school in Victorville, CA.

    • Betty Quiroz says:

      So what? He is an outstanding Director of a charter school. I am thankful for this man every day as my child graduated high school because of his dedication. He cares about his students. He has a right to free speech and he is not a racist! You hear worse than the joke he made every day on TV.
