I’d like to apologize for having weak content for most of the week. I’ve been fighting a horrible sinus infection. What little time I’ve had awake has been spent lying down wishing I wasn’t awake anymore. To ask for forgiveness for a week of mostly mediocre content, here’s a bunch of footage of rodeo monkeys riding dogs. Sure, it’s a break from TV and movies and weird photoshop projects. But who doesn’t love a rodeo monkey riding a dog?
The first clip is from some between-innings entertainment at a Wilmington Blue Rocks game. I assure you, had rodeo monkeys riding dogs been a Minor League Baseball entertainment option when I was a Media Relations Director in professional baseball, I would’ve spent a lot less time trying to book people like Krazy George (who, by the way, was an incredibly nice guy… but a monkey riding a dog, he was not).
This was where I first saw it, and my comment at the time was “If a monkey dressed like a spaghetti western character ever rode up on a dog and gave me a burrito, I could die right then and there as a very happy man”.
Here’s Whiplash the Taco John’s monkey corralling sheep at a rodeo:
If you’re really curious about this and want to book a monkey-riding dog, here’s a service you can use. No, I’m not kidding, why would you ask me if I’m kidding?
