Officials at the Missouri State Fair and are currently dealing with a public relations nightmare after a rodeo clown appeared in an Obama mask to fire-up the crowd at a Saturday night rodeo. Here are some highlights from the report in the Kansas City Star:

Clown’s Obama stunt at Missouri State Fair draws rebuke

Missouri State Fair officials and politicians on Sunday condemned the performance of a rodeo clown who donned a mask resembling President Barack Obama during Saturday’s bull riding competition.

A tempest over the incident erupted after the website Show Me Progress reported a Facebook account of it.

“The announcer wanted to know if anyone would like to see Obama run down by a bull,” the posting said. “The crowd went wild. He asked it again and again, louder each time, whipping the audience into a lather.”

All this hubbub signals it’s time for another world famous Tatler Photo Caption Contest because I am confident all you creative geniuses out there can write a better headline than the Kansas City Star.

Now, we must always have respect for the Office of the President, no matter who is the occupant. However, we all know that not too long ago, if a clown had appeared in a George W. Bush mask and asked the crowd if they would like to see Bush run down by a bull, this would have been a non-story.

But regardless of past political history, please obey our contest rules of “be nice and stay classy because the media watching.”  (I have avoided reeducation camp thus far this summer and do not want to tempt fate.)

Here again are the winners from our last extremely competitive contest who all managed to play by the rules.

Finally, to help get you in the contest groove, here are lyrics from the classic song, Send in the Clowns  written by Stephen Sondheim:

 Isn’t it rich?

Isn’t it queer?

Losing my timing this late
In my career?

And where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns.
Don’t bother – they’re here.

1) Obama has mastered bull so supremely, not a single one would charge him. Professional courtesy.

2) Rodeo clowns need to be expert at dodging, evading, escaping, ...this is where Obama practices his fiscal, security and foreign policy explanations.

3) So, a clown dons an Obama mask? Well, after five years...turnabout is fair play.

4) I don't know about bovine animals...but Obama has been roping and riding his media...we know this because they all have his brand tattooed on their backsides.

5) Harry Truman's home state. The bucking stops here?

6) They originally tried this with Biden, but he kept trying to honk the horns.

7) Obama's advance team warned him about being gored. He thought that meant this was a global warming hoax convention.

8)Obama going straight to the source, he wanted to see where all his BS was made.

9) Obama was told he was going to be hanging out with the bulls and he kept looking for Michael Jordan.

10) This...would be the first bull market Obama has seen since the day he took office....and likely...the last as well.

Correction:

The Bull will be awarded both ears - but the broom always belongs to Hillary.

A) Obama was told he was going to a round up...he thought the IRS had found the usual Tea Party suspects.

B) Barry couldn't find a red cape to wave in front of the bull's face, so he just did what he's been doing all along...waving his red diaper in all our faces.

C) What do the bull and Barry have in common? They spent most of their early lives snorting.
