A rodeo in the small town of San Louis Obispo, California has attracted some unwanted attention after the announcer somehow felt the need to compare the first lady to something that might be seen in National Geographic.
“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,” announcer Ed Kutz said, according to Dona Wilson, a woman who was in the audience.
The joke was not taken well by most who’ve heard about it around the nation and to their credit, even members of the rodeo are saying that the host needs to apologize.
“I can’t speak for the board, but I myself think that this is unacceptable behavior or conduct by the announcer,” said Mike Barrett in The San Louis Obispo Tribune. “I find it offensive, and I think that it’s conduct unbecoming the rodeo announcer.”
There is no word on whether an apology is forthcoming or not. Also, the White House hasn’t had much to say about the matter.
