    What Happened to Bobo at the ISF?

    Anyone else notice the absence of Bobo the clown dunk tank at the state fair this year? Any word on why? That was always a good place to hear some funny stuff!

    I was wondering the same thing. I walked through that disease infested, pedifile playground area known as the Mid-Way to check him out... but his 'normal spot' was vacant.

    Parents said the same thing that he was missing... he was usually on our exit route and good for a last laugh or two before heading home.

    PC police got to another thing. ACLU probably filed a law suit against him for racism

    Re: What Happened to Bobo at the ISF?

    I could understand maybe moving him away from the gate to somewhere where the traffic wasn't flowing through in/out but that's just stupid if the PC police had something to do with this because they were offended. It's all just joking, if you don't like it you don't have to stand there and watch it. Personally I thought it was hilarious sometimes

    I believe that it is a different crew doing the midway than previous years. Do they just not have the clown dunking station?

    i thought it was just as funny watching the people that would actually get ****** off at him and throw their balls at the cage; usually missing, just asking him to make fun of them even more.

    I was only guessing on the PC Police. Don't take that as Gospel.

    I think this is correct. The midway is not BlueGrass this year. It's Belle City Amusements.

    You do realize that the ACLU would be the ones likely defending him after he was sued by someone who had their feelings hurt, don't you?
