Video: Rodeo clown gets tossed by bull at Stock Show. Hooray!

Is there a more selfless profession in America than that of the rodeo clown?

Seriously. First, they get tagged with a title that invites mockery. Then they run around for hours, placing themselves in between cowboys and the horns of a pissed-off bull, only to risk head injury by being throw fifteen feet in the air like a colorful flapjack, all for our twisted entertainment. That's what being a true American hero is all about, as you'll see in this video taken yesterday at the National Western Stock Show's Professional Bull Riders Denver Chute Out.

Rodeo clowns, I salute you.
