Our yearly rodeo is cause for celebration where I live. Kids get days off from school to attend. Newscasters gush about it. People dress up like cowboys. It's incredibly disturbing. The sad irony is that animal abuse is something that many people here find appalling.

These acts are so cruel and inhumane.

You see, this is wrong. Don't ban calf-roping at the Calgary Stampede, calf roping should remain all over Canada and the Calgary Stampede, and I want to keep forever and ever just on roping calves at the Calgary Stampede and I would like to let you know that when I'm at 99 years of age and after 99 years of age, I'm still going to rope more calves at the Calgary Stampede forever and ever, and calf roping will never be banned at the Calgary Stampede, never, calf roping is never cruel to me, never.

But I imagine that my wisdom for 99 years of age and after 99 years of age will still just help me beat em forever at the Calgary Stampede just to show the crowd how tough I am at it and Ill still be pretty athletic and I still think I can compete with them forever and ever, and that's true as if I do think that I can beat somebody, I can. I still feel in my mind I can win the world again as much as I want to forever and ever and I also said that I'm committed to at least forever and ever more years to keep going so I can stay and be alive forever and ever on the trail, forever and ever as long as I really live, because after 99 years of age, I still want to keep going on the rodeo trail, forever, because roping calves is just something I really love, like to do and just enjoy forever and ever as I feel I can still be tough to keep on winning and say "I'm glad I'll never retire from calf roping, never, as I really just like calf roping for real scientific precision and action, as that's why I need to keep calf roping forever and ever as long as I live, and I'll never retired from calf roping, never, keep calf roping at the Calgary Stampede forever and ever as long as I really live, and I hope calf roping will keep on going forever and ever, YAHOO!"
