The Bashful Bowels of a Baby Buffalo named Betsy

Last weekend I took the kids to a school fundraiser that was all about Buffalo Poop.

I sounds like a Jeff Foxworthy joke but alas it isn't.

About 50 people gathered around a roped off area on the football practice field (I know that made me laugh too) to watch this baby buffalo named Betsy poop on a square.

The grid had already been laid in place and the names of those who participate, included me, had been randomly placed on the big master board.  We had a middle square and to outer edge squares.  I thought we had a good chance!

Betsy, on the other hand, decided that she preferred pooping in her trailer and not in an open field with lots of onlookers. 

Betsy apparently had bashful bowels.

Those of us on this grid, who paid $10 for three squares, were getting restless waiting for IT to happen.  After all, if Betsy picked your square then you won $400!  That's a lot of dough for a little poo.

And after waiting for more than 20 minutes, Betsy finally let lose and managed to land her patty in the center of a square, thereby avoiding any "The shit was on the line" controversy.

Unfortunately, it wasn't even close to my square.

Oh well, there's always next year.

Around here we forgo the bison and use cows and especially ducks.

(It is never a long wait for a duck to (you know what))

The cow version is advertised as cow patty bingo. {*grin*} Most of the sales barns run at least a monthly bingo game and have for at least the last 50 years around here.

Now that is one creative way to raise funds for a school. I don't think our school would have gone for it though, but I would have purchased a few squares myself!
