Flint’s Last Ride for the PBR..The Next Merman at the Sip N Dip?
"If retirement doesn't work out for you after next week, we're looking for a merman on the weekends!" - Sip 'n Dip Lounge, Great Falls, Montana.
That's what the Sip 'n Dip had to say as they offered up their congrats to PBR funnyman Flint Rasmussen.
For those who aren't tracking...Flint Rasmussen's "last ride" at the PBR in Billings, Montana is this weekend. So, if you want to see the legendary funnyman from Choteau- the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) event this weekend is it.
Last Friday, I was talking with our friend George Blackard about how the new version of "The Little Mermaid" has gone "woke." Apparently Disney is re-writing some of the lyrics so that it is more politically correct for today's "woke" Hollywood culture.
That topic reminded me of the hilarious post shared by the famous Sip 'n Dip Lounge where they basically told Flint- hey, if retirement doesn't work out for ya...we could use a "merman on the weekends."
Then we got to joking...wait a minute- with this insane "woke" culture and all the pronoun nonsense...can we even call him a "merman?" Is the woke term supposed to be "merson" instead of "merman?"
Either way, Flint says he is in. And- "I will go with MERMAN!"
Background for those who are new to Montana: The Sip 'n Dip Lounge is a famous tiki bar in Great Falls. For years, "Piano Pat" would serenade guests. The hotel swimming pool can be spotted through the glass behind the bar, so women (and sometimes men) will dress as mermaids and swim behind the bar. It's been featured in GQ magazine, CBS Sunday Morning, and practically everywhere else.
