Never been to the state fair but saw a post on the subReddit r/Oklahoma that mentioned this guy and his insults back in the day. Any of y’all remember him and have any stories of the insulting clown?

I heard they had to police escort him to and from the tank.

Some people on r/Oklahoma have some pretty good stories:

I don’t know if it was the same fellow, but the clown in the dunking tank at the Tulsa state fair had some pretty good zingers in stock for passersby and those unfortunate enough to try their luck with less than MLB skills.

I remember him. He kept calling people nerds as they passed by him. This was 25+ years ago.

He's still around OKC, I've met him a few times. He was singing karaoke in a bar one night, and I remembered that voice and I asked him who he was and he said he was BoBo at the fair, he told me some great stories! He did that for a fundraiser every year and donated the money to children's charities around the city. Helluva nice guy.

I had a big time arm back when I was in high school.

I avoided Bobo like the plague, because I was a big tall country looking goober. We were walking by, at what we thought was a safe distance) when he spied us. He started in on us. Unmerciful. My buddies talked me into going over. They paid for I think 9 balls.

First throw got away from me and dang near went over the back net. He unloaded on me some more. I was about to crap myself because everyone there was dying laughing at me.

Next throw got real close. More verbal abuse. Third popped the lever but it didn’t break. Number four sent him dropping as he was still hammering me with zingers. Now I was dialed in and made my buddies investment pay off. He wouldn’t let the carnies sell us anymore balls. Didn’t stop him from cheap shotting me.

Did he say why he stopped doing that? Just decided to retire or what?
