Wis. man arrested for playing too much cowbell

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) - Demonstrators calling for the recall of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker learned there really is such a thing as too much cowbell.

Oshkosh police arrested a 26-year-old Appleton man on Thursday after he kept playing a cowbell and shaking it in an officer’s face when he and other protesters were told to be quiet.

The Oshkosh Northwestern reports that when the officer tried to take the cowbell, the man pushed the officer. A 25-year-old Appleton woman then hit the officer in the back with her picket sign while the man was being handcuffed.

Both were taken to the Winnebago County Jail. Police will recommend that the man be charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest and the woman be charged with disorderly conduct and battery to an officer.

Wis. man arrested for playing too much cowbell

Many years ago, when I lived in El Paso, I had a friend that played in a pretty good rock and roll band, he was their percussionist.

That’s right, he played THE COWBELL!

This was always one of favorite SNL skits, every time I saw it I thought of my friend and neighbor, so, Art Quezada, where ever you may be, I thought of you man! Be well!

    Since he was playing a cow bell, I would have loved it if Daisy the Cow had dumped a load on his head.

    First problem: The officer asked to stop. Second problem: You didn’t stop. Third problem: Your occupy-Union sow hit the officer with a sign… Three problems one solution. Occupy jail cell….
