  • First a howling blizzard woke us / Then the rain came down to soak us, / And now before the eye can focus — / Crocus.

    • Lilja Rogers,
    • "Hocus Pocus," in The Saturday Evening Post ()
  • In his rhapsody on the subject of rodeos he [the author] said nothing about the unspeakably cruel bucking-straps often used on rodeo horses. This strap crosses the most sensitive area of the male beast's groin and is then cinched as tightly as possible. The extreme pain which results drives even the most gentle horse to buck, kick, and otherwise perform in a manner satisfying to the onlookers. ... At least the onlookers should know what is giving them such a thrilling afternoon. It would be even more thrilled if the horse's rider were also forced to wear a bucking-strap, just as strategically placed and as tightly cinched. That would make it a more sporting contest, and I doubt that it would be the horse that gave up first.
