No Filter: What’s the deal with the bull, Mayor?

OPINION – “No Filter Show” Co-hosts Paul Ford and Grady Sinclair sat down with Hurricane Mayor John Bramall Thursday to hear his take on the somewhat infamous Barista’s Restaurant owner Stephen Ward and his well-endowed bull sculpture in Hurricane City. They asked:

“What’s the deal with the bull, Mayor?”  Hit  play-arrow  above.

See Ward’s appearance on the “No Filter Show” and his “deal” here: No Filter: What’s the deal with the bull, Ward?

Ed. note:  As this episode is published, the penis element of the bull sculpture at Barista’s has been restored.

    Great ‘pour water on the subject’ segment Paul & Grady.
    As far as the bull goes? Maybe putting a smile on it would calm the critics.
    The Editor’s note at the conclusion of piece states that the restoration of the body parts have been restored,. TRUE? This I got to see. Build it and they will come.
    Maybe with the help of the national news outlets, the restoration might entice national political candidates to stop by for a photo shoot (or) protest march.

    Ya the party hat is back in place! That’s how Mr. Ward rolls! £¢$¥ everyone! Look at my biceps! I’m so Awesome! My biceps look at them…….. Look at them! Apples Apples Apples!…… Apples = Biceps

    OMG! Are you serious? So, the penis is back??!! I guess Ward didn’t want to wear it on his head again. This guy is a certified nut-case (ok, pun intended). If he insists on having all parts intact, why then, doesn’t he at least make it anatomically correct? He could take the existing “party hat” and put it on the bull’s head – it might lend a more festive appearance.

    It’s amazing how much attention a penis can get in a state known for large families… LOL

  • Free Parking April 18, 2015 at 8:25 pm

    I’m surprised the editor hasn’t deleted the word penis… considering we can’t say LMAO…. talk about stupid

    If St. George News and the No Filter show were in existence a few years back, the Mt. St. Helens restaurant sign would have been an issue too. If you think a malformed penis could cause issue, imagine a (nude) well endowed woman laying on her back … talk about making the good people of Washington, Utah blush.

      If she was sporting a penis then it “would” be news !

      • Looneybugavenger April 20, 2015 at 7:14 pm

        LOL.! That’s funny they would of burned down the sign and burned down the restaurant and tied the owner to a stake and had a witch burning. LOL.!

  • Free Parking April 19, 2015 at 9:32 pm

    Oh yeah a woman with really big breasts would of had all the men in Hurrykun upset.. Just don’t say the word Hooters because that would be subject to being deleted even though it’s a name of a restaurant chain..

  • Looneybugavenger April 20, 2015 at 6:23 pm

    Uh yup yup yup uh good article uh yup yup yup uh it sure is uh yup yup

    If there was a tour bus that rolled through Hurricane on their way to Zion National Park, what would one hear over the intercom? “Ladies and gentlemen, on the left we have a bull penis and on the right we have Molly’s nipple! Somethings amiss in a town where an animal body part is offensive but not a woman’s. Maybe there should be less Sunday preaching and stone throwing and more Monday through Saturday righteous living.

  • Hugh Jass April 22, 2015 at 9:20 am

    So wait a minute – didn’t that Ward character say that he removed the penis because it was covering up the beautiful craftsmanship and artistry of the underbelly of the bull? And now, he’s put it back?!!???!
    Someone should climb up on that sign and place a steaming pile behind that piece of sculpture. Maybe the burrito joint next door could supply a continuous flow of steam (since they are busier than Baristas) to keep the pile steaming. That would be a more fitting representation of the restaurant and it’s management!

    • Tm2282 April 22, 2015 at 4:34 pm

      Couldn’t have said it better myself!

  • NotSoFast April 24, 2015 at 11:34 am

    It amuses me that the City of Hurricane can’t take advantage of a ‘Bull on a rooftop’ advertisement as well as other catchy signs on the highway to promote tourism and entice travelers to stop, relax. look around, laugh a little and spend your money.
    I think Mr. Ward should run for mayor or be hired for the planning commissioner.
