Here’s one of the few positive mentions of someone using a bullwhip in the news:
Indiana Ben cracks whip at state fairgrounds
Jugheads Youth Juggling Co.’s Paul Arneberg gives his students plenty of freedom to succeed on their own terms.Ben Moore — a Woodbury resident, Arneberg’s nephew and “just one of the Jugheads,” his mother said — combined his study of the sport of juggling with a little inspiration a la Harrison Ford.
Indiana Ben is a new act featuring juggling balls, rings and clubs, plus the cracking of two whips, and the wearing of a trenchcoat and a fedora.
And 12-year-old Moore’s favorite part of the show?
“Scaring people with the bullwhip,” he said.
A performer must play to the audience, Moore added.
“He likes the reaction,” said Tammi, his mother
It’s always great when there’s a story that promotes sport whip cracking!
