What happens when a cop discovers this Speedo-clad man riding his wooden horse around the Alamo?

Tourists will certainly remember this particular weekend at the Alamo.

That’s because a man caused what experts might call a “ruckus” by prancing around in a Speedo on his wooden stick pony while wielding a rubber chicken.

Matthew Silver reckons himself to be a performer and clown, while authorities reckon him to be a public nuisance.

He was detained shortly after his little performance-art piece began in front of the Texas monument.

There’s no accounting for taste, but we personally prefer the antics of this Speedo-wearing rabble-rouser.

Perhaps hoping to raise his profile and pick up some freelance performer/clown work via word of mouth, Silver posted a video of his frolicsome antics to Facebook.

He claims the act “cost him access to Federal property in Texas,” according to News 4 San Antonio.

We’re left with many questions after watching the video, but primarily: Where can we pick up a pair of the swim trunks?

    I think I saw this guy dancing in his undies in Union Square Park on Sunday.

      @Kieran: Yup, that’s nearly naked Union Square guy. Guess he takes his show on the road.

    Seriously, what was he doing that was illegal and would warrant expulsion from federal lands? I would be suing the pants off the arresting officers, the town, the county and the state for violating my First Amendment Rights.

    This makes me so angry I want to grab my Speedo, rubber chicken, hobby horse and get on the first plane to Texas myself.
