What a lot of bull — 24 Comments

  1. Isn't writing a blog a sort of 'literary selfie' – he asks provocatively 🙂

    • Of course it is.  If you compare "War and Peace" with a daub of graffiti on a wall, that is.  😀

  2. In my day a selfie was when you took a girlie mag to the loo and locked the door ????

  3. You have nailed the inconsistencies at play in the Pamplona selfie bull case, Grandad. You have deftly compared it to the prohibition of smoking in public buildings in cities across the world where atmospheric pollution caused by vehicle emissions has reached deadly proportions.

    If the Pamplona corpo want to eliminate the possibility of young foolhardy people being gored in the annual bull run they logically need to end the bull run festival, not tell a cock-and-bull story about street selfies. But they won't do that because the local Bord Failte has entrenched tourism interests.

    • The inconsistencies are so enormous that frankly I was gobsmacked.  Fining a runner in the bull-run is like fining a Formula One racing driver for picking his nose at 200 mph.  The dangers they are worried about pale into complete insignificance compared to the actual dangers.  Crazy crazy world. 

  4. Quite frankly I think the human gene pool would be grateful if Pablo was scraped off the footpath with a shovel. Not grateful for the death of a complete fucktard; but for the entertainment value, by which some other fucktard will post it on Youtube.

    Life has taught me that for every knuckle dragger that clocks it, there'll be twenty more waiting to take their place.

    • I'd watch it on YouTube if only to see what a knuckledragger looks like when turned inside out?

  5. I watched the running of the bulls day three and I came up with another sport that can be held at the same time.  There should be a shooting match held at the same time.  Shooters will line up on the roofs of the bulls path.  They are not there to shoot and kill but instead they get points for shooting the runners in the knee just as they run in front of the bull.  If they are not trampled then no points are awarded.  The runner would not be told of the shooting match but even if they were there would still be people running in front of the bulls.

    • That's not a bad idea.

      10 points for winging a runner.

      20 points for causing him to be trampled.

      -50 points for killing a bull.

      0 points for killing a runner.

      That's a sport that could catch on?

  6. “There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games.”
    ― Ernest Hemingway

  7. Pamplona is a very fine place where one can enjoy an excellent, and inexpensive, lunch in the square.

    I don't understand the bullfighting stuff, but it is surrounded by etiquette and traditions -I suspect Narcissus contravened such codes and is probably luck not to be full of bandilleras.

    • I have my reservations about the Spanish treatment of bulls.  However it is their business and it's not up to me to tell 'em what they can or can't do.  I doubt though that ancient traditions mention mobile phones?

  8. "….he is a brain dead narcissistic twat…"  You nailed it, Grandad!  I have to wonder if he even put some thought into the red shirt he wore…."oh, I bet this shirt will give me an advantage over the rest of the fools.  The bulls will pay special attention to me in this!"
