I guess it's a cultural thing, Flo. I'm with you. And, I've never understood the whole "running of the bulls" thing either. Usually one or more of the spectators ends up getting gored in that thing. I've been to the rodeo where they stick money on the horns and people from the audience sign releases to get in the ring to try to get the bill off his horns. I think that's crazy! That bull better have a gold bullion on his horn before I get in there.

One time, at a rodeo, they were doing this and of course people were getting run over by the bull, and all of a sudden, this young guy in front of my sister and I stands up and shouts, "This is crazy!" He was quite distressed by the whole thing. My sister and I looked at him then looked at each other and burst out laughing. It was just so unusual to see such a reaction from such a young person (especially a guy ) when normally you see guys egg'n their friends on to actually do stupid stuff like that. There were women out there too. Sometimes, stupid goes both ways!

Good one, JB, I loved the breakfast club. IIRC, then he walks away with toilet paper hanging out of his pants.

The running of the bulls bothers me too, Bonnie. Those people need to get a life.

The article says they killed the bull immediately. That's the messed up part. They shouldn't put any arrows, spears, etc. into the bull. The bull and the matador should do their little dance. If the matador succesfully taunts and avoids the bull for the expected duration, then the bull goes to the slaughter house and becomes a meal. However, if the bull is able get a horn into the matador, the bull goes out to pasture and the matador is sent to the slaughter house instead.

Sounds fair to me.

See how many people sign up to be matadors with those rules.

Yeah well Spain is practically a Third World country, I wouldn't expect anything less from those ignorant peasants. It's a pity the bull didn't kill that greasy haired fop and all those in attendance.

cuss of the bullfighting?.... anyone can take one horrible aspect of a country and call it third world... like the united states with its third world homicide rates.... Does that make it a third world country? absolutely not! Spain is a beautiful country with good people. Whats your bias against it????
