PAMPLONA BULL RUN…SORRY, NOT FOR ME!

Every year men and women from all over the world descend on Pamplona in July in order to dare bulls in Hermes bandanas to chase them. I understand tradition, but not the motivation behind risking one’s life over a dare! Caught, at the very least one might be disfigured for life. Now there seems to be another tradition…’gender’ violence! Women are having their clothes torn off and are being groped in public. Those Spanish bulls are really anti-social!

I wouldn’t dream of running ahead of the bulls. WADDLING down the road with a latte in one hand and a croissant in the other, even a one-eyed, three legged bull wouldn’t have much difficulty HORNING its way into my affections! The thought of having one or more testicles ‘ripped’ off before I’ve had the opportunity to extend my family tree fills me with utter terror! On a serious note, since 2000, 74 people have died in bull runs across Spain. This year 12 perished. You can’t protect people from their own foolishness!
