I believe it was Charlie Chaplin who once said, “Man as an individual is a genius. But men in the mass form the Headless Monster, a great, brutish idiot that goes where prodded.”
But something tells me that even as individuals, every single one of these guys and girls would still be a shitdick.
According to the NY Post at least 12 people were injured during a traditional running of the bulls festival on Sunday in Peru. The majority of injuries happened in the Yananuco neighborhood during the “Jala Toro” act in which “horsemen parade outside the bullring, pulling a group of bulls by ropes attached to their horns, whilst onlookers taunt the animals.”
Members of the local media reported that some of those injured were hammered, and despite the latest round of injuries that definitely could have been prevented in regards to both the bulls and humans, the “popular bullfights and running of the bulls will continue throughout the weeklong Fiesta de las Cruces (Feast of the Crosses) festival.”
Look, we’ve said it before, and we’re going to say it again. Taunting bulls, whether you’re a drunk turd in the streets of Peru or twirling a red cloth while wearing a silly hat in front of thousands of other morons looking on, is nothing short of disgusting, and in either case, if you get your balloon knot ripped to shreds by the enraged bull, you’re going to get zero in the sympathy department from us.
