Running with the BS

Ok, so like there’s this thing called The Running of the Bulls in Spain. It involves running (on purpose) in FRONT of a bunch of bulls that are exceedingly pissed off. This bizarre ritual was recently depicted in the excellent Indian movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. This is one of those things that I can’t get my head around. If you want to commit suicide, there are less painful and exotic ways to do it. If you want a thrill, there are better thrills, each with a lower propensity to get gored in the ass while thousands of ecstatic Spaniards look on and cheer gleefully. If you doubt the gruesomeness of said slaying, check out this infamous videoof Julio Aparicio getting gored under the chin with the bull’s horn coming up through his mouth. If you cannot satisfy yourself with other thrills or suicide attempts, you can certainly consider inventing other absurd past times such as ‘Bitch-slapping the Lions,’ ‘Stealing the Bear Cubs,” or “Smearing Blood on Yourself and Wrestling the Sharks.” I mean why not at least be original? If you are lucky, you might even be immortalized by winning a Darwin Award through a unique but grisly death. I guess what I’m saying is if you are want to go, go big. Don’t end up a footnote in history by ending up as a stain on the streets of Pamplona.
