OUCH



Yeah, so it's Monday again. Maybe you had a great weekend, or maybe your weekend sucked, but one thing's for sure: I'll bet you're pretty darn glad that you aren't Michael Lenahan, pictured in the exciting photo above. Right about the same time this picture was snapped, the bull also gored Michael's brother, Lawrence.

As for me, I figure any weekend that doesn't end in an emergency room visit or a call to my insurance agent is a good one.

I'm always happy when the bull gets someone. I always wish it was more serious. Is that so wrong?

Bubs said...

Not at all. I figure the bull should get at least some satisfaction since he's on the way to the slaughter.

Ouch. Serves those idiots right.

I have just read your comment over at the JewGirl abode.

Jaysus man, do you eat with that same mouth?
The "C" word!
Goodness gracious!

Dino aka Katy said...

yeah man0 bull 2 good job - now why one would want to celebrate overcoming cancer by running with bull is beyond me!!!!

Bubs said...

Katy, i was thinking the same thing. From that picture it looked like he saved his testicles from cancer, only to nearly lose them to a bull.

R.S. not only do I eat with it, I kiss my family too. I'm disgusting, but what can I say. Katie finally wore me down and convinced me it was ok.

Dr MVM, does your campaign have an official position yet on bullfighting? I need to know.

Boys are stupid. Present company excluded of course.

Bubs said...

Oh, I'm plenty stupid. Just not in that way; I've done a pretty good job in my life, so far, of avoiding being gored. Not running with livestock has been a big part of that success.

As I mentioned Saturday, why do they report this? Do they report that someone got a black eye at a boxing match? That a fight broke out in a hockey game?

I guess there's one good point about reporting it year after year: guys like you and I, who have had our share of shenanigans in life, get to congratulate ourselves that whatever other mischief we've gotten into in our lives, we've managed to avoid doing something as obviously idiotic as the running of the bulls.

Bubs said...

Johnny, YES! I may have almost put an eye out on a tree limb running an 8k, I may have almost set my garage on fire, I may have shot my brother in the leg with a rocket and burned a hole in his pants...well, you get the idea. After talking with you Saturday, I Googled some photos from this year and that beaut showed up. So, thanks for the inspiration!

I am against all sports that involve cruelty to animals, including roller derby.

Can we let this bull loose in the White House?

jewgirl said...

as we both know, dearie, insurance paying any bill is quite hit or miss. why? because insurance companies are.... bubbsie... c---t. I leave the honor to you.

Tanya Espanya said...

Thanks for the warning on that photo, holyjebusf&ck!

I have NO sympathy for the dummies that get injured. You have to leave that stuff to the professionals.

My uncle is from Pamplona.

Michael Lenahan wasn't the first one to be penetrated by a bull. In search of some context for this ridiculous behavior, I had to turn to Greek mythology. In one myth, the Cretan queen, Pasiphae, developed a lust for a bull and convinced Daidalos to create a wooden cow to fulfill her sexual bull fantasies. In another, Zeus transforms himself into a white bull and with his sexual prowess seduces Europa onto his back and bears her across the sea to Create... Methinks the bull's lure affects more than fair maidens.

Bubs said...

Sin, thanks for the lesson in mythology! Wow.

Tanya, so you're my connect then when I go over the top and decide to run with the bulls. That is, you're my connect if my wife doesn't brain me first.

Now, now JewGirl. Don't expect me to just start spouting c-word all over the place now. Baby steps, remember?

Coaster, that would be something wouldn't it?

Dr MVM, while I applaud your stand against animal cruelty, your bizarre position on roller derby alarms me. I am concerned.

Splotchy said...

bubs, was I there the time you almost burnt your garage down, or was there another time I'm not aware of?

I remember that night, I think.

splotchy, you were there. December 31 1999.
