Mess With The Bull, You Get The Horns (And Killed)

Everyone was having a great time at the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain until one of the bulls (“a brown beast named Cappucino”) had to go and gore one of the runners to death. First time this has happened in 14 years:

The man, whose nationality and age have not yet been released, was gored in the neck and lung as he ran the half mile course through the cobbled streets of the northern Spanish town.

“He is dead. He had been hit by a horn that punctured a lung,” a spokesman for organisers of the annual San Fermin festival confirmed.

    I kinda love the fact that such a big news story about someone dying can come out of an event where grown men actively unleash a hoard of hairy arsed, angry bulls on themselves with no apparent means of protection. I mean, is it really that unexpected?

    I went to the bull run one year. I stood on a balcony drinking a diet coke and thankful for the fact I don’t suffer from the ‘idiotic bravery’ gene…
