“So? What do you do for a living?”

July 15, 2006

Who could have guessed that the next big trend would be nun-matador bars? But here they are, wildly successful – at least, you know,  in cities that have both nuns and matadors.  Of course, you may have different ideas about what’s going on in this photo. Try your hand at a clever caption, and send it our way via Post a Comment.nuns300.jpg

Even the nuns of the Convent of our Lady of Eternal Forgiveness must giggle at the red socks worn by the Two Worst Dressed Matadors Ever to Enter the Bullfighting Ring.

Photo shows Banquo (L), the weird sisters and Macbeth (R) in a production of the Scottish Play in Pamplona.

“What are these” . . . queried Banquo . . .
“So wither’d and so wild in their attire,
That look not like the inhabitants o’ the earth,
And yet are on’t? Live you? or are you aught
That man may question? You seem to understand me,
By each at once her chappy finger laying
Upon her skinny lips: you should be women,
And yet your [red hankies] forbid me to interpret
That you are so.”

A Shortage of Bulls means drastic measures. A group of nuns have stepped forward to help out and take the place of the bulls at Pamplonas bullring. The Nuns will don bull costumes at next Sundays bullfight.

What papal bull? The agency asked us only to come round and pick up a regular bull. Those guys never can get anything right…
