Herb! Watch out for his… Oh, never mind!
Quick quiz: Looking through the Weekend Entertainment section of your local newspaper, which of these festivals could be fun?
a) The Apple Picking Festival
b) The Cherry Blossom Festival
c) The Cute Puppy and Kitten Adoption Festival
d) The Fire-Snorting Wild Bull-Taming Festival
Yeah, I’d have to say all of them could be neat except for that last one.
Just for starters, it doesn’t look like the bulls fully understand that their purpose here is to be tamed.
In fact, it looks to me like they chose the Send Humans to the Hospital Festival, from their Weekend Entertainment section. Which, if you’re a bull, could probably be lots of fun!
