News, but not the serious kind

Welcome to the Scarf ‘n’ Barf

July 8, 2009

Blog Guy, you do a wonderful job of keeping us up on what the elite are doing. Where is the Smart Set this week, so we can once again envy the lush life?

There’s only one place to find the Beautiful People this week, awash in a sea of red scarves at the San Fermin festival in Spain!

It’s time to run with the bulls, but it’s also a time for chic parties. As you can see here, the Beautiful People are out in force, enjoying fine local food and wine.

You know, I notice that the Beautiful People seem to be doing a lot of retching and puking.

What did you expect? You asked about the lush life, and I gave you lushes.

All of your captions always refer to these people as “revelers.” What does that mean?

I believe the definition of reveler is “somebody you’d never give your real phone number to.”

Is it just me, or does anyone else remember that the bescarfed dudes are the ones that actually do the running of the bulls?

If there is a pool, I pick the guy that is bravely trying to walk, but failing, in the pictures, for the first one to be trampled with love, by the running and trampling and goring bulls this year!

Yup! That’s my pick of the pool of human sacrifices at the 2009 Love In and Stompatorium! Of the bulls, even!
