Trot a little faster, Dad!
Blog Guy, thanks for continuing to explain the majestic traditions of bullfighting. What’s the last thing that happens before the bullfighter enters the ring?
As you can see, “El Snapadoro” takes an official photo in case there’s a hole the size of a toilet seat going through him after the fight. Smile, Mr. Personality!
I see. And then after the fight, the bullfighters strut triumphantly around the ring, eh?
No. See, if the bull gets back up again, these dudes don’t want him to spot them, so they climb on the shoulders of Los Piggybackadoros Expendables for a ride.
That doesn’t seem too dignified to me.
Hold on. These guys just dressed up in beanbag hats, pink stockings and Lucky Charms suits to torture a poor animal to death, and NOW you’re worried about their dignity?
Well, when you put it that way….
Right: Tomas (R) and Cesar Jimenez celebrate after the bullfight.
