News, but not the serious kind
The place to go when you really NEED to pull a head off!
I just don’t get it about Spain. Those people over there only seem to be entertained if they’re doing something twisted to animals, live or dead.
Today we have a variation of the goose one, a festival where folks pull the heads off of roosters.
Do these people have something against just watching TV for entertainment, like the rest of us?
I get the idea that if your village wants to have a festival, the official government form says, “Briefly describe what kind of animals will be abused, and how.”
Hey Blog Guy, it’s me, your editor. Aren’t you forgetting that Spanish festival that doesn’t involve harming animals at all? It’s the one where they dress a guy as the devil and have him jump over a mattress filled with live babies. Just humans, no animals.
Oh that’s right, Boss, thanks for the reminder! I feel so much better about the place now.
