Ma, Dwayne’s dressin’ like a sissy again!
Blog Guy, you write a lot about bullfighting. What’s the stupidest thing about that so-called tradition?
It’s a close call, but one thing that comes to mind is the montera.
The Mitsubishi? Really? Bullfighters drive mid-size SUVs?
No, that would be a Montero. The montera is the beanbag hat they wear.
The idea is to make the most obnoxious face humanly possible as they adjust the beanbag just before the bullfight. Here, look at these guys above. Who would you root for?
The bull, of course. I see what you mean. So does this give you any ideas?
Indeed it does. Instead of being angered by red capes, I think we need to train a whole new generation of bulls that get annoyed by those goofy hats and pompous faces.
Think about it. Both hands are busy and the matadors are concentrating on their obnoxious looks. It’s the perfect time for a sudden charge.
Good idea, Blog Guy! Then again, I’d still like to see a bullfighter wear one of those hats while driving his Montero through my neighborhood….
