News, but not the serious kind
Look! It is ‘El Tall One’ himself!
Blog Guy, can you please settle a bet with my pedicurist’s pest control guy?
Sure. I’m just here to settle bets. What’s up?
It’s about bullfighting, and I know you wrote the book on that. The cockroach man says bullfighters tend to be short, like jockeys, but I think they’re much taller. Who’s right?
I’m afraid cockroach man is right. I believe the average height of a living matador is only 3’6″, and many of the dead ones are even shorter.
Wow. Guess I owe him $20,000. Are there any exceptions to that?
Only one, who goes by the colorful name of “El Tall One.” As you can see here in these pictures, he’s a towering 5’8″. He has built his whole career around his incredible height.
Hold on. Wait a second, Blog Guy. This is SO bogus. That dimwit is just riding on the shoulders of another dude!
Hey, pal, could you shut up and show a little sensitivity? The folks who go to watch displays of animal cruelty for amusement aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer, so if this fools them, let it go.
But I find this pathetic! How many other matadors are duping their feeble-minded fans with novelty gimmicks?
You mean aside from “El Magical Flying One,” who bounces across the bull ring on a pogo stick?
