“It’s a cultural thing (Bullfighting) though, so it will remain what it will remain.”

It has been a continuous though changing tradition, from the time of the Roman Coliseum. It is declining in Spain, especially in Catalonia (Barcelona), where they closed down their bull ring. They still do it in Mexico.

While there, I attended a bull fight, and ate at the restaurant afterwards. Not knowing much Spanish, I had the special of the day, which was good. Afterwards, I was surprised to learn that it was made from the testicles of one of the bulls killed.

The next day, I took my friend to have him try it, but when it came, the portion size was only a tiny fraction of the day before - no way was it a meal.

When I complained, they apologized, but said that the bull doesn’t always lose.

Ta - dum - ching!
