Run Idiot Run

Every year, the human race engages in self-cleansing rituals that are as admirable as they are ingenious!

Example 1: Under the guise of the San Fermin festival, the stupidest subjects among them are enticed with claims of bravery and bravado to gather into a narrow winding course of cobbled streets before they let loose 6 wild powerful bulls. The idiots then begin to run... DOWN the street instead of out of the way!

It's a scandal that these benevolent animals who do us such a great service are later on slaughtered by other spear-wielding idiots dressed like pixies.

While this may not be the most effective means of sanitizing our gene-pool, it is at least fun to watch and it isn't a crime since all participants are self-willed. Thank Ernest Hemingway for making this all so popular, we couldn't have done it without him!

*15 people have been gored to death and over 200 injured since 1910, 4 added this morning. The innocent bull victims are much more of course, but nobody bothers to count them.

More info from Wikipedia.

Example 2: In May, a roll of cheese is thrown down a grassy hill in Gloucestershire, Scotland. Idiots run after it. This is even more pathetic than the recent story of goats running off a hill in Turkey, as relayed by American in Lebanon. What do the participants have to say for themselves? Try this:

"The pain was worth it. I went over on my ankle right at the top of the hill."

"This cheese is going straight in a cupboard when I get home. It's definitely not for eating."

Run Idiot, Run!

I wonder why that "anonymous chicken" was insulted...

Anyway, the title reminds me of the movie "Run Lola Run". It is a nice movie to watch if you haven't already done so.

...still wondering if this "anonymous chicken" runs after cheese balls or he prefers to be run after by bulls!

I was referring to the movie Forrest Gump actually, where the girl (forgot her name) cries out: "Run Forrest, Run!"

Run Lola Run (which I think got the idea from Forrest) is a great movie I agree. I talked about it here:

Yeah, it is curious that mostly men do these things. Are you trying to imply that we are a disadvantaged sex when it comes to good sense? :P
