Pamplona’s annual Running of the Bulls (or as we like to call it, Darwinism in action) began in Spain this week, and two days into it the human injury count is near 100. For those of us who couldn’t make it, there are plenty of video-bloggers happy to take us along for the crazy ride. YouTube sensation Skyyjohn is one of those vloggers participating in the encierro. He posted a video of himself running on day one of the festival. To quote Skyyjohn, “If you’re an animal-rights activist, you’ll have a lot of beef with this shit right here. But if you’re not, then this shit is the shit.” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves, John. While we don’t advocate the inhumane treatment of animals, we do enjoy large groups of stupid people putting themselves in harm’s way for our entertainment. Watch Skyyjohn’s video below, and skip to the 4:30-mark for the actual running and bulls part.
