As you may know, the Spanish town of Pamplona is in the middle of it’s world famous running of the bulls festival— a nine day celebration that honors the city’s patron saint, San Fermín.

A few days before the annual festival started a semi-naked “running of the nudes” protest took place by PETA, demanding an end to the event. 

And now a group of feminists are demanding, not the end of the bull running events, but a running of the cows to make the festival more gender equal.

The women are demanding that they get thier own version of the festival made world famous by Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises.

A local student web site, www.estudiln.net, is demanding “equality for men and women”, arguing that its only logical that women should have their own bull run, despite the fact that women have been allowed to participate in the death defying race for many years.

 “Cows, as well as bulls, have four legs and a natural instinct to run,” says their manifesto. “An encierro for cows, would put Pamplona at the vanguard of traditional fiestas with equality for men and women.”

Organizers of the festival, which runs from July 7-14, have not responded to the suggestion.

But, do cows have massive horns on their heads which can be used to spear the flesh of an adrenalin pumped human?

Not that I know of.

But perhaps a running of the cows would result in much less death and injury than a running with the bulls, but less fun offcourse.

Bull Running 2007- Yeeha!

Pensioner arrested for not watering lawn & clashing with police.

A case of only in America?…

Sleepy Orem town.

A 70-year-old woman from Utah, USA, was thrown in jail after refusing to co-operate with local police who arrived at her home to caution her for, wait for it…… not watering her lawn.

Betty Perry, a retired US military and government worker, says she was visited by a police officer who hit her with handcuffs and cut her nose, after she initially refused to give her name.

“As far as I’m concerned, he really abused me – he brutally abused me, for what?”

The policeman even called for backup to help deal with Betty, who was taken to the local holding cells, fingerprinted and booked.

Betty was greeted at her door last week by an officer from the local Orem police force asking about her scruffy, brown grass in her front yard.

When she said she couldn’t afford to water her lawn the cop started to write her a ticket for violating the city’s nuisance ordinance, which requires residents to keep a maintained, live yard.

“I couldn’t believe what went on, it was so bizarre,” she said. “I wasn’t even prepared for it. Once you’re in handcuffs, you can’t do anything.”

She was only released when police administrators learned about the situation.

The craziest thing I’ve heard all week.

Man’s foot smell mistaken for dead bodies.

Not so happy feet.

A case of mistaken smells…

This weekend German police broke into a darkened flat fearing they would find a dead body after neighbours complained of a nasty smell seeping out onto the staircase.

The shutters of the apartment had been closed for more than a week and the postbox was filled with uncollected mail.

But instead of a corpse police found a tenant with badly smelling feet asleep in bed next to a pile of foul-smelling laundry, police in the southwestern town of Kaiserslautern said today.

Wow, that guy must be one hell of a dirty human being.
