The Last Serious Thing

The Querétaro bullring's rather inexplicable refusal to actually stage bullfights has been a longtime gripe of ours, so we probably shouldn't have been surprised by this:



Yes, that was just a little taste of the Xtreme Moto Fighters! spectacular that classed up the joint a few weeks ago. (The dancing girls you see above start around 3:55 mark. Bimbo's not just a brand of Mexican bread, you know.)

After we picked ourselves up from the fainting couch, we discovered that, as much as we'd like to blame Plaza Santa Maria's hacktackular management for this debacle, Xtreme Moto! events appear to be common fare in bullrings these days. And not just any old bullrings - here's one in Las Ventas in Madrid, and another in Pamplona. If Hemingway were alive, he'd shoot himself in the face all over again.

It reminds us of the time Opie and Anthony broadcast that couple having sex in St Patrick's Cathedral, except that those guys got shitcanned as a result.
