Leg Up!!!

The Running of the Morons. And some bulls.

Serves ya right, dipshit.

That is Christopher Neiff of Norway, who received a 5-inch wound when the bull’s horn tore “into his shin and slide under the skin right up to his knee.” Because he is evidently the luckiest bastard on the planet, Neiff’s bone was unaffected.

But because the USA is #1, brothers Michael Lenahan and Lawrence Lenahan of Philadelphia decided to get gored at the same time! Aw3s0m3!!!1!!

Who’s your daddy?

The bull who injured the Lenahan brothers injured 11 other people as well, making last Thursday “the worst day for injuries in the nine-day festival.” That is not the behavior of a happy animal. Just saying.

  1. Brings a whole new meaning to the question, “Hey, are you horny?”

  2. The capturing of the dude’s facial expression at the exact moment of horn-in-leg is amazing.

    Yikes, but ya gotta root for them bulls every time!

  4. what exactly is the point of this whole event?

  5. Is he an angry gay bull? Double your pleasure!

    Will there be a doubled-horned dildo for sale at next year’s running?

  6. what exactly is the point of this whole event?

    I don’t know. I guess when you’re a straight white dude, sometimes you just want to know what it feels like to not be one. Or something.

    That horn in leg image will haunt me for quite sometime.

    Having been on the wrong end of a bull’s horns when I was much younger, I can, with all seriousness: these people are insane.

    (Then again, after going ten rounds with that bull, he was rather tasty when flame-broiled.)

  9. This is one of those times where despite something being a traditional cultural practice, it really needs to have the fuck banned out of it.

    Trditional Cultural Idiocy

    Think: Natural Selection …….two inches to the right, problem solved …!!

    Those photos are fucking unreal. Eeew. Any word on the condition of the brothers?

  12. amish451

    Traditional ….!

    Screw that – I say stick cobra venom on the bulls’ horns, and encourage evolution.

    My legs hurt. Ow ow ow ow. You can fucking see the fucking tip of the horn under his fucking knee! Ow ow ow ow.

    What does the Mormon bit refer to?

  16. Betsy

    OOPS! I cannot read. Morons, not Mormons. Who’s the moron now?

    My mom talks about going to run with the bulls for her sixtieth birthday. I respond that I would love to accompany her to Spain, but would much rather participate in the PETA (also known as People for Getting Naked to Protest the Cruel Treatment of Animals, but PGNPCTA isn’t a particularly winsome acronym) protest of the event. I’m no great lover of PETA, but, as Sarah in Chicago put it, that shit really needs to have the fuck banned out of it.

    Also, what Jaclyn said. It took me a second to figure out what was going on in the first picture because I was looking at the bull instead of at the man. Once I got it, my legs curled up in protest. Yeouch!

  18. What makes this even more interesting from the spectators point of view is that there are always some foriegners, usually Aussies but not only them, that think staying up all night getting pissed out of your brain and then trying to run down a crowded street with about 1000 pounds of pissed off bull with very sharp horns right on your ass is the thing to do. The ride in the ambulance usually does a lot towards sobering them up.

    And for those who do not know these are not domestic animals but indeed wild animals whose instinct is to try and gore anything that gets in front of them. In fact, one of the most famous and most experienced bullfighters in Spain got very badly gored just this afternoon. Not only did the bull gore him three times but it also stepped on his chest which did his breathing no good at all.

  19. Screw that – I say stick cobra venom on the bulls’ horns, and encourage evolution.

    Oh, I’m not concerned about the morons doing the running in front of bulls, Phoenician, they would hopefully be recipients of a Darwin Award … my objection is based on the horrible treatment of the bulls …

  20. Would something like that be covered by a Band-Aid or were stitches required?

    What a disturbing photo. Yeeecchhh.

    what exactly is the point of this whole event?

    Damn if I know. I’ve read everything that Hemingway ever wrote on the subject and I still have no idea.

    I’m guessing that this event is like many other tourist-overrun European festivals: Mostly Americans, Brits and Aussies stumbling drunkenly through the streets, while the natives watch from a safe distance, drinking sangria and laughing. Like the Oktoberfest, only bloodier and without beer.

    Figures it’d be a couple of Philly boys getting a new bunghole from a bull. *eyeroll*

    Personally I would rather see these testosterone overdosed idiots getting trampled by cattle than out on the highway in their SUV’s.

  24. Arkades

    Wow. It’s the twenty-first century and there are still stupid dipshits out there whose idea of a good time is provoking a wild animal until it lashes out violently?

    *blows whistle* You, over there!! Yeah, you! Out the gene pool!

    Goddamn, the cult of masculinity can be just as bad as the cult of femininity. (The difference is that these straight white guys are in charge of both and could just cut it out if they wanted.)
