A man on a business trip in Mexico decides to take in a bull fight. After the event, he stops in to the little dive next to the venue called "The Matador".
As he checks out the menu trying to decide what he wants he sees a waiter bring a dish to another customer.
The dish is spaghetti with these two huge meat balls. When the waiter comes to his table, he inquires. "That is the
Matador Special" replies the waiter. "Spaghetti and Bull testicles. We get them after the bull fight. It is exquisite!"
"That`s what I`ll have!", says the businessman.
"I`m very sorry senor, but that dish is only available once per day".
Disappointed, the man orders another dish and plans to try again the next day.
So again, the next day he goes to the bull fights, and afterwards stops into the dive. Just as the waiter is coming to his table, he sees another waiter bringing the "Matador Special" to another customer who was there before him.
"Damn!" he says to himself. "And tomorrow`s my last day here."
So the next day, he skips the bull fight, and stands in line at the cafe. He is the first one seated, and proudly
proclaims, "I`ll have the Matador Special!"
"Very well, senor!" responds the waiter. Soon afterwards, the waiter brings out his dish, but the meat balls are disappointingly small. Very small, as a matter of fact.
"What`s with this!" the now angry man shouts.
"I`m very sorry, senor" said the waiter, "but the bull does not always lose!"
I don't think it makes you a bad person at all. Perhaps you could be considered a little insensitive? But then I'd have the same reaction, so.....
I think that the matadors get what they deserve! animal cruelty for entertainment is not cool!!
I had a simular experience with the story of a hunter that was killed by a bull elk during hunting season. I too felt justice has been served in some way. I think that these feeling are just emotions felt by anyone who asks for equality for animals. I would feel completely different if the hunter and the matadore were't out to kill both the elk and the bull. I don't think that makes you a bad person, Just human.
I totally agree with you and I don't feel bad about it either! I live in Spain and I'm always cheering on the bull. From what I understand the bull loses anyway, even if it wins they kill it. It makes me sick thinking that in 2009 this "sport" is still legal in this otherwise lovely country.
