Caption contest celebrates Spain, the World Cup, bullfighting, Julio Aparicio and the bull that got the upper hand

To celebrate Spain reaching the Final Four of the World Cup, this week’s caption contest focuses on one of the country’s most popular sports: bullfighting.

I first saw this picture on a recent episode of either George Lopez or Jimmy Kimmel, I don’t remember which.  But I do remember the sick need to post it as a caption contest and see what we could come up with.  Aparicio family, please forgive me.

As we all know, bullfighting is as dangerous a sport as they come.  Sure, most professional football players end their careers with countless concussions and knees they can barely walk on, but rarely are they gored in the mandible by an angry, two-thousand pound animal.

In this week’s caption contest, we find one of Spain’s most famous matadors, Julio Aparacio, sent into early retirement by a bull named Opiparo.  Please do NOT try this at your local country bar.

Aparicio has since been released from the hospital which means it’s now safe to make fun of him for his chosen profession.

Have at it, chumpeteers.  The winner of this week’s caption contest will receive a free can of Red Bull and a hamburger.

  1. “So if you come to Barcelona LeBron I will allow this bull to impale me once a year!”

  2. M…. Sorry. I know you didn’t like this pic but I just had to put it up.

    Is it my imagination or does Aparicio look a little like John C. Reilly?

  3. If It Walks Like A Duck And Quacks Like A Duck Then It Can Only Be A Duck

    Chris Simms gets pulled over under the suspicion of DUI . His bac comes back .000 but he admits to the cop that he’d been smoking weed so the cop cites him for that violation .

    JaMarcus Russell gets busted for having a controlled substance i this case codeine without a prescription as the amount he has in possession apparently violates federal law. Ain’t life grand in the NFL ?

  4. JFell…

    ‘Mess with a bull, get the horns’ is a memo Sr. Aparicio apparently never got.

    Oh what, oh what, has become of the SportsChump hour?

  5. Chris

    Duhon signs with the Magic ….. four yrs $16 million. So where does that now leave Nelson and White Chocolate ?

    Bosh says he doesn’t want to play with LeBron in Cleveland but is willing to play alongside him in either Miami or Chicago.

    Alan …………..

  6. Al…

    My initial thought when I heard that news and that dollar figure was DAMN!!! that’s a lot to pay for a back-up point guard.

    I can only assume that White Chocolate is gone, maybe some of that having to do with his post-season locker room tirade.

    I’m also guessing that the Chris Paul rumors were never founded and that the Magic don’t have any money left for anyone to bolster that PF spot.

    Shame.

  7. And last time I checked, Al, Bosh isn’t calling the shots.

    This is still LeBron’s show. Bosh can ride along if he wants or go to the Clippers.

  8. Al…

    Did you catch that one Tweet about JaMarcus Russell that went “When the cops showed up, JaMarcus Russell tried to throw the cough syrup out the window but he took a 12-yard sack instead.”

  9. I, Julio Aparacio the toughest bullfighter in all of Spain will not only fight this bull, but I will also eat him starting at the horns.

  10. Frank, not bad. That’s not exactly the kind of Red Bull I like my vodka with.

    Liz, also not bad. But it looks like poor Julio got a little bit too much bone with his meat.

  11. The latest Spanish Cuisine – Aparicio Kebab.

    Looks a little like a unicorn in this photo, no?

  12. Very nicely done, Ellen.

    Not sure where you came from or how you found the link but you are more than welcome to come back and participate in future caption contests.

    We’re always looking for sick minds like ourselves.

  13. Stumbled in, and will stay, thank you very much. Yes, very sick sense of humor. And I like hamburgers.

  14. Hahahahaha serves him right. Bullfighting is a cruel and primitive sport that should be outlawed. Animals do not deserve to be killed for sadistic pleasure. I sincerely hope and pray (at the bottom of my heart) that el matador lives a long, painful and agonizing life. May he develop cancer of the throat.

  15. Thank you so much, this was very interesting. I was actually born in Madrid ( not telling when though!) but was moved around europe and lastly settled in England when I was 5. I dont remember much of the few years I was in spain, but the smell of spanish food always seems to get me going or something. Funny, how I dont remember anything except the smells,isn’t it! I actually found a whole internet site dedicated to spanish recipes, which gave me great delight and thought I ought to share. Anyway, thank you again. I’ll get my son to add your website to my rss thing…

  16. I know I’m late to the party, but I couldn’t resist.

    “To spit or swallow? No longer an option for Bullfighter Julio Aparicio”
