Caption contest celebrates Spain, the World Cup, bullfighting, Julio Aparicio and the bull that got the upper hand
July 6th, 2010 by Chris Humpherys
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.
