7/24/2003: The running of the ostriches



Hilarity! We're in the town of Irurzun in northern Spain for a very important festival: the running of the ostriches. This is actually a recreation of the running of the bulls, but with a big ol' bird instead. I would never run with the bulls, but I would definitely run with the birds. There needs to be more than one, though.

The expression on the bird doesn't look like he is enjoying being a taxi



Bitman  Thursday Jul 24 12:57 PM

Now all he needs is a big stick.

Ummmm,

I dont think hes riding that ostrich. I think hes, umm, "riding" it. I wonder what the kids will look like.

Great pic UT. If Unknown is right, that explains why the "cardinal" is assisting him.

It looks like there's another bird in the picture, his/her head is sticking up on the top right.

Am I wrong, or is that fella checking the birds cup size? He sure does have a jolly look on his face.



Elspode  Thursday Jul 24 07:30 PM

I don't think I want to run with the ostriches, either. They can kick the shit out of you, man...and they bite.



Leah  Thursday Jul 24 11:58 PM

That ostrich looks mighty pissed off

Maybe a vet?

I wonder why the guy in the red sailor hat has a stethoscope around his neck. ? Odd.

I saw an ostrich race, with jockies riding them and all, at a fair. It was weird. Their legs bend the wrong way - look like something from "The Dark Crystal".

They can knock a grown man on his ass by pecking him once, real hard. Ouch. Anyone see "Dude Where's My Car"?

They're actually more dnagerous than bulls. If a bull is chasing you, there's a good possibility that he may run past you if you lie down. Ostriches and emus have strong enough legs to rip out everything that makes you a special person.
