9/13/2005: Tomatina 2005



Food fiiight! The annual Tomatina festival in Bunol, Spain took place two weeks ago but I was underwhelmed by the wire service photos of it. Then a nice gallery of photos from this year's event appeared.



They drive into town in trucks loaded with 150,000 tomatoes.



And the fight begins. And pretty soon it turns into a massive free-for-all. The only rule is that you must break the skin of the tomato before throwing it.



And everyone is going at all their might, and pretty soon the streets are red.



It seems to end when there are no pieces large enough to throw.



It looks like the shopowners have figured out that plastic tarps are a good idea.

I bet you'd make a killing being a cleaner over there!

...I wonder what they do with it all?



dar512  Tuesday Sep 13 10:02 AM

I think the last two pictures give a hint. I suspect that they start hosing the streets and walls at the top of the town and the water and tomato paste flow downhilll until eventually it all ends up in the Bunol river.



Trilby  Tuesday Sep 13 10:24 AM

Now, this is what I like! Images of half-naked Spaniards slick with tomato! I think an annual food-fight would be really good for a lot of communities. I wonder how I could start one of my own...



Hobbs  Tuesday Sep 13 10:44 AM

So they throw all those tomatoes, smoosh them up real good, rinse off the people, streets, walls, and squeegy the juice down the drains. Drains leading to where? I suspect that's where all that Barilla pasta sauce comes from.

A few of my mates went to this. Looks wicked fun....

Realizing that the citizenry of Bunol, Spain are nowhere near as fast as those of Pamplona, and that running with the bulls would be a foolhardy thing to do, the Town Council has started the Running with the Tomatoes Festival.

Luckily, this year, only 3 attendees were injured, though one is epected to be in a persistent vegetative state.

ew. yucky.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Sep 13 06:00 PM

Welcome to the Cellar, danja.

At least there won't be any trace of skunk smell when they're done cleaning up.



hot_pastrami  Tuesday Sep 13 06:40 PM

Chunky-style man-salsa, anyone?



Leah  Tuesday Sep 13 06:40 PM

Tomato soup anyone.......
I love tomato soup.



Trilby  Tuesday Sep 13 06:44 PM

i love tomato soup, too. Esp. with a grilled cheese! Mmmmmmmmmmmmm
Yuhmmm-May! grilled



Leah  Tuesday Sep 13 06:47 PM

Do you put grilled cheese on top? I've never done that. I grate cheese in my soup, yummmmm :p



Clodfobble  Tuesday Sep 13 10:05 PM

"Grilled cheese" is a kind of toasted cheese sandwich in the US.



Trilby  Wednesday Sep 14 09:23 AM

Leah--you have grilled cheese in Oz, right? Please say you do! It's white bread, spread with lots of butter, grilled butter-side down with slices of cheese (I like sharp cheddar) on top until cheese melts. Add the other slice of buttered bread, flip sandwich over to grill other side. It is ooey-gooey heaven! You can also dunk your sandwich in your tomato soup! Or, dunk your sandwich in ketchup! Bliss!

Now I'm hungry!!

Check for a Virgin Mary or FSM imprint before you eat it ...



capnhowdy  Wednesday Sep 14 03:58 PM

We NEVER have any fun shit like that where I live. All we have is the stoopid redneck games.
As for sandwiches (or sammiches), I love a cool sliced tomato sammich with lots of mayo , salt & pepper. On toasted bread. Chow time........

you forgot the sliced cucumber, capn'

My dad used to work with a not-so-gentle-man who regularly ate "leggabone sammiches." These consisted of two chicken legs 69ing between two slices of bread, mustard to taste.

My dad had a few good stories from that job. Like the one about the guy who could shoot the eyes out of the pigeons roosting in the rafters, using a BB gun. (Bird shit in your wled bead makes for some nasty slag.) Or, the one about the guy who was fortunate enough to keep his foot even though his boot left an imprint on the sheet of steel that he was trying to roll. But, one of my favorites was always the one about the guy who would flick a paper match into your coffee from accross the room if you didn't keep it covered.

Welders are a strange bunch.

With the bones still in the legs? Inside a sandwich? Sounds pretty hard to eat.


BigV  Friday Sep 16 12:59 PM

Welders are very manly men. They probably even eat like pirates! Yarrrgh! Bones and all! Shiver me goggles!

Apparently, he had it figured out... I haven't tried.


capnhowdy  Friday Sep 16 09:55 PM

It's not uncommon down here for someone to put a fish (bones & all) between 2 pcs. of bread. Chicken too. I ordered a sandwich at a soul food cafe out of Savannah and it was like that. Small bar type cafe... they should have warned me. I didn't realize it until after I had taken my first huge, hungry chomp. i think it was a bream, or some kind of sunfish. Awkward to say the least.......
