That arena looked like it was held together with prayers.

How often is it that a country's internal festivals and chief exports involve snorting?

Now is not the time to talk about bull control.

For there is surely nothing more beautiful in this world than the sight of a lone man facing single-handedly a half a ton of angry pot roast.   - Tom Lehrer

Mess wit the bull get the stands?

The bull, señor. He does not always lose.

Bravo subby.

Somehow I can't get myself to feel bad about the victims.  They went intending to watch an animal be tortured to death.  Karma sucks sometimes.

Oh no. Anyway....

Good. Too bad the bull didnt get to rampage amongst the debris.

Jenga!

Municipal authorities did not immediately say what caused the collapse, the Colombian newspaper El Tiempo reported.

Seeing as the arena looked like some dystopian slum I'm guessing shiatty construction and like no building codes being followed at all. That's just a wild guess but probably pretty accurate.

Looks like it wasn't held together with prayers.

Looks like prayers were precisely as effective at holding it together as they are for any other purpose.

I went to a bull fight once and never again. I did get a kick out of the event when the sound system started playing "We Will Rock You".

CHARGE!

I am not a structural engineer, but it appears that even when that structure was brand new, it was on the verge of collapse.  I looks like it was held up by hopes and prayers that finally gave way.

Is this where I point out that bullfighting is stupid anachronistic bullshiat?

"Death in the Afternoon."  This whole stupid tradition needs to die.

Is the bull OK?

The bull was standing there looking confused.

You should ask Madison Cawthorn about that.
