Be careful what you ask for

Spanish Oysters
An Australian stopped at a restaurant following a day roaming around Madrid.
While sipping his wine, he noticed a sizzling, scrumptious platter served at the next table.
It looked good and smelt wonderful.

He asked the waiter, 'What is that you just served?'

The waiter replied, 'Senor, you have excellent taste! Those are Cojones de Toro, bull's testicles from the bull fight this afternoon. A delicacy!' The Australian said, 'May I have the same please?' The waiter replied, 'I am so sorry senor. There is only one serving per day because there is only one bull fight each afternoon. If you come early and place your order, we will be sure to save this delicacy for you.' The following day he returned, placed his order, and that evening was served the delicacy of the day. After a few bites, inspecting his platter, he called to the waiter and said, 'These are delicious, but they are much, much smaller than you served yesterday.' The waiter shrugged his shoulders and replied,

'Si, Señor; and I am so sorry; but, you know: sometimes the bull wins."

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

A shame the bull doesn't win every day.

I'm daft and proud of it.

Great fecking laugh; of course some people cant see it. Two things here, the joke which is funny and then bullfighting which is not. However, it is a spanish thing so what the feck has it got to do with me? I would rather have a laugh on a dreich Monday morning.

Well, it made me laugh to Dave! I was just responding to tuggers post which I heartily agree with. I see humour in the most inappropriate of places, which gets me into a world of trouble with Mrs. Caulkhead

Dunno if that was a swipe at my comment. If so, please be advised I was the first to 'like' the OP, as I indeed found it humourous.

the joke made me laugh the first time that I heard it (about 10 years ago I think), it still raises a smile and I detest bull fighting in any form.

While I can admire the athleticism of the matador, that is as far as it goes, fortunately it will never be an Olympic sport, but neither can I see it ever stopping completely sadly........ in the same way that dog fighting is not allowed but has simply moved underground and other blood sports.

To bait and then kill a bull is IMO an act of barbarism and can not be justified int he 21st Century, but the thought of the matador ending up on a plate and even better, the thought of the diners face when he realises is still humorous - but then in some ways I may be criticised as having a "black" sense of humour - having worked on emergency ambulances it is a way of coping with the sight of people who have suffered severe trauma.....

and if you want a good example of a complex trauma involving compression, torsion, and all other forms of force "enjoy" this;

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
