My money was on the camel

I once went to a midget bullfight in Tijuana. I'll never forget it.

Was that midgets fighting a bull, or a regular guy fighting a miniature bull?

I'm not sure which would be better.

It was midgets fighting young bulls.
We had gone down for a regular bullfight, but they were canceled because no alcohol is served 24 hours before Mexican elections. Our cab driver told us there was a bullfight for the little people and we thought he meant kids. Well, yeah, there were a lot of kids in the audience, but when the torreros came out, they were all midgets.

Other entertainment that day included midgets dancing in Power Ranger halloween costumes (made by the company I was working for at the time), and midgets racing three-wheeled ATCs and jumping them over a ramp made out of an old, flimsy, Coca-Cola sign. On the last pass, the ATC didn't quite clear the audience members who volunteered to be jumped over.

I like how alcohol is apparently a necessary enough component in bullfights that a government mandated sobering means cancelled shows. I guess you do have to have drunk a bit to find it a good idea to piss off large horned behemoths though.

I think one would have to be drunk to volunteer to be jumped over by a midget on an ATC as well.

Those crazy Mexicans.
