At least nine runners were gored in the 6th day of the bull run honoring the feast of San Fermin. The bull run was unusually dangerous, because at least one of the bulls stopped running and started targeting individual runners, onlookers said.

American counter-terrorism experts have suggested that the bulls are linked to an Al Qaeda cell in Spain, possibly radicalized by 'sleeper' cows on their rural farms. They further suggested that Pamplona was specifically targetted because it is an Opus Dei 'field site' for the Vatican.

Asked for a comment, the Vatican press secretary simply snorted in derision.

Were the runners who were targeted not Catholic?

Way, way south.
That really isn't very funny. Not because of any political reason, it's just not very humorous.

Do you honestly find it humorous? As stated, it's just lame, not for any other reason....

It is lame. Especially since AML's dream of Al Queda winning seems to be, not coming true :P

I believe we need to agree that we find humor in entirely different places, you and I.

To wit, I believe you are a major Jon Stewart fan, correct?
