A wry view of life for the world-weary

Irony Of The Week (2)

bullrun

I’ve said it before and, doubtless I will say it again but it is irony that makes the world go round. I can’t get enough of it.

Bill Hillmann, the co-author of the book “Fiesta : How To Survive The Bulls of Pamplona”, which was published last month, is recovering in hospital from severe but not life-threatening injuries sustained – yes, you guessed it – when facing off (as I think the technical expression is) the heaviest of six bulls in the third run of the San Fermin in Pamplona. Not sure whether he slipped on the outpourings from his book.

Let’s hope he did well in pre-sales otherwise it is one for the remainders pile.

..and on an unrelated subject, I learnt yesterday that the Chief Executive of the Howard League for Penal Reform is Frances Crook. Naturally!
