Raton The Bull Kills Three: Newcastle United Allow Joey Barton To Smoke Cigars During Matches

by | 15th, August 2011

RATON the bull has now killed three men in Spain. The Guardian reports that death is good for business. It’s bullish (geddit?!)

Because of the animal’s reputation, his owners reportedly earn €10,000 (£8,750) each time it appears at a festival.

“He’s the one that gets the highest prices,” owner Gregorio de Jesus said of Raton. “But still he works out the cheapest because wherever he goes organizers double the ticket price.”

Well, you need to keep the price up in case it’s the fan’s last visit.

Of course, it is thrilling to dice with death in the face of a fearsome opponent. Which is why Newcastle should cash in on Joey Barton by equipping him with a burning cigar on the field of play and in the tunnel and post-match interviews. The one great regret is that clubs did not hand out face masks of Matthew Simmons at grounds where Manchester United hothead Eric Cantona played.

Ole!
