Recently, a friend passed along a hilarious video of a four-seater teeter-totter in the middle of a bull’s arena. The bull was let loose and the four men on each of the cardinal points of the teeter-totter would lift off the ground as the bull came close to avoid having their legs gored. The video went from hilarious to causing-my-kids-to-ask-what-was-so-funny side-splitting uproarious as the men, one by one, jumped off the contraption and ran, bull in hot pursuit, to the fence to try to escape.
Dutifully, I forwarded the video to some of my online and off-line friends. One friend wrote back. Twice. The first time to ask how incredibly stupid can you get. The second time to point out that there are no women on the ride and went on to say that if men weren’t needed for reproduction that the process of natural selection would have phased them out long ago.
By the way, the friend who said that is male.
