Default Running Of The Balls

Well alrighty then.

Two men sprinting down a Spanish town’s streets during its animal-friendly “Running over the balls” event were left with serious injuries after the 660-pound resin object flattened them along the course.

On the whole, I'd still say it beats getting a bull horn up the wazoo.

They should have called it "running with balls instead of brains"

It would be tough to weigh. Apparently, enough to break his head and put him in a coma.

After reading the title, I thought this had something to do with the "Smitty777" problem a few months back?

Not sure his "problem" was 660#'s though?
