Promotion of Bullfighter’s Memoirs Shelved

Published by PETA.

I can’t believe that anyone would waste precious time or money on a memoir about a bullfighter’s lifelong abuse and slaughter of bulls.

That said, 67-year-old British matador Frank Evans somehow managed to find a publisher for his book, The Last British Bullfighter,* but he just lost out on a big promotion by U.K. bookstore chain Waterstone’s.

Waterstone’s scrapped its plans to promote Evans’ book, thanks to a flood of complaints from PETA Europe and other animal protection groups.

I also can’t believe that this elderly man, who’s had a quadruple bypass and knee replacement, has come out of retirement to torment bulls again (sad news, which Blog Guy at “Oddly Enough” managed to make amusing).

Frank, if you’re out there: Enough bull already! Lay down the damn sword, pick up a metal detector, and stroll off into the sunset.
