This is kind of a sad story not at all befitting the circus music in the video, with no comedic kick. A bull in Wuhan, Hubei province managed to escape from its slaughterhouse on Saturday — who knows what inspirational dash it made, eluding its human captors while cheered by his fellow inmates as if it were Chief running toward a rising sun, a new life, freedom. In the movie version of this — Buffalo: Bull in the City — our protagonist would be adopted by an idiosyncratic old zookeeper with a heart of gold and live out its life as a chaperone for dogs and cats.
This bull here ran against traffic, caused a three-hour jam, seriously pissed off the officers chasing him, evacuated itself (it appears) near the end, and — as we speak — has probably been slaughtered and is headed toward someone’s plate. #RealLife
When I first saw the headline, I thought it was a Mo Yan-style fable or allegory about Chinese globalization.
The better recent event for that would be the penguin eating its young.
Even in the afterlife, steak from this bull is bound to fall off your plate in a mistaken attempt to make a break from it.
Barring that, this steak is all gristle that will continue to fight its way out of your lower intestines, slither through a pipe of the worse filth imaginable and finally escape to freedom to hold up its arms in triumph in the rain like Tim Robbins from “Shawshawk”.
