The same country that gets liquored up and chased by bulls brings you . . .

La Tomatina.

Every year, the Spanish town of Bunol buys 100 tonnes of ripe plum tomatoes.

Every year, tens of thousands of participants grab the tomatoes and hurl them at each other, in the world’s biggest food fight.

That was today.

Apparently the annual tomato fight, fought for the first time in 1940, has no real significance; it’s just one more of those things you can do while drunk in Spain that would be frowned upon any other time of the year.

Tomatoes are probably a lot more fun (and safer) than bulls, though.
