A Load of Old Bull...



Staying in the vibrant city that is New York, head downtown into the financial district, and then on to Wall Street, and you’ll be lucky enough to stumble upon this huge great charging bronze bull.

Rumour has it that if you rub its testicles then you will have good luck in the stock market, but at the time I wasn’t interested in that. Indeed, it was most difficult statue to stand by, as there were permanently ten tourists attempting to take a photo of the 7,000lb bullock. Never mind, in the end I just took the bull by the horns and got down and struck a pose.

Were you mooing when that picture was taken?

A fierce sounding moo, yes...

The photo doesn't truly catch it unfortunately, but there also was a significant amount of steam coming out of the nostrils.
