Wish I'd had my camera for this one -- a few days back, I was over at Home Depot, and there was a fellow there wearing a t-shirt celebrating the virtues of cockfighting. I don't know Spanish, but it was pretty obviously in favor of the practice, rather than opposed (one image of the cocks fighting, another of a single proud rooster). Weirder still, if my interpretation was correct, it appeared to be boosting one particular bird.
I've seen it all now. Shirts celebrating a favorite team? Normal enough. Shirts celebrating favorite NASCAR drivers? Sure, whatever. Favorite bands? Authors? Video games? Sure. But a favorite (sorry) cock? What a strange world.

A whole bundle of new quality hockey links added to the right, most discovered during my surfing as the five weird things posts spread across the internet like wildfire. Please welcome Ingmar Bergman, Jerseys and Hockey Love, the Battle of California, Stick in Rink, Sisu Hockey, and Orland Kurtenblog. All good sites, all undoubtedly thrilled to be forever linked to a post about cockfighting.
