Tomatina

Regardless of which legend one believes, what began in 1945 as a few tossed tomatoes as a show of disdain has developed into full-fledged tomato warfare in Buñol, Valencia, Spain, on the last Wednesday in August.

I am and have always been one that enjoyed spirited antics but with the millions of people starving these days, why not switch to small rocks. And now here in the U.S. of A, there is the water bucked challenge, god-damn humans are stupid; yes we have drought problems here presently.
