No doubt the bull after gorging the hapless runner felt engorged but the runner no matter what condition he was in could not feel engored.

Hi art, they did fix it fairly quickly. It made me chuckle picturing a bull chowing down on some poor runner. It's bad enough to think a herbivore wants to impale you and toss you around like a rag doll without eating you as well.

I was reading about this year's Stawell Gift foot race and noted something of interest about the winner, Luke Versace.

Apart from having a fashionable name "The expecting father's previous biggest claim to fame was being gorged by a bull at the running of the bulls in Pamplona in Spain in 2002. ohmy.gif from ABC news online.
