    Naked bullfighters (fighteresses?)!

    It's extreme porn! The bizzies will be round shortly for your re-programming.

    I agree!

    We should stop sticking bullpikes in nubile women forthwith!

    I like that. Sexy, but also brings to mind Mohammed Ali's famous cover picture.

    Lucky bull... I suppose the other guys would display a fine set of horns for the chanteuse...

    Now that's a fine figure of a woman.

    No stick insects need apply, Finally a woman with a proportionate amount of body to go with her breasts. Imagine that, real breasts, real body, not a stick with two balloons. Wow.

    Oh, as someone suggested, I'm sure that this could be extreme porn, and if we were to turn it into a cartoon and add a caption explaining that the 15 year old singer was physically very mature, we could probably get arrested for having proscribed cartoon child porn as well. If she's holding a Transformer's T-shirt, Heathrow security would be interested, and I'm sure that the copy of the Islamic Jihad's latest policy documents conveniently translated into English will get her deported as well. They can deport here my way any time they like.

    Mines the one with the smile.

    RE: Tomorrow I will launching my own naked poster campaign

    Yup. At first—and second, and third—glance I thought it was an artists rendition. Maybe there is a real photo somewhere beneath. The higher resolution version does not help. Not at all. We will never know.

    We need more people at these things supporting the bulls. Loudly and with banners hats and T-shirts.

    "Veteran Spanish singer Alaska"

    She doesn't look that old. Or is that why there is so much airbrushing..?

    (And why is she bleeding ink?)

    And how's this going to stop bullfighting?

    PETA: We'll keep doing pictures of improbable naked women until you stop killing bulls.

    Everyone else: OK, OK, we'll stop! Anything but that! Wait a second - did they say improbable naked women or John Prescott?

    Mine's the one artfully moved at the last possible second.

    Hmm

    Looks like she's fallen asleep in a damp copy of Hola magazine the daft bint. Wonder if they were just playing join the dots with her blackheads? Is it true one of her hits was a goat chucked off one of those clock towers? It would account for her slightly comatose disposition.

    I'll stop now. Where's my coat and funny Mickey Mouse hat?

    @Adam Peters

    Actually..

    A scene showing gratuitous violence [being stabbed] designed to sexually arouse - I find it obscene, and I want all of you arrested.

    I concur on the tats.

    Mines the one with the horn. Er, horns. On the hood. *cough*

    Makes me feel bullish!

    This looks more like a recruiting poster trying to get bulls to sign up than a an anti-bullfighting one.

    I bet this also draws more Spanish-challenged punters to the bullfights. Beats mud wrestling any day.

    Exactly true

    As of January (?) possession of that image will be a sex offence. Be ready.

    Any excuse, Lester...interesting to see the Spanish question their national sport like this, Zapatero is having some effect on the country. The skin might be Photoshopped but the "pechos" are genuine, from a quick check of her videos.

    Now find an excuse for a pic of Mónica Naranjo, more my idea of guapa...

    Nice picture but...

    It's illegal under the extreme porn section of the CJB, as has already been pointed out.

    Be interesting to see if similar adverts attempted in the UK fall foul of this "legislation"...

    Good

    Inspirational pictures for those of the male disposition at least, even if there was a little bit to much Photoshop going around that pic. Ironically enough, my first (well, after a while) thoght was "couldn't they have done a better Photoshop job on those arrows?? it looks quite amateurish".

    NSFW... I'm seeing that type of shot on commercials and warning signs in radiological diagnostic labs over here in Brazil these days. Kinda refreshing from the American landscape, IMHO. :-)

    I think...

    ...it was *supposed* to be unrealistic in a kind of '40s pinup way.

    At any rate, bullfighting is one of the more horrible things I've seen humans do. I'm no great fan of peta, but I'm with them all the way on this.

  27. Steve

    What a dilema!

    Support bull-fighting or support PETA? It's a tough call when PETA kills over 90% of the animals given to it to be adopted.

    Personally, I think the bull-fighting should be allowed as long as it's one on one - get rid of the guys who half kill the bull before-hand. If you want to pick a fight now, then good luck to you.

    I would LOVE to see on of those guys go head to head with a pissed off bull that DIDN'T have all the swords and spikes stuck in his back. If the bull could swing his head side to side like normal, it would be over in seconds.

    @cowarde anonyme

    english is just a mashup of german and latin anyway. about 40% of the words are french, chanteuse is one of the more obvious examples. Example is another example. "Lark" comes from German. Don't tell the BNP, they might get annoyed. I mean enuié.

    @AC: "Pretty sure...

    ...that picture is illegal in the UK."

    I understood (perhaps wrongly) that was only the case if the image was produced for sexual gratification. Since The Register is a benign entity incapable of sustaining an erection, it is not breaking the law.

    If you're busily tugging away at it like there's no tomorrow until you pass out, then you probably are breaking the law.

    But how does the government prove that?

    Telescreens^W CCTV in the home FTW!

    Illegal image - good point - well made.

    Don't agree personally with this bull fighting lark... for a start, they don't give the bull a gun and the numbers are a bit uneven too, but I love the idea of throwing goats off high cliffs. Anyone know the whereabouts of BillyBoy?
