It’s That Time of Year Again!

And of course I’m talking about that annual jubilee that so inspires us all with its gaiety, feasting and just plain fun! Yes it’s the Baby Jumping Festival!

Once again, just as they have since 1620, the population of Castrillo de Murcia, Spain will be gathered in the streets to watch grown men dressed like the Colacho or Devil leap over rows of giggling infants in a celebration meant to ward off the devil. The event is held as part of the Catholic Feast of Corpus Christi.

Though doctors were standing by, there were no crushed little skulls or other injuries at this years event. Body count statistics are not available for previous years.

    Madness. If the jumper crashes onto the babies and the babies get injured or die, their parents will surely chop off the limbs of the jumper and leave him to bleed to death in a public vigilante execution.
