This Hub Is 100% Complete Bull

I would like to welcome all of friends to the hub of all hubs. There's no arguing the fact that this hub is 100% complete bull. It doesn't matter if it's Bullwinkle, the Chicago Bulls, the Schlitz malt liquor bulls, Red bull energy drinks or a complete herd of charging bulls, because it's just all bull. Speaking of charging bulls, how do you stop a bull from charging? That's easy, just take away the bull's credit card. (P.S. That was an attempt at a joke. LOL)

There's the awesome line up of all of the different Schlitz Malt Liquor bulls. This certainly isn't a beverage for the weak at heart. It got quite an alcoholic punch to it, and this might be the drink for those looking for a little hair on their chest.

Let's not forget the good ole bulldog, which is also the mascot for a whole bunch of different universitys. I wonder if that can get confusing for the fans when two of these Bulldog teams are playing one another. Here's a list of those colleges -

  • Adrian College (Mascot name: Bruiser)
  • Alabama A&M University
  • Allan Hancock College (Mascot name: Spike)
  • Arkansas Tech University (Mascot name: Jerry)
  • Ave Maria University

  • College of San Mateo
  • Concordia University, Nebraska
  • Dean College (Mascot name: Boomer)
  • DeSales University
  • Drake University (Mascot name: Spike)
  • Ferris State University (Mascot Name: Brutus)
  • Gardner-Webb University (Team name: Runnin' Bulldogs, Mascot name: Barney the Bulldog)
  • Georgetown University (Team name: Hoyas, Mascot name: Jack the Bulldog)
  • University of Georgia (Mascot name: Uga, Costumed Mascot: Hairy Dawg)

Getting away from all of those active college bulldog mascots, there's plenty of other activities out there that have a lot of bull in them. Some of those activities that contain 100% complete bull are bull riding competitions at rodeos like the Cody Wyoming rodeo, which just so happens to be the rodeo capital of the world. There's the very famous Running of the Bulls, which is a crazy practice in Spain Portugal, and some cities in Mexico that involves simple ordinary people running in front of a small group of about 6 bulls on a course of a sectioned off town streets. I can promise you one thing, and that is you won't see me in any of these pictures running in front of six angry bulls. Besides I don't think I can or could ever out run a bull. There's bullfighting which is a traditional spectacle of Spain, Portugal, France, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela and Peru in which one or more bulls are fought in a bullring by a matador. Although there are no elements of competition in bullfighting, it is still defined as a blood sport. Some followers of bullfighting prefer to view it as a fine art and not a sport.

I saved the best for last, and you better believe that there's a whole lot of bull included with this topic. For the last topic of bull in this hub there's Red Bull energy drinks. People have alleged that Red Bull is no more effective than a cup of coffee or a simple little caffeine pill. According to a class action lawsuit filed against Red Bull there aren't any reliable studies that support Red Bull’s claims that the energy drink is superior to cheaper alternatives. The Red Bull class action lawsuits also made claims for the breach of express warranty, unjust enrichment, and violations of consumer protection statutes. A $13 million settlement has been reached in two consumer class action lawsuits that allege that the company misrepresented the function and safety of its own energy drinks. Red Bull has offered class members who purchased at least one Red Bull can in the past 12 years the option of choosing either a $10 reimbursement, or $15 worth of Red Bull products. No proof of purchase is required, and you can register your claim until March 2nd 2015. (It's certainly something to think about) Be patient, because It's also been reported that the Red Bull refund site has repeatedly crashed due to a surge in traffic. Of coarse Red Bull denies any wrongdoing and maintains that its marketing and labeling have always been truthful and accurate. It certainly looks like there are some different types of bull floating around here with this topic, and that is TheHoleStory!

What about Bull Run? That was a loada bull to start off your Civil War (more like 'un-civil, like ours have been).

Another couple of ways of telling that joke,

1) Q: 'How do you stop a bull from charging?' A: 'Turn off the power';

2) Q: 'How do you stop a bull from charging?' A: 'Don't give him your card'.

Ta-ram!
