Last Friday I asked for “bad puns” in response to a picture I posted of a bull getting revenge on a matador.

Writers have such fertile minds. I thought it would be fun to see what you came up with. I called it a contest, but there were no winners or losers. It was only intended as an outlet for our collective creativity.

But, someone emailed me privately, suggesting that the pic was “risky”. They never said they were offended, but were concerned for my reputation. If I offended any of you, then please forgive me. I never intended to be crass or vulgar.

I’ll try to be more sensitive in my picture selection in the future.

It’s hard to find uniqueness in the Christian-writer blogosphere. If anyone else does this already, I am unaware. Why not do it here?

I plan to run the contest as a regular Friday thing here at the Rant. Think of it as a creative challenge. We’ll see how it goes.

Gina, I may be deranged, but I got a chuckle out of it too.

I’ll post another picture on Friday.

Personally, I thought it took ____ to post the picture. JUST KIDDING EVERYONE! PLEASE, NOT HATE EMAIL!

Actually, posting the pic depends on one's point of view.

David, just don't get horned in to doing what everyone else does. Just stick to what you are doing. Everything else is just bull.

Well, better go and finish my mocha. Bottoms up!

Good evening David....I think this is a unique idea and one I have not seen before...I also have been contemplating something different on my blog Fridays (other than shutting it down LOL!)but my idea is not that unique...
God Bless you
