Bull Tales

Bull Tales
Dear Talking Bull,

Bring back the Slop Spot!

As an avid reader of Talking Bull in its printed guise, one of the regular contributions I always looked out for was 'The Slop Spot'.

Isn't it about time it came back?

Anyway, apparently in the west Shropshire village of Bagbury there is an old legend which tells of a roaring ghostly bull which terrorised local people for many years before they finally shrunk it and buried it under the entrance stone of a neighbouring church.

The spirit bull was said to be the reincarnation of a cruel and wicked farmer from Bagbury who became of spectral bovine form on the utterance of his deathbed confession.

It is said that the people of Bagbury, led by their parson, drove the bull into the church at nearby Hyssington which lies over the border in Wales.

Trapped in the church, according to legend the ghostly bull raged so wildly that it cracked the sides of the church but was eventually shrunk by the parson reading bible texts by candlelight.

Once the bull was small enough, the locals tied him inside an old boot and buried him under the entrance stone of the church where he still resides with the warning that should anyone ever release him he will grow to an even larger and more ferocious form than before.

As our spirits seem quite low at the moment, perhaps it's time to set the Bull free again in Sloppyland!

Let the carnage begin.

Horribull
