Commenting article: Bulgarian PM Condemns Barbaric 'Dog Spinning' Ritual

Boyko Borisov, Bulgaria's Prime Minister has opposed the ancient ritual of dog spinning, which was recently renewed in a southeastern village, declared it barbarian and called for sanctions.

In dog spinning, which is practiced in Brodilovo, a southeastern Bulgarian village, at the beginning of March, a dog is suspended above water on a rope.

The dog is turned repeatedly in a given direction to wind the rope, then released so that it spins rapidly in the opposite direction as the rope unwinds, until the dog falls into the water. The locals claim that the dog is not supposed to be physically hurt.

I will not start by saying Bulgarians are barbarians.

I only will say it when this inhuman "ritual" is not condemned legally as a crime.

You lost the argument the moment you resorted to this "durta turkinya baba" nonsense. It may have worked wonderfully in the past but not anymore.

If you cannot provide proof to your serious accusations, then you just destroyed your own credibility. Anything you say will not be believed.

Babo nellie

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

On second thoughts, before they try and hoist you up for the dog spinning, they had better ensure they have an engineer on hand to calculate the structure can take your weight.
