caution: bullfighting may cause a severe sore throat

21 may 2010: spanish bullfighter julio aparicio slipped in a bullring, fell to the ground and a 1,168 pound bull drove his right horn through aparicio's throat and out his mouth.

aparicio is reportedly in grave but stable condition due to an infection following surgery to reconstruct his throat, mouth and palate. ~ nbc sports
