An American tourist went into a restaurant in a Spanish provincial city for
dinner, and asked to be served the specialty of the house. When the dish
arrived, he asked what kind of meat it contained.
"Senor, these are the cojones," the waiter replied.
"The what, you say?" exclaimed the tourist.
"They are the testicles of the bull killed in the ring today," explained the
The tourist gulped but tasted the dish anyway, and found it delicious.
Returning the following evening, he asked for the same dish. After he finished
the meal, the tourist commented to the waiter: "Today's cojones are much
saltier and smaller than the ones I had yesterday."
"True, senor," agreed the waiter. "You see the bull, he does not always lose."
