Rain was found on this bull's back near Madrid

Scientists measuring rainfall in Spain have discovered that, contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of rainfall does not fall on the plain.

For centuries now, grandmas everywhere have been telling gullible children that 'the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain', but leading precipitation experts now say that this is just not the case, with just as much rain falling on mountain sides, in rivers, valleys, in forests and on rooftops.

"Some rain DOES fall on plains, but to say that rain MAINLY falls on plains, is incredibly misleading", said Professor Roberto Dikhead of Barcelona University's Rainfall Study programme.

During the course of the study, more than 143,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 droplets of rain were scrutinised, and the locations of where they fell recorded. Whilst a good proportion of rain did, indeed, fall on Spain's main plains, many other droplets fell elsewhere, including 672 on a bull's back near Madrid. So there.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
