PAMPLONA, Spain - The Pamplona Chamber of Commerce has revealed that for the first time in its history the chamber has found itself in the red.

Chamber of Commerce President Ricardo Bernardo Machismo, 47, spoke at a recent meeting and informed the chamber members that due to the recent Spanish Hat Factory Vs. The Pamplona Chamber of Commerce litigation in which lawyers for the hat company won a $7.8 million settlement the chamber has really found itself in a very sad financial situation.

Mr. Machismo stated that the kissing booth, which was run by this years Miss Pamplona, the fantastically sexy-looking Manolita de la Vavavoom, did manage to bring in $37,000, but the chamber of commerce is still in the red.

A highly disappointed Mr. Machismo stated that as a result the chamber members have voted 3 to 2 to cut future expenses by doing away with next years traditional Pamplona Running of The Bulls Celebration.

Machismo noted that it was suggested that instead of The Running of the Bulls, the city will sponsor the much cheaper Running of The Chickens.

SIDENOTE: French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy who have attended the last three Running of The Bulls in Pamplona have already sent word that they will not be attending next years Running of The Chickens.

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