The Cock Fight

Dear Sillies,

This post is dedicated to Al Penwasser (for reasons that defy explanation).

Bali isn't all harmony and rainbows, there's also cock fighting. When I listened to these men teach about the cock fight, I found my hands moving towards my midsection, to protect my tender nether regions...The cock fight - that one doesn't sit easily. Right? Guys, imagine your cocks trapped in cages until they're ready to do battle against other cocks! People gamble on the cock they want to win, and/or the one they themselves raised! Imagine the humiliation of your cock being publicly beaten by another man's cock. Men, and not their more peace-loving female counterparts, are all about the cock fight. 

"Do they always fight to the death?" I asked, cringing.
"No, not always. We stop it sometimes."
Phew! "Oh that's good." I really don't like the idea of a dead cock. 


Look at the sweet, staunch and proud dark cock on the right. And then look at mean Whitey, ready to pounce on him. (Kinda symbolic. Right?) 

This tradition goes back thousands of years. It's outlawed in many countries, but not Indonesia. 

After a fight, the beaten cock is cooked and devoured. 
In that sense, though I hate to admit it, I likely supported the cock fight. (I ate lots of delicious chicken.)

What are your thoughts and/or feelings about THE COCK FIGHT, my friends? Would you raise your, or someone else's, cock for such an endeavor?

  1. Cheers to Al - somehow the dedication fits.
    You, Robyn, make me giggle.
    Maybe sheathe the cocks in protective armor? Less of a mess?

    (and I prefer the origins of my chicken tenders to remain unknown)

    1. It does fit, doesn't it?
      Yeah, I know. I don't even want to think about the origins.

      Cheers.

  2. This post made me happier than ever that I don't have a cock.

    Love,
    Janie

  3. It's a popular sport in some Central American countries, too. As well as South Carolina, the lesser of the Carolinas, whose state university is "A Game Cock" I wish they could tax their fights so they would have enough money to fix their roads, but that's another subject.

    1. Ha. That's funny. As far as I know it's ILLEGAL in all 50 states. The lesser of the Carolina's must've missed (or couldn't read) the memo. ?

    2. I'm pretty sure it was legal in Arizona until a few years ago (well, maybe 20 years ago, but it was when I was living in Utah that they finally outlawed it).

    3. I think that it's currently outlawed throughout the US, but I don't know specifics on this. Our priorities are surely warped. I'm glad that it's outlawed, but so many other things need be outlawed first. Thanks, Sage.

  4. I wonder if they must meditate beforehand...”think of a cock, stroke to cock...be the cock.” Now as for the chickens, I feel bad for them

    1. Haha. "Be one with the cock." I could really get my zen on...until the fight begins.
      Thanks for always making me laugh, Birgit.

  5. Sigh. Yet another day to be glad to be vegetarian. How I wish that the people who promote and participate in cock fights put their own cocks on the line...

    1. That would be fitting and biblical. An eye for an eye, a cock for a cock...? Err, something like that. Thanks, EC.

  6. Back of our property and across the creek, we have a constantly shifting South American population in one house that has cockfights. They are preceded by mariachi and ranchera music and sometimes followed by gunfire. Having been brought up to believe entertainment should not have a mortality rate I enjoy the former, not the latter. Coincidentally, I have just now touched upon the subject of blessings and curses the universe confers on human activity at "Trainride Of The Enigmas".

    1. Currently? Yikes. Must be difficult to sleep.
      I shall pay a visit shortly. Thank you, Geo.

  7. Have the cocks ever tried to make peace? Is whatever they are fighting over really worth the effort? If they survive do they ever get to retire or travel a bit and see the sights? So many questions.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They really should be rewarded gratuitously if they survived. I'm doubtful, though. Poor cocks.
      I have no answers, only wanted to ask that one question.

  8. Sad and sick. Glad I'm vegan, too.

    1. It does inspire vegetarianism (which I assume is often/sometimes en route to veganism).

  9. At least the loser gets to be celebrated by being eaten!! I love fried chicken!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, they do present the loser in a beautifully delicious way, Holli. I've thought about and even tried vegetarianism for a stint, but it didn't take. Chicken would be very hard, and unpleasant, for me to avoid.

  10. I suppose that if my cock had lost such a battle, I'd definitely feel better if my cock were eaten later. I doubt the chickens have the same attitude.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, you wouldn't want to keep the cock after that kind of a beating. That'd be more embaassing than having no cock.

      Delete
    2. Ohhhh, my. I just realized that all these "cock" remarks could have had a double meaning. But I'm sure you didn't realize that, right, Robyn?

  11. When I saw the title, I IMMEDIATELY giggled.
    Yes, I'm a wrinkled, gray middle-schooler that way.

  12. I appreciated the humor in this post but the actually activity sickens me.

    1. I understand. I'm also disconcerted with many an American practice, and I admittedly haven't researched this enough to understand the ritual/spiritual piece. (I think there is one, and in Bali, it's tied to Hinduism, I believe).
      Anyway, thanks for chiming in, LD.

  13. Thinking about it makes me sad and feel sorry for the cocks, but, like you, I eat a lot of chicken, so I guess I have no room to talk.

    1. Yeah, and we do so much worse in this country. That was the only thing I didn't/don't appreciate about Balinese customs.

      Have a nice weekend, Connie.

  14. Hi Robyn !!!! Thanks for stopping by from Debs blog. It was great fun to do the contest. I have another swell blogger buddy from England who does one every year, but I never entered it, so this was fun. Now listen tootes, being a gay man I'm all for a good cock fight!!!!! But as a animal lover I hate to see animals pitted against each other for sport. I seems cruel, and rooster are very stunning looking birds...but I did enjoy your humor in it.

    Have a very nice weekend.

    1. Mistress Maddie! I'm excited to meet and have you join our chocolate shenanigans, handsome. I wish you rising, triumphant victory in every cock fight you witness or partake in.

      Have a great weekend. Thank you so much for the return follow and comment - you made me happy.

  15. To a noble fighting cock who's suffered defeat, it's probably kinder to lop his head off rather than have him the laughingstock of the barnyard--"Some cock!" (sniggers and giggles), "You looked a little droopy in there, boyo!" Eating him is a clean, honorable finish. Just my opinion.

    1. Haha! I love it, Margaret. You give everything an beautifully eloquent spin - even in reference to the losing cock.

      Great to see you, sweet lady. Be well.

  16. Điều cần lưu ý nhất là chế độ hồi phục sau khi đá về. Dĩ nhiên, không thể tránh khỏi tình trạng chú gà bị thương và cạn kiệt sức lực. Do đó hồi phục thể lực là điều cần thiết nhất. Bộ thuốc này bao gồm:

    – Thuốc Super five star: nhằm phục hồi năng lượng đã tiêu hao sau quá trình vận động kịch liệt.

    – Thuốc thông huyết: giúp gà lưu thông khí huyết, tan máu bầm, giảm sưng tấy. Gà sẽ mau chóng hết mệt và các vết thương mau lành hơn.
