Benidorm

His dog.

Juan Carlos
The Spanish national anthem goes “Only Juan Carlos, there’s only Juan Carlos”.

Siesta
Every lunchtime, the Spanish take two hours off work to go home and watch repeats of Rantzen in “That’s Life”.

Bullfighting
The consumer injustices detailed in the programme make them so annoyed they then have to watch men beating up innocent animals.

Picador
Any door.

Toreador
Conservative bullfighter.

Labrador
Socialist bullfighter.

Red rag
The Morning Star. Often waved at right-wing bulls to wind them up.

General Franco
Right-wing bull.

Running with the bulls
A curious tendency. Most people would find running away from the bulls a more sensible proposition.

Conclusion
Most tourists who arrive in Spain are damp. This is because the weather there is so good that any rain has to fall on the plane.
