Fearless José the bullfighter

Flames were shooting out of the building windows, the firefighters were on the scene with their hoses, the large safety-net had been deployed, and still Fearless José refused to escape the building. No matter how much the firefighters begged and pleaded, he stayed determinedly on the roof, loudly proclaiming to all and sundry: "I am Fearless José the bullfighter who fears nothing, not even fire."

The firefighters had gotten very, very sick and tired of hearing this same phrase over and over.

Finally, when the flames began to scorch his butt, José announced he had changed his mind and was ready to jump -- and then he leaped off the rooftop. As he hurtled toward the safety-net, the four firemen holding the net shouted, "Olé!" and quickly moved it aside.
