I had no idea touching, or I should say caressing, or maybe even squeezing the Wall Street bulls’ balls was a must do on your vacation to New York City.  At least it seems that way from this video below, where tourists flock to the bull to take pictures and grab its balls.  One tourist even gets right in there and puts two hands on the bulls’ balls. Props to her.

For the most part, it looks like most of these ball touchers are international visitors from France, Spain and other parts of Europe, from what I can tell.  I guess visitors from across the United States aren’t so much in favor of ball touching. They prefer to take pictures with the bull from the front, with the horns and all.

I wonder if this could turn into some kind of ritual hazing for Wall Street firms, send the new kid down to get his picture taken while touching the bulls’ balls. Then again, it could be some kind of good luck thing, as in have you touched the Wall Street bulls’ balls this year, you better, otherwise you’ll have a bad year.

Update: This is not the first time the bull has been played with so to speak, someone spray painted the bulls’ balls blue a few years back.
