Bulls is a rural town on the West Coast of New Zealand about 160 kilometres north of Wellington.The town is named after an English immigrant named James Bull who established the towns first general merchant store in 1862. Today the town really plays up the name by having things like a drive-thru-a-BULL Mc Donalds, Consta-BULL police station, Cure-a-bull Medical Centre ,an Antiques & Collecta-BULLS shop and another 2nd hand shop called called Afford-a-BULL.

    We went to Bull's too and enjoyed walking around taking photos of the funny sayings. Didn't see the football club one though. Wish I had a digital back then.

    I do like small towns for walking around & noticing the funny things of life = Bulls seem well advertised here!

    How things change! I grew up not too far from here (down the coast). Bulls was a non-event then. It's only claim was "the only place you can get milk from bulls" : )
