pinpi_0005_72The following bertso lines were improvised by the bertsolaria knowned as Xenpelar in Lezo Feast of the Cross. In those days there were two pseudo bertso singers, Juxto and Lonjinos, who would always make the audience laugh with their nonsensical and foolish ideas. On that day Justo and Xenpelar made a funny bet about who would sing the most irrational verses. The bertsolaria to compose the most illogical lines would be warmerly applauded by the crowd; that was the rule of the game. No matter how irrational their content was, Xenpelar arranged and dressed his verses so gracefully, that it was Juxto who received the longest rounds of applause.
