Sudan man forced to ‘marry’ goat

Sudan man forced to ‘marry’ goat
(BBC)
The goat’s owner, Mr Alifi, said he surprised the man with his goat and took him to a council of elders.

They ordered the man, Mr Tombe, to pay a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars ($50) to Mr Alifi.

“We have given him the goat, and as far as we know they are still together,” Mr Alifi said.

Charming. Maybe they’ll honeymoon in Capri.

Of course, and I repeat myself, this is all old hat for the Indians.

Girl weds dog to break ‘evil spell’
“Members of the village jury asked us to get her married to a dog or to face the bad omen,” the girl’s father was quoted as saying by the AFP news agency.

The tribe elders said the marriage would not affect the girl’s life, and that she would be free to marry again later and did not need to divorce the dog.

Bow wow! And then there are those who hate humans marrying each other. Sheesh! Get some sensible elders, yo!

This is why there aren't any new posts. So much for artificial intelligence.
