Sudan Man "marries" Goat

A Sudanese man has been forced to "marry" a goat.

The goats owner found the man with the goat and village elders decided that as the man had used the goat as a wife he should pay the dowry.

What strikes me in this story... "used the goat as a wife"..

Used it.

as a wife.

God damnit I hate this world.

uh that was meant as humour..... honestly.

Yeah, this really cracked me up at first, but this is obviously not consensual sex. Poor goat! Who the hell would want to marry a human being? ;)

But doesn't that just mean he made the goat iron his shirts?

We had a similar situation in East Yorkshire a few years ago. An entire train full of passengers were witnesses at the court case. I don't think marriage was part of the sentence though.

PS. I was just checking that you had posted any really awful pictures ;)

I saw this on the BBC website and did a double take. Poor goat, imagine being stuck with such an awful man for life. Really when you think about it, he is a complete baaaastard. Sorry bad pun, couldn't resist it.
