I guess “man bites dog” is :
NEW DELHI - A man in southern India married a female dog in a traditional Hindu ceremony as an attempt to atone for stoning two other dogs to death — an act he believes cursed him — a newspaper reported Tuesday.
P. Selvakumar married the sari-draped former stray named Selvi, chosen by family members and then bathed and clothed for the ceremony Sunday at a Hindu temple in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, the Hindustan Times newspaper said.
Selvakumar, 33, told the paper he had been suffering since he stoned two dogs to death and hung their bodies from a tree 15 years ago.
Scott Adams comments:
A number of things struck me about this wedding. I shall start with the most obvious jokes first.
The report was quick to mention that the dog is female. That was a relief because allowing a man to marry a gay dog would be a slippery slope.
Heh. Adams has more so RTWT.
Actually this whole incident just prompts to wonder what sort of skeletons my wife has in her closet that she had to atone for by marrying me. Come to think of it, I probably don’t want to know.
