Nanny knows best

Thanks to Simon Titley for drawing this BBC story to my attention:

A Sudanese man has been forced to take a goat as his "wife", after he was caught having sex with the animal.

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.

I guess the only real surprise from this story is that the press have not managed to prove that Mr Tombe is a candidate for leadership of the Liberal Democrats.

But give them time ...
