In response to young Daniel’s heart warming tale of a man and the dog he loves, I present this oldie but goodie from way back in 2006. (The original article can be found here) While Daniel’s article is one of love… true love… this is one about making an honest woman of a goat. It seems Mr. Tombe was caught in the act of physical love with the goat, and the goats owner Mr. Alifi captured him and tied him up. He asked the village elders what he should do:
“They said I should not take him to the police, but rather let him pay a dowry for my goat because he used it as his wife”
Mr. Tombe was forced to pay a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars to Mr. Alifi which is equal to $63.32 today as opposed to $50 when the article was written meaning the Sudanese economy is catching up to us. It’s bad enough I will soon be learning to speak the language of my new red Chinese masters, but then I will have to learn whatever is spoken in Sudan?
