Homo Delphinus

Having previously looked at the magical world of dolphins and how they are leading us all into the new brighter future where woo rules and the fairies dance at the bottom of the garden, EoR was not overly suprised to find this report about Sharon Tendler, who is ushering in the new age in her own way:
In a modest ceremony at Dolphin Reef in the southern Israeli port of Eilat, Tendler, a 41-year-old British citizen, apparently became the world's first person to "marry" a dolphin. Dressed in a white dress, a veil and pink flowers in her hair, Tendler got down on one knee on the dock and gave Cindy a kiss. And a piece of herring.

EoR does, however, have a few concerns with this: shouldn't she be marrying a dolphin nearer her own age? And why is she rushing back off to London to leave Cindy (and just what sort of name is that for a male dolphin?) frustrated at her absence and having to satisfy himself with the second-rate local dolphins? And where will they set up the nuptial home? In a London flat, or beneath a tropical reef?
"He will still play with all the other girls there," she said, of their prenuptial agreement. "I hope he has a lot of baby dolphins with the other dolphins. The more dolphins the better."

How on earth does a dolphin legally accept a prenuptial agreement?

EoR raises a glass to Mr and Mrs Tendler. At least they won't be breeding any little Tendlerlets to carry on this strain of lunacy.

  1. I get the distinct feeling that shortly after commenting on this post, I'm going to see:

    A) A guy in rags who walks up to the camera and says "It's..."

    B) A guy with a blond afro and five foot nose hairs.

    C) Two members of ACROSS
