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.
