Feb 24, 2006 (MALAKAL) — A certain Mr Tombe was caught having an intimate relation with a goat belonging to a Mr Alifi at Hai Malakal — Upper Nile State, southern Sudan — on February 13. Tombe was ordered to pay the goat’s dowry and take the animal as his wife .

Mr Alifi said: "It was around midnight when Tombe came to do his nonsense on my goat, and I was already in bed inside my house. Suddenly , I heard the goat make a loud noise. Immediately, I rushed outside to find Mr Tombe was naked and engaged in a relation with my goat . When I asked him what are you doing there, he fell off the back of the goat, so I captured and tied him up".

Alifi then brought some elders to decide the fate of the goat defiler.

"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 agreed immediately to pay for the goat, and paid half the dowry 150,000 Sudanese dinars up front.

"We have given him the goat, and as far as we know , they are still together", Mr Alifi concluded.

    Even after all this time, this is still hysterical! ’Nonsense on my goat’ indeed.

    Was Rose fed that plastic on purpose to kill her? Was Mr. Tombe tired of his wife?

    I know there are very serious issues in the world, including, of course, the tragedy in Darfur.

    But it’s good to get a laugh once in a while, too.
