Brit Jew Marries Dolphin

An unusual wedding ceremony was held in the southern resort town of Eilat on Wednesday, as Sharon Tendler, a 41-years-old Jewish millionaire from London married her beloved Cindy, a 35-years-old dolphin, Israel's leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Thursday.


The groom, a resident of the Eilat dolphin reef, met Tendler 15 years ago, when she first visited the resort. The British rock concert producer took a liking to the dolphin and has made a habit of traveling to Eilat two or three times a year and spending time with her underwater sweetheart.


I suppose if I was a non-judgmental person I would have to say something about how everyone is entitled to pursue happiness in their own unique way, yada yada. Luckily I’m non-non-judgmental, so I get to say that this woman should be committed to some form of psychiatric institution.

Yuck, I was imagining their private moments together. Maybe I could sell the pictures to Playboy?

Is this really legal?

Unlike the above commenters, this story does not move me to seek to operate the long arms of the state to control the woman. If she's that crazy, why is it my problem? It doesn't "pick my pocket nor break my leg".

Will ponies be next?

Are you sure that isn't some sort of a joke? I mean, the wedding implies beastiality, and I thought that was pretty against the law in Israel. Or am I mistaken?

MHA

It's true that this neither "picks my pocket not breaks my leg".

Of course, the same could be said for pretty much everything that happens in the world. Why should I care about the people in Iraq or Afghanistan or Africa or North Korea? Or in America for that matter?

If somebody busts into your home and bludgeons you to death, how does that break MY leg? It does not, really.

Flenser,

Interesting points. If we as a society choose to allow muggers to remain unpunished for their deeds, then that creates a harm to you, at least probabilistically. Are you implying that you fear a danger of being married to a dolphin at some time in the near future?

I wonder if they are planning a family?

It is all a scam,the dolphin is just trying to get a British passport,either that or it's after the money.

Is he a Muslim dolphin? Is it a pleasure marriage?

And I thought the English eccentric was an endangered species. English + money = genteel nuts. Anyway, the marriage gives a new meaning to water sports.
