Animal Husbandry

Apparently Florida was trying to make bestiality illegal (because it apparently wasn’t already).  This is a priceless example of how stupid politicians can be:

This irreplaceable moment came during a debate to outlaw bestiality in Florida, which appears to be perfectly legal at the current time. When an exception for animal husbandry was raised, State Senator Bullard was alarmed: “People are taking these animals as their husbands? What’s husbandry?”

I wasn’t exactly raised a farm boy, but even I know what animal husbandry is.  What’s scary is that apparently this State Senator is vice chair of the Agriculture Committee.  God help farmers in Florida with this kind of leadership!

  1. To be fair, with all the new and innovative definitions of marriage out there, perhaps this poor legislator was genuinely confused. I saw a news item a while back about an Israeli woman who wanted permission to marry a dolphin, and some professor lobbying New Zealand’s government to legalize incest. My head almost exploded when I saw the headline, “Heidi Klum to marry Seal.” (I didn’t know that Seal was a musician, not the acquatic mammal.)

  2. This gives me an idea. Once Obama finally gets a family dog, I’m going to marry it and then move into the White House for some juicy fly-on-the-wall blog fodder.
