In honor of Bill Crider's site-Filrtatious Cows

Balinese Teen Forced to Marry Flirtatious Cow
An 18-year-old Balinese man, Ngurah Alit, was caught in a rice paddy sexing up a cow doggie style after it had flirted with him. To cleanse his village he was forced into marrying the cow—but he passed out.

Yesterday was to be the big day for Alit, a young unemployed man from a coastal village on the Indonesian island of Bali. But, according to The Jakarta Globe, the cow had to pay for his sins and was drowned in the ocean as part of the ceremony. An understandably nervous Alit passed out and it is unclear whether vows were exchanged before the cow was killed. According to one villager, Alit was symbolically drowned, and "only his clothes were thrown into the sea." The village chief, Ida Bagus Legawa, said that the village had been "cleansed."

I was out of town this weekend. That's my only excuse for letting you beat me to this one.

There's a Texas longhorn joke in there somewhere.

This story is great! Thanks for posting it. I'll be laughing all day. The truth is ALWAYS stranger than fiction.

On second thought, Can we convince James to work this scenario into a Longarm novel somehow?

I was going to suggest that this could be the core of Richard Wheeler's contribution to LONGARM, but maybe that won't fly. RJR has also noted the blaming the victim tragedy we see played out here.
