To Get Your Goat

I live in the South. I have since 1978. I’ve heard all the jokes. Some are deserved, some not. Those who hate Gays, and seem to have a mission to prevent them from having the same rights as most other humans, seem to live here in higher numbers than say New York or California. Their rallying cry is that if we permit Gay marriage soon we’ll permit Man on dog, on goat, on otter, on rooster, on aardvark; which I suppose would really… suck.

Never guess what. Some of Southern states like Florida, already do…

“Rich’s legislation would target only those who derived or helped others derive ‘sexual gratification” from an animal, specifying that conventional dog-judging contests and animal-husbandry practices are permissible.”

“That last provision tripped up Miami Democratic Sen. Larcenia Bullard.”

“‘People are taking these animals as their husbands? What’s husbandry?’ she asked.”

“Some senators stifled their laughter as Sen. Charlie Dean, an Inverness Republican, explained that husbandry is raising and caring for animals.”

“Bullard didn’t get it.”

The offender who inspired this moment of Tom Lehrer-like laughter… (As in Lehrer’s on stage comment, “I majored in Animal Husbandry until I got caught at it.) …was about recent legislation to ban man on animal action. In another “I’m not making this up” moment, he is from Mossy Head, Florida. He choked a goat to death during a sex act. One must ask, did the moss in your Mossy Head moment not provide enough lubrication?
