You Can't Make This Stuff Up

Women's rights activists in Uganda finally got the attention of the Western press in December, when London's The Independent verified the plight of Jennipher Alupot, who periodically for seven years had been forced to breastfeed her husband's hunting dogs as she was nursing the couple's own children. Farmer Nathan Awoloi of Pallisa explained that his dogs needed to eat, and since he was forced to send Jennipher's family two milk cows in order to win her hand, he felt his demands were reasonable. [The Independent, 12-31-09]

Scene:

I'm reading this post. DW walks by in the hallway and I can't resist saying out loud "What's wrong with that?"

Maybe if she relents I can sleep in the garage tonight....

A reasonable request I suppose, but it would seem feeding the dogs ought to be a "shared" responsibility................and dogs do eat meat don't they?

Reminds me of "Why buy the cow when you get the milk for free"

But as DW says, "Why buy the pig when all you want is the sausage."

Out of respect for your feelings, the number of dogs involved has been omitted from the article.
