Brit Jew marries dolphin (Joe Kot, 12/29/05, ynet)

Till death do us part? 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.

"The peace and tranquility underwater, and his love, would calm me down," the excited bride said after the wedding.

Perhaps Rabbi Eric Yoffie put it best: "We cannot forget that when Hitler came to power in 1933, one of the first things that he did was ban human-dolphin weddings."

"I'm the happiest girl on earth," the bride said as she chocked back tears of emotion. "I made a dream come true, and I am not a pervert," she stressed"

Good, that's reassuring.

Obviously, you are anti-dolphin, you hater.

"Of course it's not murder if she now kills him, and she can always eat the evidence and use the bones to make a good soup stock. I wonder if it was really love at first sight

I are confused. Is "Cindy" a male or female dolphin? Because if it's a "lesbian marriage", that makes it all right.

Well, dolphinhood is innate, so it would hardly be fair to block this sort of thing.

I wonder if anyone's advised her on the risks of sex with large mammals. Unlike the guy in Washington, I bet Sharon goes by drowning.

"'I am not a pervert,' she stressed".

She's merely suffering from a romantic abnormality, one so unbelievable that it must be hidden from the public at all cost!

Those dolphin-friendly nets drive up the cost of tuna casserole, so, yes, I hate them.

Plus you can never find good Dolphin Helper.

I bet Mike Daley has a recipe for it, but if you eat the dolphin won't its spouse show up and accuse you of adultery?

I assume that Sharon is good friends with Dragon-wolfe Dolphinn.

Was that entirely necessary?

Dolphins are not kosher. Dolphins are also rapists of other dolphins and have attempted to rape women. A homosexualist dolphin in Norway even tried to rape a man:

I bet she did it for tax reasons. The UK has some peculiar laws.

Sorry, OJ, but it was something that was floating around the internet last summer. Popped up on Metafilter and Fark

"... and his love, would calm me down ..."

Yeah, Cindy is a dolphin dude. Phhhew. For a while I thought it was lesbian love. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Dolphin is not kosher, folks. Now, if she had married a salmon (smoked, preferably), that would be alright.

I can just hear the conversation in the PI's office, a few years down the road:

"I think my dolphin's having an affair. There's something fishy going on with him, that's for sure."

The "Love that dare not come up for air" will no longer be submerged!
