You know, sometimes I ask myself, "What the . . . ?"
There's a mob out there who reckon eating tiger scrotum makes them better lovers. So tigers are hunted. Others eat sharks because they think it's a cure for some sort of itch. So kaput go the sharks. And whales, I'm sure, are good for something else.
Basically, people believe in all sorts of things.
And now in India, we get this: "Girl Marries Dog". Believe it or not.
