Man marries bitch

Those of us warning homosexualist marriage would to lead inter-species unions were proven right last Sunday when a man in Southern India married a female dog named Selvi. Alas, the honeymoon was over before it ever really started:

"During a feast attended by some 200 guests after the traditional Hindu wedding ceremony, Selvi grew restless and ran away."

But the newlyweds may have patched things up:

"She was subsequently recaptured and returned to her husband who gave her milk and a bun to eat."

It’s is easy to foresee what comes next: gay inter-species marriage, followed by increasingly disgusting combinations unpleasant to even imagine, leading inevitably to a transsexual marrying a bowl of pudding.


  1. I am curious about your usage of"homosexualist." I have always believed the term was almost exclusively the invention of Private Eye magazine. But is there another derivative?

  2. That's a good question. I first heard it from the Waugh's, but they didn't invent it.

    What I discovered using Google book search:

    The OED dates the word to 1931, which is wrong. It's apparently a German loan word, appearing at least as early as 1902 in the book Jahrbuch für sexuelle Zwischenstufen mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der Homosexualitat, By Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld. The earliest English usage that turns up is in an article in classics journal published in 1905.

    Interestingly, the journal is an American one, which makes me suspect there are earlier usages out there, the most likely path of transmission being Germany to the UK to the US.

  3. Auberon Waugh, the greatest journalist who ever lived, wrote for Private Eye for many years, so there is definitely a connection there!
    Anyway, it is a truly great word.
