Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

NSFW A Sudanese goat-fancier has been forced to walk down the aisle with his four-legged victim after the animal's owner caught him in flagrante delicto, the Juba Post via Ananova reports.

The matter is, however, not one of honour but of hard cash. The goat's owner, Mr Alifi, described how he heard a noise outside his house and rushed out to find one Mr Tombe going at his hammer-and-tongs with the unfortunate beast. He continued: "When I asked him: 'What are you doing there?' he fell off the back of the goat, so I captured and tied him up."

A quick consultation with the local elders led to a radical judgement, Alifi said: "They said I should not take him to the police, but rather let him pay a dowry for my goat because he used it as his wife."

Accordingly, Tombe had to cough up 15,000 Sudanese dinars - almost 40 quid - for his bout of goat-worrying. Mr Alifi confirmed a happy ending all round with: "We have given him the goat, and as far as we know they are still together." ®
