    I have no idea whether or not this story is true as I could not access the site. The story was on another board. But when I read it out loud to Barry, we were both laughing out loud so hard I had a hard time finishing it.

    His comment? "There's something fishy going on here..."

    For what it's worth, here you go....

    Brit Jew marries dolphin

    Unusual wedding: British woman marries her beloved dolphin in Eilat ceremony
    Joe Kot

    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.

    After a years-long romance, Tendler decided to embark on the highly unusual path of tying the knot with her beloved dolphin. Last week, she approached Cindy's trainer Maya Zilber with the extraordinary request.

    Zilber accepted the challenge and "talked the idea over with the fellow," who apparently consented.

    'I'm not a pervert'

    And so on Wednesday afternoon, the thrilled bride, wearing a white dress, walked down the dock before hundreds of astounded visitors and kneeled down before her groom, who was waiting in the water.

    Cindy, escorted by his fellow best-men dolphins, swam over to Tendler and she hugged him, whispered sweet nothings in his ear, and kissed him in front of the cheering crowd.

    After the ceremony was sealed with some mackerels, Tendler was tossed into the water by her friends so that she could swim with her new husband.

    "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.

    Tendler said she and her newly wed husband will probably spend their wedding night bowling.

    "But what kind of children would they have?" one of the children in the crowd asked his father.

    I think it is offishal.

    Here's the link. TILL DEPTH DO US PART: Click Here

    (that was one of the comments sent into the article, hehe)

    And now, I must comment myself.

    Will they greet each other with Shalo instead of Shalom?

    When their first child is born and named Shelly, will people come to "see Shelley"?

    On behalf of all Jewish mothers, I feel I must comment to the girl: "Cindy? What kind of name is that for a nice Jewish boy? IS he Jewish? What's thah mattah with folks these days, that they can't give their son a proper name? Oy vey, I'm tellin ya, it's no wonder I have a headache all of the time trying to keep up this and that he's marrying her and she's marrying it and oh, go fetch me a cup of tea, my aching head, where can a woman get a decent cup of tea around here?"

    Will she refer to her husband as an absolute doll or an absolute fin? And why such a fin ity for the creature anyhow?

    I'm almost sorry I woke back up, because there's just SO many puns in this one I may not be able to fall asleep for making myself laugh!

    Unfortunately, the marriage broke up after just more than a month.

    However, it's not a total loss. Sharon has written a book about the experience.

    40 Days of Porpoise. Surely there will be a sequel, perhaps The Porpoise Driven Life?

    Cindy developed a tumor to the left of his dorsal fin and had to see a sturgeon Sharon was mad because as his wife she had to shell out hard earned clams.

    I heard that because of the mismatch there definitely will not be children unless by adoption. Cindy is opting for a gull.

    I'd bet that his favorite show is 'Flipper' and hers is 'Sea Hunt'

    What's the best tuna you happen to see? forget the tuna, and leave that dolphin alone too, he's my brother-in-law. Ha!
