What's the difference between Mick Jagger and a Scotsman?

Mick Jagger says "Hey, you, get off of my cloud."

A Scotsman says "Hey, McCloud, get off of my ewe!"

 

What's the difference between David Hasselhoff and a German?

David Hasselhoof says "I can't stop this feeling, deep inside of me."

A German says "I can't stop this feeling, deep inside of ewe."

 

Well, maybe not for much longer. The German legislature is considering a bill that would ban bestiality. Apparently some in the country take issue with their fellow Germans banging a sheep, then sheering it, spinning the wool into thread, turning the white thread into a sheet, and sending it to France for them to surrender with. You know, German-style bestiality. Or regular-style. Whatever.

What's great about this new law is that it isn't just correcting some oversight. It's not as though the Germans just never got around to criminalizing bestiality. They actually passed a law making it legal in 1969.

And here's the kicker, that law was passed as part of a broader let-your-freak-flag-fly movement which also decriminalized homosexuality. So you know how you hear the argument that if we let two dudes get married, what's to stop a dude from marrying his dog? Well maybe it's not just crazy ignorant homophobic redneck babble. In Germany that's actually what happened. "Oh, gays can have sex now? Screw it, might as well let everything through."

Not that the argument has that much weight, but damn, it does have a historical precedent.
