In a drastic attempt to exploit a religious loophole, Ethiopian President Mulatu Teshome yesterday announced plans to fast track a change in legislation which would legalise gay marriage in the predominantly Christian country, in a last ditch attempt to end drought.
The decision was made following talks with UKIP councillor David Silvester, who recently blamed the UK’s winter floods on the government’s decision to legalise gay marriage.
In a statement made last night, a spokesman for Mr Teshome said; ‘when Mr Silvester of UKIP confirmed that the recent floods in Henley-on-Thames were a punishment from the Lord, we realised we’d been doing it all wrong for all these years. We’ve been praying for water as reward for following the religious doctrines, but now it makes sense to use the wrath of the Almighty to our advantage and give gay marriage the green light’.
Joke of the day!!!
