TEAR­FUL CONGRESS

Fortean Times - - Strange Days -

An In­dian judge has de­clared that pea­cocks, the coun­try’s na­tional bird, are too holy to re­pro­duce nat­u­rally, but sire their off­spring through tears. “A pea­cock is a life­long celi­bate,” said Jus­tice Ma­hesh Chan­dra Sharma of the Ra­jasthan High Court. Pea­hens fall preg­nant af­ter swal­low­ing the pea­cock’s tears. The com­ments pro­voked de­ri­sion on so­cial me­dia and sev­eral videos of the birds mat­ing were posted.
