"One day I walked into my office. I was standing and looking out my window, and this horse trailer drives up and some media vans. This cowboy gets out. All of a sudden it just dawned on me: He was gonna ask for a marriage license for his horse," Rorex says.

Throughout history, one thing has remained truly constant: conservatives being dicks.

I have to give her a lot of credit for the brilliance of her response.

Also, we have to take a blood test to be sure you're not both related. You certainly resemble your fiancee's hindquarters.

I think you just don't understand cowboys.  Women come and go, but a horse is a companion you can trust with your life.

Wow, that lady was hot back in 1975.  I'd build a time machine to go back and hit that!

1975? But I thought nobody ever considered the idea of marriage until Ted Olsen and David Boies decided to file suit against Prop 8. That's what  Forcing the Spring told me.

Kit Fister: I just saw that the Colorado court upheld the ban.

Sorry, but that's just a temporary injunction until the appeal goes through.  Pretty standard thing, actually.  Granted, a LOT of folks (lawyers included) like to read it as if it means that what happens in the stay will happen in the court, but that isn't necessarily the case.

Yes, and apparently he was a pedophile.

"I just was this young woman in this place at this point in time," she tells Larson. "And thank goodness I made that decision, because it would be so hard for me to look myself in the mirror today if I had not made the decision then."

Non ironic use of the Hero tag? Noice!

I liked the way she dealt with the cowboy too. Explaining the concept of consent to the guy might have taken a while.

"So the cowboy comes in and asked for a marriage license, and I started taking information. I ask him his name and Dolly's name - Dolly was the horse. And I said, 'And how old is Dolly?' He said, 'Eight.' And I put my pen down, calm as could be, and said, 'Well, I'm sorry, but that's too young without parental approval,' " Rorex recalls with a laugh.

8 seems like it should be too young even with parental approval.

Why buy the horse when you get the cow for free?

I want to know why these fark tards stopped trying to marry horses, and instead switched to turtles. Is it the shorter lifespan? Or that some turtles can breathe through their ass, which would probably come in handy for these sexual deviants?

This is Colorado! We won't have none of those fancy big city blood tests of yours.

\Also you can marry your cousin.
