As The Debate Rages .....

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope restates gay marriage ban after California vote.

SACRAMENTO, CA - Activists on both sides of the gay marriage debate were shocked this November, when a typographical error in California's Proposition 8 changed the state constitution to restrict marriage to a union between "one man and one wolfman," instantly nullifying every marriage except those comprised of an adult male and his lycanthrope partner. "The people of California made their voices heard today, and reaffirmed our age-old belief that the only union sanctioned in God's eyes is the union between a man and another man possessed by an ungodly lupine curse," state Sen. Tim McClintock said at a hastily organized rally celebrating passage of the new law. But opponents, including Bakersfield resident Patricia Millard—who is now legally banned from marrying her boyfriend, a human, non-wolfman male—claim it infringes on their civil liberties. "I love James just as much as a wolfman loves his husband," Millard said. "We deserve the same rights as any horrifying mythical abomination."

Prodnose: Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man anyone?

Myself: Cursed with lycanthropy, Larry Talbot, (Lon Chaney), is searching for Dr. Frankenstein's missing diary to try and find a cure, but in Vasaria's ruined castle he discovers the Frankenstein monster, (Bela Lugosi), encased in ice and thaws him out. With scientist, Dr. Frank Mannering and Frankenstein's daughter Elsa, Talbot follows Frankenstein's notes, in the hope of completing a cure, but when the villagers discover that the monster is again on the prowl they blow up the dam and flood the castle while the Wolfman and the Frankenstein monster engage in a titanic battle.

Prodnose: They don't fall in love?

Myself: No, but never mind, for the 1943 film is set in the fictitious town of Llanwelly, Wales, with some references to Cardiff.

Prodnose: Hoorah! "Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers at night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright..." boyo!

Myself: Free wheeling gibberish this, even by our own exalted standards. Remember the Penylan ghost?
