The pub.

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

The pub.

A bloke in the pub told me that he had been given a locket for his birthday. He put his own photograph in it because he wanted to be independent.

That reminds me of the intriguing phenomenon of sologamy, (i.e. people marrying themselves) — see, for instance, this 2017 story in The Telegraph.

Sologamy sounds an interesting concept. If she sleeps with someone, is it adultery? Can she divorce herself? If she does, can she have a maintenance order? :D

I love the fact that she chose a Unitarian church though. :wink:

Bah-dum bump!

So, is sologamy even legal? In the U.S., could one take a "married" deduction on one's taxes? It's mighty large, compared to the deduction for an "individual".

In most places it's not illegal (as far as I'm aware), but it has no legal standing. So no additional deductions are available to sologamists: if they were, I assume that the vast majority of single adults would be married to themselves.
