Lovesick swan falls in love with swan paddle boat

A swan has fallen in love with a plastic swan-shaped paddle boat on a pond in the German town of Muenster and has spent the past three weeks flirting with the vessel five times its size, a sailing instructor said Friday.

Peter Overschmidt, who operates a sailing school and rents the two-seat paddle boat on the Aasee pond, said the black swan with a bright red beak has not left the white swan boat's side since it flew in one day in early May.

"It seems like he's fallen in love," said Overschmidt. "He protects it, sits next to it all the time and chases away any sail boats that get anywhere nearby. He thinks the boat is a strong and attractive swan."

Overschmidt said the swan will figure it out sooner or later but hopes he won't be too heartbroken.

"I'll wish him all the best and hope that he doesn't make the same mistake again," said Overschmidt."

I can understand the swan, actually... Why do all lovers need to be real, flesh and bone people? Me and my Rubber Mary are inseparable, and ain't nothing gonna change that in the near future.

Well, maybe if a grrrl manages to look at me without going "Eww", something could be worked out, but 'till then... :sex:

Cheers! :bottle:
