King Mswati III of Swaziland held court Sunday over the annual Reed Dance ceremony to choose his thirteenth wife from 50,000 eligible virgins clad in short skirts and not much else. Oh sure, the ceremony has its detractors, but do ya think the 37 year old King cares? He might not care during the ceremony, but one participant made a very practical point.
Police officer in training Patience Dlamini shared the following wisdom:
"This thing of many wives is not good, how does he satisfy them all?"
It may be good to be the King, but we know the Queens will ultimately rule.
