Buggery~ The Newest Word To My Vocabulary

Buggery, according to the dictionary, is defined as either:

1. The criminal offense of anal or oral penetration of the male organ into the anus or mouth of another

2. The criminal offense of a person having sex with an animal, also known as bestiality

This new vocabulary word was discovered by doing what we Americans do most. That is reading. I was reading an article about an old man named Freddie James who was arrested for having sex with a dog. Now that old man is 79, so I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and say he didn't know what he was doing. However, next door neighbors/owners of the dog thought otherwise.

These snitches called the police on the old guy. Sex with animals is supposed to be a laughable matter, but the police didn't seem to see the humor in it. James was arrested and charged with buggery. Buggery was written in the article, which made me wonder if the writer had spelled burglary wrong. Nope, the writer meant what was written.

If you didn't know before the criminal act of having sex with animals is called buggery. You can be arrested and put in jail for this crime. I'm not sure how I'll be able to use this new word that has found it's way into my mind, but it will get used again.
