I understand these are popular

As my old granny used to say, sometimes you’ve just got to show a little ass.

Brits love their donkeys. Brits love other people’s donkeys. There are all sorts of charities for taking care of donkeys overseas. Our European neighbors have a bad habit of using donkeys hard and then…throwing them off of rooftops and such.

Seriously, it’s true. There’s some festival in Spain where they throw a donkey off the roof. Mostly they just work them to death, though. The lucky ones end up here.

Though this young ass is 100% British born, I think.

I can’t imagine our enlightened World War starting Euro masters would do things like this!

That’s horrid.

It occurs to me we here in the New World could let the Dons have their festival, spare the real donkeys, and solve our problems with Congress by arranging for some exchanges – donkey for donkey as it were.

They sacrifice all kinds of animals in Spain in horrible ways, according to the internet. Donkeys, bulls, goats, even dog hanging. It’s amazing that they don’t have weasel stomping day.

These events pale in comparison to the tens of thousands of animals slaughtered every year at festivals in Nepal, or in the muslim Eid extravaganza of blood. Because their god told them to.

Donkeys are the DEW Line Squadron for livestock here in Texas. They are loud and aggressive against coyotes and bobcats, and will protect sheep and goats, beeves and horses. And people just like them, too, for cropping the grounds around the homestead—and once again—for sounding an alarm at danger.

DEW line – that sounds vaguely like a Cold Warish thingie officially used once a year to track Santa Claus.

A toast to all us geezers who’ve ruined the world, and managed to live through the thermonuclear summer, followed by the thermonuclear winter that was always about to happen any minute.

Duck and cover kids!
