Donkeys. They are nice animals; a bit smelly, rather useful on mountain passes and beaches and their milk is the nearest animal milk to human breastmilk. However, they really should learn the Green Cross Code. Yesterday I read with mounting horror that a group of our hee-hawing, equine friends had been run over on a road in Mursley near Milton Keynes. You might imagine that they had strayed innocently on to the road but no they were sitting in the middle of the road. Along came an unsuspecting motorist and bang, the eeyores copped it. Why oh why donkeys were you sitting in the road? Was it a protest at the closure of a donkey sanctuary? Were you laying down some ass-phalt (do you see what I did there?), were you just tired and fancied a sit down. So many questions, such thick donkeys!
