A wandering Frenchman came to rue the day he ever attempted to get his two asses into Sweden, after customs officials demanded a veterinary examination of the pair costing €250, the Local reports. For reasons not entirely explained, Jacques Abdelaziz from Brittany has spent the last two months travelling Europe with a couple of …
Mine's the donkey jacket.
Serves him right...
...for not rowing across.
"unless he was able to produce biometric passports for the shifty-looking beasts of burden."
and that folks is how you successfully add an IT angle to an otherwise daft story
i thought the story was about Nicolas Sarkozy going on a whistestop tour of northern europe with Gordon Brown and Boris Johnson.
Imagine my surprise when it was about donkeys!
And the IT angle is...
Mine's the one with the long ears and tail.
Check out the site
called Nounou, which means fanny in English as in virgina :D ha ha.
UK civil servants
Please take note.
A touch of humanity really is inspiring. The border official should be commended for merit.
Alan Moore rides again
Wasn't Abdelaziz a 2000AD Future Shocks character- The Man with Two Brains??? As usual some other idiot has got hold of another excellent Alan Moore idea and rewritten it- This time as The Man with Two Asses.
Wot's that when it's at home ?
What a surprise, indeed
I thought it was regarding someone with two exits and four posterior cheeks.
A dyslexic twat?
Bloody French donkeys coming over here to take the jobs of ours on the beach. Just bloody swim ashore and set up shop. This is what you get with the EU - French donkeys invading our shores - they couldn't do it before when Nelson gave them a good spanking, now they are sneaking in via our seaside resorts.
One minute it's donkeys - the next there's no more burgers just waffles and odd pancakes. Send 'em back with a french loaf up their asses.
Shame he wasn't trying to import his two faux-horses into France. They'd have eaten them.
Come to think of it, what's the best wine to serve with donkey? I'm thinking something like a young Shiraz.
I'll get my humane killer....
No, it just means Nanny, as in the nice lady who looks after your screaming pre-school sprogs while you make a donkey of yourself posting asinine comments to Reg articles instead of working.
Cos as soon as they would have crossed the Channel, both donkeys probably would have caught Foot and Mouth disease or something else as likely and probably drop dead within a week
An ass quote
Hood an ass with reverend purple
So you can hide his two ambitious ears
And he shall pass for a cathedral doctor
(Ben Jonson, Volpone Act 1, Scene 2)
I don't blame him for not wanting to visit the UK
as being the police state it is, I wouldn't want to set foot there either. And I was born there!
mmmmm i'd rather have had him examined by a vet ;) oh dang i'm getting racist again o0
If he had shared the dingy with the drunk bloke they could have ensured that both made it across and could have avoided customs totally.

...I believe it was Abelard Snazz..
The IT Angle
Well it mentions "ass" several times. That's good enough for me. :-)
Paris, because even though as far as I know she is only in possession of a single ass well, just because!
thought it might have been a body shock type story
as I read it initially as arses :)
I can't believe nobody's noticed.....
A French itinerant wandering round Europe with two Donkeys?
That'll be two asses and a bum then.
if you have to ass't for the IT angle, it would take two long to explain.
No Dr. Mephisto angle, then.
How utterly disappointing.
And now for something completely different...
"Didn't we just do this sketch?"
"I thought we were doing the continental version."
I thought this was something to do with...
... A man with three buttocks
/me silly walks away...
and he even remembered
to carry his Ipod for the picture!
