back to article NAME that DONKEY: Bella bests Barbarella

I'm pleased to report that after a not inconsiderable amount of pondering, and some behind-the-scenes third-party lobbying, my daughter has finally decided on a name for the latest addition to the El Reg Iberian bureau's asinine fold.

Banksy Bella.

Good choice. She's _such_ a cutie.

(I did suggest "Beatrix" but on second thoughts our beloved Mediatrix might have thought I was referring to her in animal terms. But, like Lester, she does have a ni....NOOOO!!!! ;-)

... on his boss's computer, and then set the 'immutable' bit, he's simply a PFY. Or even worse, just a Boss if he hasn't tipped off the RSPCA...

Thinking about it...

What do you actually do with the donkeys?

Are they for showing, or do the foals get sold on as working animals?

Nice ass

Sorry, could not resist that one. She is indeed a cutie.

As to "I'd like to make it clear that my daughter has not seen the Twilight movie series." - for your daughter's sake please try and keep it that way, a bigger load of brain-rot would be hard to find.
