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. Since the fine jenny was born during our second year of breeding operations, we asked readers …
That's one serious looking donkey...
... I wonder what it's planning.
Revenge for being named "Bella"?
Whilst donkeys are definitely the most serious looking of all hoofed animals, that one is clearly pondering something.
Possibly wondering if it'll be involved in the next project launched from the Reg's donkey sanctuary / spaceport.
The mother appears to have some sort of Donkey Mullet....
Lovely creatures though!
@Scott, IIRC that's to stop them over-heating.
Correct - the asinine mullet is essential in summer, otherwise the heat could kill 'em.
So how long...
...before you wake up and find stencilled rats all over the wall, and two adorable kids blaming the donkey?
That's my weekly allowance of creatures, very cute.
Sounds like an Ubuntu release...
Yeah, good one!
..but would that be before the invention of the Abacus?
Good idea, but what about "Belligerent Burro"?
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!!!! ;-)
If any BOFH hasn't put this photo:
... 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?
IT because it's the only one with a question mark.
Re: Thinking about it...
There a plan in development to do donkey rides for kids. We shall see...
"Banksy Bella's name is, therefore, purely coincidental and in no way a comment on Kristen Stewart's acting skills."
And yet, perhaps inadvertently, it is. It _so_ is...
... children don't like recursive backronyms.
Because he or she will undoubtedly have quite a kick.
I would really prefer Kong Jr., but not if it means waiting another 8 years...
Sorry it'd be "Burrita", if anything. Gender specific suffixes have befouled your otherwise fine pun.
Thinking caps on for next year's "C" event
Cameron D'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.
