(Cleveland Plain Dealer)   Remember the good old days when you could raise money to pay for an after-prom party by hosting a Donkey Ball game where adults play basketball while riding donkeys and nobody protested?   (cleveland.com ) divider line

Beaver Knievel: Old Smokie: I don't mind people riding donkeys, but carrying the average american around on your back is probably abuse to any species.

Ha Ha Ha! What a clever, and ORIGINAL witticism! It's funny because it's true! All Americans are fat, just like all blacks are lazy and love fried chicken and watermelon, and all Britsh have bad teeth, and every German is a Nazi...Right?


When I say it, they just call me crazy and block me. Nice to see someone else join the fray.

That being said, I don't have a problem with the donkey ball thing. It's silly and I think fairly harmless. I'm not for animal abuse, but I don't think this falls in that category.

neongoats: Is it weird that I'm from Ohio and have NEVER, and I mean, NEVER heard of this before. Who knew there were enough donkeys in the state to even field a team.


I grew up in northern OH and I remember this - saw it maybe twice, and the donkeys were pretty docile, friendly animals.

phrawgh: Thanks Obummer. What's next? I bet the Obamascare Islamic death panels will force mothers to abort white, Christian babies. Help us Jesus!


Well, bless your little heart!

You're not the only one. I grew up in Cleveland, not too far from Brunswick, and this is a new one on me.

Played in a donkey basketball game my senior year (2003) as far as I know, they still play it in rural PA with no issues. That being said, my home town isn't a place I visit voluntarily.

I'm 32, and I've never heard of a Donkey Ball. I thought this was going to be about a video of a girl farking a donkey, and people protesting it.

fusillade762: I would think that their hooves would seriously fark up the basketball court. And/or they'd be slipping and sliding all over the place.


They actually make rubber soled horse shoes for horses, donkeys, and mules.  You have to use them on hoofed animals that regularly walk across concrete, or other smooth surfaces, or else as you say, they slip all over the place.

You could just ignore the protesters.

I'm originally from Mansfield, currently live in Canton and I've never heard of this either. I'll have to ask my aunt & uncles if they have.

They got a problem with cowsh*t?


Animal rights activists have protested cow bingo because it is undignified for the cow.

We had one of these games at my high school in the early 90s. The school was preparing to replace the gym floor so they did the donkey basketball game without any worries about damage. IIRC, the donkeys wore rubber 'shoes' so there weren't any slips or accidents.
