(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?   ( ) divider line 11

Bad news everyone. My donkey re-enactment of the attack on Pearl Harbor is cancelled.

Oh.  Donkey BALL.  You have NO idea how badly I misinterpreted that headline.

School and city officials, who are "big men, are going to be riding the little donkeys that I can't imagine enjoy playing basketball with bright lights and a screaming crowd of people,".

I was raised on a ranch.  I can't imagine donkeys enjoying ANYTHING aside from food and sex ;)

The Man, the Boy, and the Donkey
A man and his son were once going with their donkey to market. As they were walking along by his side a countryman passed them and said, "You fools, what is a donkey for but to ride upon?" So the man put the boy on the donkey, and they went on their way.
But soon they passed a group of men, one of whom said, "See that lazy youngster, he lets his father walk while he rides."
So the man ordered his boy to get off, and got on himself. But they hadn't gone far when they passed two women, one of whom said to the other, "Shame on that lazy lout to let his poor little son trudge along."
Well, the man didn't know what to do, but at last he took his boy up before him on the donkey. By this time they had come to the town, and the passersby began to jeer and point at them. The man stopped and asked what they were scoffing at.
The men said, "Aren't you ashamed of yourself for overloading that poor donkey of yours -- you and your hulking son?"
The man and boy got off and tried to think what to do. They thought and they thought, until at last they cut down a pole, tied the donkey's feet to it, and raised the pole and the donkey to their shoulders. They went along amid the laughter of all who met them until they came to a bridge, when the donkey, getting one of his feet loose, kicked out and caused the boy to drop his end of the pole. In the struggle the donkey fell over the bridge, and his forefeet being tied together, he was drowned.
Try to please everyone, and you will please no one.

I "played" donkey basketball a couple of times for different charities.  Trust me, it was the donkeys that did the abusing.  They were trained to make the players look like dolts.  But it was hilarious and it was fun to watch or to play.  Those games raised a good bit of money in their day.

If you're money, it's horses and polo and people don't raise these sort of silly objections.  But if you want to pick on the poors, go disrupt their half-assed attempts at half-assing their asses.

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

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.

Back in the 1970s, my high school held an annual donkey basketball game in the gym, faculty vs. students. As I recall, the donkeys looked bored.  No one complained about it.

Said high school also sold Near Beer at dances. People did complain about that, mainly because Near Beer sucks.
