Justice, My Ass

Who’ll Count The Donkey Vote?

A Mexican donkey called Blacky has been freed from jail, where he spent three days for biting and kicking two men near a ranch outside Tuxtla Gutierrez, the capital of Chiapas state. He was freed after his owner, Mauro Gutierrez, paid a fine and hospital bill for the two injured men.

FOOTNOTE: Beg, steal or burro.

at least they didn't try to hang him...poor Jumbo the Elephant...I always rather hoped that at the last minute the rope broke and Jumbo fell on those in control of the rope...

So what were these men doing that close to a donkey and what were they doing?

Jailing Donkeys? Maybe it was possessed!

Poor donkey. Shouldn't the owner be responsible for the donkey's behaviour.

Well, did anyone bother to find out why the donkey did what it did? Perhaps it was perfectly justified. Perhaps those men were behaving badly and making jackasses of themselves.

I wouldn't want to be the one to share a jail cell with that a**!

I hope the fine wasn't asstronomical.

You've outdone yourself with both the footnote. Hilarious and brilliant.
