Nappies for donkeys

WTF quote of the day:

If we have to put nappies on our donkeys, soon they will say our cows need them too.

That’s a donkey-owner (as opposed to a donkey owner) from Limuru speaking, where the authorities want donkeys to wear nappies. I really don’t see what the fuss is about. Donkeys are people too.

PS: I intend to start a movement to put lingerie on cows. They need our support. Please join me.
