    What a dumb ass...

    Seriously, it's about time the government cracked down on rampaging donkeys. Enough is enough.

    Now if they'd only take care of the goat that snacked on my laundry last week.

    unbelievable, but this is the same culture that will stone a daughter to death for dating, elsewhere religious "Mullas" condemn Mickey Mouse to death as an agent of Satan.:rolleyes:

    Before The Internets™ we were safe from the knowledge that this kind of stuff went on in other places. Anyone else long for the old, more innocent days?

    To be fair, I'm with them on the Mickey Mouse thing. Pure evil, that mouse.

    There are no "Mullas" in Egypt and no stoning and no Mickey Mouse "condemnation" business. Stop reading the onion and buy yourself a map. I lived a big chunk of my life there, in Cairo. Egypt is not Afghanistan.

    Yet they jail asses (and presumably other animals). Careful what you defend.

    The animal could act as his own council, and have an ass for a lawyer. [​IMG]

    about damn time! why is it that only humans are held responsible for their actions?! I hope the rest of the world starts imprisoning animals. Their days of freeloading are OVER!

    There are only two claims to pride you have that I am aware of: a five-thousand-year-old cultural history and an errant donkey. You choose the donkey...

    I find the law being upheld no matter your species most ass-uring.

    Actually, a Muslim Cleric by the name of Mr. Munajid issued a 'fatwa' against mice and specifically mentioned Mickey Mouse in the process. One point of clarification, Mr. Munajid as far as I can tell, is not from Egypt but rather Saudi. Still, it's an Islamic 'fatwa', and the majority of Egyptians are Islamic.

    Here's one source: http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/61629/Mickey-Mouse-facing-fatwa

    There are others sources, my daughter uses an Egyptian newspaper to do reports on current events for school that had an article on it as well.

    How about someone get the donkey set free, then dismiss the claim as a frivolous law suit. :D :rolleyes:
