The Donkey’s Tale

Have you ever wondered why Mexican donkeys are often made of paper mache? Well, last week this 'ere swimming pool was full and the kids were all having a grand time pulling my tail. Well, as you can imagine, it wasn't long before they pulled it and I followed, straight in, ears and all. Yeah, you guessed it, the paper kept me afloat. But the darn kids pulled the plug out and now I can't go for a swim, despite the fact I can't drown and it is 40 ℃ in the shade.

Ye ha, that's life, I suppose!
