In before I listen to say my money is on @beschizza having hacked @xeni 's login to post a video singing “Never Gonna Give You Up.”

Or, you know, maybe I did.

Gonna go listen now and report back…

In case you don’t speak Donkey, he’s saying, “I KNEW Itzhak Perlman. And you ma;am, are no Itzhak Perlman.”.

Anyone else thinking of Brother Heinrich’s Christmas ?

“… As for the donkey that sings in the choir, your Abbot fears I might think him a strange sight. Well, my friends, there are times” – the Archbishop looked at his wine glass – “when I see sights far stranger than a harmless donkey singing in a choir. Long may he continue a member! Though he only sings two notes, there are surely times when those two notes are exactly the right ones.”

What a lovely creature.
We had a dog that would sing along with my mothers piano.

A donkey singing along with MY violin playing back in the day could only have improved it.

My parents had donkeys on their farm. And one year at Christmas Time a local Church asked to borrow one.
It was in the “Rich Peoples” part of town…Mountain Book Alabama . Courtney Cox is from there.
Tho this was early 70’s.

Well, Popcorn—the donkey is about two days into the living Nativity scene at the church and just snaps…he’s had enough. Bites one of the wise men, kicks out the wall of Creche, breaks his teather…and heads off to the green pastures of Mt Book Golf course, where rich people in golf carts try to lasso him with improvised lassos made from ski ropes.

Well, that failed so they called a nearby Zoo to shoot the beast with a tranquilizer dart

So, I’m walking home from school…walking through the field…and this Uhaul pulls up and they basically pour this stoned donkey out of the back. Popcorn sits up on his haunches like a dog and starts braying…and swaying; and for about 12 hours…this donkey is sitting upright stoned as heck braying and swaying back and forth.
Well, it was a memorable Christmas moment.
