I smell Eurovision success.

Imagine Harriet the Singing Donkey performing ‘My Lovely Horse’:

Donkey can sing better than I can.

F# methinks. Someone should sample Harriet and then use her voice to sing a duet of Ave Maria with Clara Rockmore on theremin. You know - if they have the time. Just a thought.

I was presented with a Verified Female Singles ad while viewing that. Anything to do with her marital status?

For anyone who doesn’t speak donkey, she’s yelling “Please kill me! Please, oh please kill me!”
