Burro Haul

From the people who brought you Stalin, pogroms and the assassination of Pope John Paul I:

Police in southern Russia are investigating allegations of animal cruelty after a donkey was made to parasail as part of an advertising stunt, Russian media report.

Witnesses near the beach on the Sea of Azov in the Krasnodar region said the animal had been screaming in fear.

It landed in the water and was pulled onto the shore, said police.

"The donkey screamed and children cried," regional police spokeswoman Larisa Tuchkova told AFP news agency.

The donkey screamed and children cried. We hope you're happy, Russia.


The Burro Hall Travel Advisory for the Failed State of Arizona is expanded to include the Krasnodar region of southern Russia.

Sorta puts trying to carry 18 monkeys in socks through Mexican customs into perspective, doesn't it?

By the way. When Olga was born in Mexico, her Russian/Jewish (or Ukranian) father was already 50 or 60, Elias Breeskin. When he was a kid, he was a child prodigy and he played the violin for the Arch Duke Franz Josef, uncle of Maximilian. He moved to New York and he got an stradivarious violin. incredible life.

I think you should publish another map of the world with all the new Failed State of Arizona places marked off -- maybe you could color code in a nice petroleum spill brown/orange color.
Please color in Pakistan where they torture bears on the street for public enjoyment.

In Australia some young men were caught smuggling budgies in their underwear while trying to pass through customs. The Australians now call men's underwear "budgie smugglers." Guess Mexican socks can now be called "monkey smugglers."

Maybe you can have a tv reality show where you pit all the beautiful Olgas in a para-sailing match against the donkey. Donkey doesn't have to compete again, you can compare youtube videos of the Olgas to the donkey's to determine the winner(s). Would go great as part of the swimsuit competition for the beauty pageants.

All these suggestions need to be put in the form of a shareholders' resolution and presented at the next annual Burro Hall Enterprises shareholders meeting on Sept 30. The rules on this are very clear.

Burro should put an image of himself parasailing side to side with the video of Olga Breesking parasailing. Just to compare......

This is so funny. No doubt that there is a YouTube video for every situation. A video of a Burro sailing, and then somebody mentions the Mex-Russian lady, and then somebody finds a video of this same lady sailing, just like the before mentioned burro. Funny.
