Rewarding mischief with carrots

In funny ha ha on Thursday, 6 October, 2011 at 20:28

Man, donkeys are awesome. The way these wonderfully stubborn creatures buck and kick these silly humans as they uselessly and feebly attempt to control (or even co-exist with) them is a joy. I don’t know where this was, but it looks like a hoot. I take extra glee in this excerpt from a NY Times article about the “sport”:

“The sport turns on the donkeys’ stubborn nature, a quality that is encouraged by the referees. Some are trained to buck or to duck their necks — sending the players sliding to the floor — and referees reward the mischief with carrots.”

Rewarding mischief with carrots– fantastic. I need to play donkey basketball before I die.
