Donkeys ordered to wear diapers in Egypt

Egypt News. Net : Tuesday 30th Dec, 2008(IANS) 

Donkeys have been banned from walking around in the streets of Egypt's southwestern al-  Wadi al-Gadeed governorates without wearing diapers, an official said.

Mohammed Haround said the measure was to 'preserve the aesthetic and cultural scene of the governorate which currently witnesses an unprecedented boom in tourism'.

'Diapers are available in the markets at low prices,' Haroun was quoted by the official MENA news agency as saying Tuesday. He added that owners of the donkeys who violate this decision will be fined.

Donkeys are vital for many Egyptians since they can easily carry 20-30 percent of their body weight and are helpful in farming. Donkeys and donkey-drawn carts are a common sight in Egypt's cities and countryside.

Donkey Sent To Jail In Egypt

 

A donkey has been sent to jail in the Nile Delta in Egypt for stealing corn!

The donkey and its owner were both arrested by police after the donkey was found in possession of corn on the cob stolen from a field belonging to the local Agricultural Research Institute.

A special checkpoint had been set up to trap the perpetrators after the Institute’s director complained that someone was stealing his crops.

Later, a local judge sentenced the donkey to 24 hours in prison, whilst the owner escaped a custodial sentence and received only a fine of $9.

oh God, it is a prime example of Arab stupidity.

Arresting the donkey would be better for the donkey, it wont have to work its ass off (pun intended) and will get free food.

Tazeen - Well to be fair,i guess we all have our stupid moments..
I am sure we can find examples of such ridiculous stupidity of us Indians too, albeit this not being the subject of this post. Look at our media for instance and you will know we are way ahead of any nationality to top the list for "silly".

Afaque - Lol... But I would have to agree with Tazeen on this one Arresting the donkey would be better for the donkey, it wont have to work its ass off (pun intended) and will get free food. :P

Paradox Philic said...
