West Fargo, ND – Our very own Burp McGuire answers a good question from one of our faithful readers.
Tammy LaConk asks: Dear Burp, what is the difference between a horse, a donkey, a mule, a jackass and a zebra?
Burp: Dear Tammy, thank you for your great question!
The answer is quite simple:
A male horse is called a stallion. A female horse is called a mare. A young donkey is called a foal. A male donkey is a jackass. A female donkey is known as a jennet or jenny. A male donkey is called a jack or an ass. A jackass is also called an ass or a jack. A burro is simply the Spanish word for donkey. A mule is the opposite of a hinny. A mule can either be a male or female. A zorse is the result of a male zebra and a female horse. A mule is the result of a male donkey and a female horse. A zedonk is the result of a male zebra and a female donkey. A hinny is the result of a male horse and a female donkey. A donkey has 62 chromosomes. A horse has 64 chromosomes. A mule has 63 chromosomes which is why they cannot reproduce. A mule is sterile because of its odd number of chromosomes. Some famous jackasses include AssAssin, Jassack, and SmartAss. One famous mule is Ferris Muler.
Fargo, ND – A couple of gay Love Donkeys will soon “tie the knot” at the local zoo. It’s believed to be the first known pair of gay Love Donkeys in captivity to be married within the confines of a zoo-type environment.
Rev. Matt Tramoni, the zoo pastor, says he believes we’ll be seeing more and more of this type of thing. “Now that gay marriage amongst zoo animals has been legalized under a new federal law, I believe this could be just the tip of the iceberg”, says Pastor Matt.
The zoo trainer admits that the donkeys, Carlton and Cortez, have been life-mates ever since they moved to this zoo. “Even though they couldn’t make it official up until now”, explains Julie Whitebear, “these two have been a paragon of matrimony in all facets of their beautiful donkeyed relationship.”
Apparently, they’re planning on having a private ceremony in the zoo chapel. However, a public reception is being planned for the Spring. Carlton and Cortez are registered at all the top shops. They particularly like sweet snacks and colorful clothing.
