Donkey Popularity Tied to 'Shrek Effect'
People are morons. Here's the evidence: The BBC
says an alarming number of donkeys are being purchased as pets and this "donkey craze" is partially inspired by the "Shrek"
"It has certainly become apparent that there are a lot more donkeys appearing," says Peter Jinman, a former president of the British Veterinary Association.
But there's a problem. The people buying these animals don't have a clue about donkey upkeep and care. Donkeys require ample land and ample attention -- two things carefree owners generally lack. Moreover, donkeys generally don't sound like Eddie Murphy. This is because donkeys don't talk. They stand there. They run around. They do funny things with their ears. That's it.
Unfortunately, the donkey craze could continue as plans are afoot for "Shrek 3" and "Shrek 4." -- Mac
