Cross Breeding

Our clergy deanery chapter had a visit to Noah's Ark Zoo Farm at Wraxall the other week. Commenting on what I think about the place, its theology and zoos generally would take a much longer post.

For the moment I wanted to say this. At one point the owner, Anthony, told us that they hoped one day to cross a zebra with a donkey to get a zonkey. A whispered voice behind me said, 'How do they know they won't get a Debra?'

I suppose someone has to start the bad jokes, so:

What do you get when you cross an atheist with a Jehovahs Witness?
Someone who knocks at your door for no apparent reason.

Really just asking for a dissertation on zebra crossings, isn't it?

That's already been done. The one I saw was called a zedonk, but variants available here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zonkey

I'll pass it on to Debs, though.
