MAKE BELIEVE ZEBRAS

Love the story here from the Huffington Post (yes, happy to admit I read the rag to get a different perspective on life) about the Cairo Zoo who allegedly painted stripes on donkeys in order to pass them off as zebras.

Why? ... answer at the end of the article ... money.   Took the lead from a Gaza Zoo who, in 2010, acquired two donkeys for $700 and gave them a paint-over because they couldn't afford $30,000 for a real zebra.

Got me thinking ... how many of our politicians are fakes masquerading as real ones?     Many might argue any List MP for starters.

You mean donkeys masquerading as zebras, Vet?

There's only one party of which I'm aware has black and white as its official colours.

They do bray a lot, as well.
