    Why in the world would you want to do that to the poor scared thing? Promotional stunt my ass......hope they actually follow up with the punishment on this one, and that the poor donkey isn't now scarred for life.

    "чертов идиоты" (chair-tof idi-yo-tee) is actually "f**king idiots" and I completely agree
    I'm not arguing, I'm just explaining why I'm right
