    Greece Bans Tourists From Riding the Famous Donkeys of Santorini

    Thank goodness these poor donkeys aren't made to suffer anymore. This is just commonsense, however much offense the overweight or politically correct may take at this.

    Being fat has consequences.

    The article reports: "in recent years, the rise of obesity has reportedly taken a toll on the animals, to the point that locals have even started to crossbreed animals to create mules as a way to keep up with the influx of larger-sized tourists"

    Looks like this was an increasing problem.

    The mule rides to the bottom of the grand canyon have a 200 pound weight limit.

    No problem, they can put you on a chariot driven by two mules.

    While admittedly I am larger now than I was in my younger years, even back then when I was working out and in great shape I was around 250 lbs so this doesn't just effect fat people its just big people in general. I am OK with that though as frankly donkeys scare the **** out of me. I still consider Shrek to be one of the most horrifying movies I have ever seen to date.

    No way in ****ing hell. They are worse than horses and rabbits and almost as bad as centipedes.
