The world of funny articles...Nyahaha, this is even funnier to read than the last...
'Donkeys more loyal than housewives'
New Delhi (AFP) - Houswives and donkeys are much the same except that the beasts of burden are better companions, complain less and are more loyal, according to a school textbook used in India's western state of Rajasthan.
"A donkey is like a housewife. In fact the donkey is a shade better, for while the housewife may sometimes complain and walk off to her parents' home, you'll never catch the donkey being disloyal to his master," Tuesday's Times of India quoted the Hindi-language book saying.
The book, for fourteen year olds, was approved by the state's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party administration but has sparked protests from its women's unit, the report said.
Shimla Parasher, chief of the party's women's wing, has threatened protests of the "objectionable sections" are not deleted.
The state education department however noted that women were not singled out - politicians also were rated.
"The same chapter also compares the donkey to politicians, calling the animal thick-skinned," a state education official was quoted as saying by the newspaper. - Borneo Bulletin
You've got to admit, that was a pretty funny article. Haha, always trust Borneo Bulletin to make me laugh. I mean, if you got a problem against your houswife, marry a donkey!
Lotsa love, Jana
