First they came for my donkey, then, they came for my cow. Now, they are coming for me.

Some people in Kenya are mad at the government because the damn government (Would they be Libertarians if they moved to the US?) wants cleaner streets and want their donkeys to use diapers (I had problems with the word "nappy" until I learned what it meant few months ago).

Mr John Kinyanjui, a donkey owner, said: "The council itself has workers. They can do the sweeping. We are paying taxes." Another anonimous donkey owner said "If we have to put nappies on our donkeys, soon they will say our cows need them too,".

Perhaps the donkey owners of Kenya should speak to the horse owners of Great Yarmouth, UK.

This is why.

well thats not really new ... the Fiakers (traditional horse carts) in Vienna and other cities in Austria are using a kind of diaper (attached between the back of the horse and the cart) to prevent the 'horse-apples' falling on the streets
