WHY DID THE DONKEY CROSS THE ROAD???

By: Scintle @ 16:07 (EST) / 609 / Comment ( 0 )

OK, I was in this game and it was just full of donkeys.  What is it?  Is it donkey spawing season?  Is there some magic donkey sping that everyone is accidentally drinking from?  is it the slav's?  Is someone teaching them that this is the best way to play poker?  One big bomb and boom!  Anyway, I a actually annoyed the donkies!  Yes, I know!  How did you Do that?

OK, back to the Donkey story.  I was in a Facebook freeroll game and getting bored of saying fold, fold, fold  constantly because you KNEW that if you bet even the minimum that someone would go all in.  The Facebook games seem just infested with donkers.  It was a table frull of non US players.  So I started singing a donkey song.  On the lines of the old 'RAMA LAMA DING DONG' type things from the fifty's.  So I was kind of making it up as I went along.  da da da da da da donkiey kong. (fold)  do do do do do da donkey bong. (fold) de de deeeee eeee eee eeee de de de de dee (fold) donkey bong.  In between of singing the donkey song, I asked questions of the donkeys....in the friendly spirit of anthropological research, of course.  Why were there so many donkeys?  Did they drink from the same enchanted spring?  Was it donkey spawning season?  Or donkey mating season?  Why did the donkey cross the road?  We'll never know because a semi hit him and he went spalt!  eeee eeee eee eeeee eee aaaaaah.  Donk donk donk donk donk donky Ann.  Be bee bee bee bee bee Bonky Bam.  Why did the Donkey cross the road?  He thought that was the way to go all in!  Why did the Donkey cross the road?  He wanted to lay an egg!  (I don't know why that's funny but it is!)  Can you Tell me WHY DID THE DONKEY CROSS THE ROAD?

Now, you underatnd, this came out in dribs and drabs as the game went along and I was interrupted by actually hitting 'check' or 'fold'.  And to show how full of donkeys this game was, there wasn't anyone who chimed in with a 'way to go' or 'that's right'.  Nothing.  No other chat at all.  Till finally someone said 'That's right you are in a game full of donkeys so why don't you go all in and go away'.  At the time, I had a hand that I thought I could do some donkey extermination but it turned out the other way around and I was out.  Hmmnpf....well....a freeroll. 

But I was really intrigued that there was a way to get under a donkey's skin.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone sang the donkey song every time they came across an infestation?  Donkey Song in Harmony!!!   Everyone goes all in sometimes.  Like in the first round of the freeroll sit n go's.  But not with any old thing, in a tourney, on the theory that other players don't want to risk losing everything all at once.  They destroy the enjoyment of others. Can't get rid of them.  Seems like a mild way to show displeasure.  An annoyed Donkey is a donkey that isn't playing as well as he might.  Although, there doesn't seem to be much thought in going all in, all the time. 

SING THE DONKEY SONG!
