If you've ever enjoyed the pleasure of riding a donkey, you'll understand the current craze sweeping through the resident population of one English town, where things are never quite as they seem.
Donkey riding has become the preferred free-time activity for the people of Chutney-on-the-Fritz, who just can't leave the poor beasts alone!
The tourists, also, have latched on to the novelty outdoor experience, and several trails can be explored beyond the town's limits.
Brice Anman, a donkey tour guide, said:
"Donkey-riding can be delightful, especially if your donkey is a good-looking animal."
And Anne Crimbe, landlady of the local hostelry, the Macabre Inn, said:
"It's a lovely activity, especially if you pick the right night, and it's not chucking it down with rain."
Trails have been developed through Nettleborough-on-the-Fritz, Toeville and Stickleback's Water, and cost only 50p.
All riders should be aware that they are responsible for picking up and disposing of their donkey's droppings.
