The zonkey has been named 'Khumba' and has a zebra mother and an albino dwarged blue-eyed donkey father, which lives on a nearby farm.

  3. The father can't be a true albino if he has blue eyes. Better ask that trampy zebra momma who's the real zonkey baby daddy!

  4. "Dwarged?" Even Google hasn't a clue.

    Adorable, though. I can't help thinking that "Let's Make a Deal" needs to buy this little guy. When they have a big ZONK showcase, they always seem to put a donkey in it, as if a donkey would be a bad prize (of course they aren't! They are the dogs of the horse world and great animals), but to have an actual zonkey would be hilarious. And he could hang out with Secretariat down the hall at Craig Ferguson's studio at CBS when he's not needed. Ha.

    I swear I'm not high, I just think a lot.

  5. "...father, which lives on a nearby farm." Nearby? What, did they pollinate?

  7. I think "dwarged" is supposed to say "dwarfed" -- just a typing mistake. It's only one key over from the correct letter on the keyboard.
