Travel Tips for Blackpool

There are some real asses in Blackpool

by sourbugger

If anything stands out as a symbol of the traditional English seaside holiday it has has to be the kids' donkey rides along the sands at Blackpool.

The well cared for donkeys are probably capable of carrying much greater loads than small children, after all they were used in the past down the mines to bring coal out.

These days the donkeys are subject to the same employment rights as humans in the European Union and this is enforced by zealous council officials. There is a maximum 48 hour working week and the right to a set lunchbreak. In addition (and humans really ought to get this one as well) they get every Friday off by virtue of a local bye-law.

For those impossiblly British, and cute photographs you will need to stump up two pounds to allow your offspring a little ride on a little donkey.

If you donkey is a bit slow...just say the words "Glue factory" into his ear.
