Flying Donkey

I'm only supposed to eat carrots and carry large loads for no pay, so winching me up the Cathedral was not in my plans for the day. The crowd below seemed quite excited as over their heads I shot past, till the zip wire could bear me no longer then it was my turn to kick Ass. To say I was grateful to those folk who cushioned my fall, there's no doubt. So I left them a gift for their rose beds- I hope that it all washes out.

Thanks, John. Not quite sure how the victims explained their injuries to their wives without appearing drunk :)
