A donkey and a fox,
Went into raptures in front of a sculpture of celebrity,
The donkey discerned no defect
And admired with worship the face,
The fox on the contrary everything examines
And in depth analyze the thing,
He turns all around and in every direction,
Probe and examines from all angles,
as soon he made it, he so expressed himself,
"Beautiful animal he says but no brain,"
How many people are busts in this way.

"How many people are busts in this way".

Mostly women yann, but I hear it's becoming trendy with some brands of males.

She told me "play one for your supper Danny and maybe you'll get breakfast".
