As you may or may not have heard, the employees of the Mercury are currently obsessed with "tiny donkeys" (or "minidonks," if you prefer). (I am not asking if this obsession is ethical or not—it just is.)
Anyway, seeing as how we can't seem to live without a tiny donkey, the employees have decided to chip in and buy a tiny donkey which we will keep the office. (Again, not asking about the ethicality of this decision.) We will feed it our food scraps (ethical question not here yet), and make sure it always wears a sombrero (not even close to being there yet). We may name it something like, "Country Music's Toby Keith." (Okay, here comes the ethical query!) But we do have one question we've been pondering… since "burrito" in Spanish literally means "tiny donkey"...
CAN WE ETHICALLY FEED A TINY DONKEY A BURRITO? (Isn't that like cannibalism or something?)
Your opinions on this matter, as well as other names to call our tiny donkey, are welcome in the comments below.
