BBQ: Okay so if upon arriving at a Donkey BBQ someone says that it smells like ass, is that a good thing or a bad thing? And another question is would red wine or white wine go better with BBQ donkey? Also how heavily should an event like this be publicized? We wouldn't want to deal with angry PETA fanatics... or would we?

Yeah, I'm sure the kids will enjoy eating Burro Burgers and Jackass Stew. As a practical solution to several problems it makes a lot of sense, but many people would consider it socially unacceptable to eat donkeys and so it's an innovative idea that will never see the light of day.

Oatman, Arizona, Home of the Wild Burros
A town where burros run free! Probably causes a lot of problems, but it is an interesting novelty and probably helps attract tourists.

There are plenty of asses wondering all over the place in Trona, but they're mostly the two-legged kind!

CactusHugger: A relevant difference that should not go unmentioned is that while people go to great lengths to AVOID venomous spiders and snakes, they actually climb on top of horses. If humans avoided horses the way they avoid the poisonous critters, then deaths by horse would be extremely rare. So, that doesn't make horses nearly as dangerous as the spiders and snakes, it's just that there's more opportunity for accidents with horses.
