I believe adagio, and Badfinger-fan also expressed an interest ... so don't feel TOO bad if you think my effort was wasted / your reply 'unworthy'  !  8)  However ...

when you play poker, a donkey is a player new to the game who doesnt know what they are doing.

When the donkey wins a hand over the player that knows what they are doing the good player gets angry........and having a gambling problem kills the donkey and gets caught, hence the  tears.


Daddy cries because he ends up in jail over murdering the donkey to recover any winnings........thats what they told us in kindergarten anyway ;)
