The Walking Dead

There is something terribly wrong with Portuguese animals!

Old ladies say it all the time: it is deadly for donkeys to have any brain activity (A pensar morreu o burro). Poor animals… I’ve never witnessed it, but I can picture a cute little donkey strolling around and suddenly drop like flies.

Not everything is bad news, though: the young are really smart, I suppose, because they keep saying the old ones can´t learn languages (Burro velho não aprende línguas).

And then I started realizing: maybe all this walking dead animals thing is a major public health issue, and it’s the reason why the Portuguese don’t look at horses’ teeth (A cavalo dado não se olha o dente).
