Leggings for Horses

“What’s that? They’ve crossed a donkey with a zebra? You don’t say! What a world!”

“And how might you refer to this hoof-creature? A zonkey? No, that’s no good. What if we took the first letter of donkey and the end of zebra… That would be… What? Oh. I’m sorry! No, I wasn’t implying anything. Oh, just come back to bed, Debra!”

EDIT: It has been pointed out to me that another name for this creature is zedonk or sometimes zeedonk. According to Wikipedia, the offspring of a male horse and a female zebra is a zebrinny, while one of a Mister Zebra and a Missus Horse is a zebrula. Now you know. And if you want to feel sad, read on about the Tijuana Zebra.
