Fire! Fire! Where's the donkey?

A Scottish Local Authority has withdrawn some health and safety leaflets it produced for the benefit of its Urdu-speaking residents.

Where it should have said, 'If jumping out of a building (burning presumably) take a cushion with you to break your fall,' the translation read, 'If jumping out of a building, take a donkey with you.'

Oh my that made me larf!
I suppose the Donkey does say Hee Haw which could sound like a Siren, maybe it would warn other residents?

LOL! That's the funniest thing I've heard all day.

What a shame the LA didn't think of that excuse, Shirley! It could have saved them lots of money in reprinting - and smoke alarms!

Afraid of making an ass of themselves, obviously ;-)
