“What do you get when you cross an onion with a donkey?” (joke)

Onions frequently make people cry. A classic riddle is:

Q: What do you get when you cross an onion with a donkey?
A: Most times you get an onion with big ears, but once in a great while you’ll get a piece of ass that’ll bring tears to your eyes


The joke was printed in Rita Mae Brown’s novel, Southern Discomfort (1982).

Most of the time you simply get an onion with long ears, but every once in a while you get a piece of ass that brings tears to your eyes. smile

It’s an old joke, but a great one (Bette Midler loved to tell it during many of her shows). “What do you get when you cross an onion with a donkey? On most tries, you get an onion with four legs. But if you’re lucky, you might just get a piece of ass that makes you want to cry!”
