Protect Your Ass (Donkey)

     I know that most of you (like me) at one time or another have wondered why don't they make a beekeeping outfit for my donkey.  Wonder no more.  Manuel Juraci, 59, a beekeeper and inventor from Itatira, Brazil has designed a protective outfit for Boneco his friend and beekeeping partner for 10 years.  Boneco does most of the heavy lifting.  According to Manuel, "Not to discount the others, but Boneco is a faithful friend."  Manuel Juraci, also known as Professor Pardal (a comic book character who was an inventor) has also created among other interesting items, a lanyard mango, a honey centrifuge, a prototype helicopter and a wide variety of toys for his children.  

       The Itatira region (a largely arid and uncultivable landscape) is the largest producer of honey in the district of Ceara, Brazil, harvesting about 90 million pounds of honey per year.  Most of the harvested honey comes from africanized bees ( Killer Bees) so Boneco is definitely appreciating the new garb.  This video gives you a good chance to practice your Portuguese.

     I wonder if Manuel makes beekeeping outfits for pigs.  Probably not a good idea.
